The speakers warmly hailed the successful nuclear test which resolutely frustrated the brigandish campaign of "sanctions" launched by the U.S. in wanton violation of the DPRK's right to satellite launch for peaceful purposes and significantly decorated the February jubilee with another great victory of Songun Korea.
The nuclear test was a decisive and just step for self-defence to cope with the hostile policy of the U.S. with much fuss about "harsher sanctions" and "preemptive strike" over the satellite launch of the DPRK, they noted, and continued:
It serves as a striking demonstration of the might of a scientific and technological power and a military power capable of manufacturing any strike means if it is determined to do.
They extended warm congratulations to the heroic scientists, technicians, workers and officials on their great success in the nuclear test at a high level.
The successful nuclear test is the brilliant fruition of the extraordinary decision and matchless gut of the dear respected Kim Jong Un, peerless statesman and brilliant Songun commander of Mt. Paektu, who put the dignity and stamina of Kim Il Sung's and Kim Jong Il's Korea on the highest level, the speakers added.
It is the DPRK's mode and mettle of counter-action and confrontation to settle accounts with the barbaric hostile forces with a barrage of fire. If the U.S. continues going reckless, the DPRK will deal unpredictable merciless retaliatory blows at the U.S.
The speakers stressed that the service personnel and people of the DPRK would glorify this year marking its 65th founding anniversary and the 60th anniversary of the victory in the Fatherland Liberation War as great festival of victors and triumphantly build on this land the most powerful country in the world.
