KPA General Staff Blasts Japan's Ruckus after DPRK's Satellite Launch
Pyongyang, April 8 (KCNA) -- The General Staff of the Korean People's Army released a report Wednesday.

The report said:

At a time when not only all the Korean people but the world rejoice over and hail the DPRK's successful launch of satellite for peaceful purposes only the Japanese reactionaries are kicking up a ruckus, conducting an operation to search for parts of the carrier rocket body that dropped in sea waters after being separated from it right after its launch.

The dependable scientists and technicians of the DPRK succeeded in accurately putting satellite Kwangmyongsong-2 into its orbit by carrier rocket Unha-2 according to the state plan for the development of outer space. This was a shining victory in the political, diplomatic and national defence fields of the great Workers' Party of Korea and a great event of significance in the nation's history which proved before the world that the sovereign dignity of Songun Korea is truth and that truth is sure to triumph.

Voices that the DPRK's satellite launch is an inviolable legitimate right of a sovereign state are heard not only from various countries but from the UN forum.

The Japanese reactionaries worked desperately, blustering that they would "intercept" the DPRK's above-said satellite long before its launch. They are mobilizing warships for the operation to find out those parts in defiance of reality. This is a vicious act of espionage and interference in the internal affairs of the DPRK and an intolerable military provocative act of infringing upon its sovereignty.

They provoked the laughter of the world people and suffered shame by releasing a false report that the DPRK "launched satellite" although it did not do it, obsessed by persecution mania. Their operation to search for the above-mentioned parts only reveals their deplorable position in which they feel utterly frustrated by the satellite launch and proves that it is nothing but a ridiculous and foolish ploy to improve their tarnished image even a bit.

The Japanese reactionaries should drop their inveterate bad habit of always doing evils to others and stop the above-said absurd military espionage at once.

As already clarified, the revolutionary armed forces of the DPRK will neither overlook the reckless provocations made by the Japanese reactionaries, the sworn enemy of the Korean people, against the DPRK nor allow them to infringe upon its sovereignty even a bit.
