Multiple-Launch Rocket Systems Presented to KPA Units
Pyongyang, April 19 (KCNA) -- Multiple-launch rocket systems "Sonyon-ho" and "Nyomaeng-ho" manufactured with the assistance of school youth and children and members of the Democratic Women's Union of Korea (DWUK) across the country were presented to units of the Korean People's Army (KPA) with due ceremony at Hamhung Square in South Hamgyong Province on Thursday to mark the 80th anniversary of the KPA.

Those rockets are associated with their will to remain true to the Party's Songun revolutionary leadership generation after generation and their patriotic desire to make contributions to bolstering the nation's defence capability.

Present at the ceremony were Jon Yong Nam, first secretary of the C.C., the Kim Il Sung Socialist Youth League; Ro Song Sil, chairwoman of the C.C., DWUK; and officials concerned, service personnel of the KPA, school youth and children, members of the Women's Union and people in the province.

Presentation addresses and speeches were made.

At the end of the ceremony the rocket systems left for units of the KPA amid warm send-off of school youth and children, women's union members and other people in Hamhung City.
