Army-people Rallies Held to Hail Underground Nuclear Test
Pyongyang, February 19 (KCNA) -- Army-people rallies took place in South Phyongan, South Hwanghae and Ryanggang provinces and Nampho City on Tuesday to hail the third underground nuclear test.

Present at the rallies were leading officials of the party and power organs and working people's organizations, service personnel of the Korean People's Army and the Korean People's Internal Security Forces, officials of factories, enterprises, co-operative farms, universities and colleges and other people, teachers and students in the provinces.

Speakers said that the DPRK's third underground nuclear test that startled the world was a special event which fully demonstrated that the DPRK does what it is determined to do no matter what storm and stress it may encounter.

The successful nuclear test, which clearly showed that the will of Songun Korea for defending its sovereignty, is a shining fruition of matchless grit, pluck and wise leadership of the dear respected Marshal Kim Jong Un, they noted, adding:.

Neither "sanctions" racket nor military superiority of the arrogant enemies can provoke the great Paektusan nation even a bit. Gone are the days never to return when enemies could threaten and blackmail the DPRK with A-bombs.

They warmly congratulated scientists, technicians, workers and officials on achieving a spectacular success in their nuclear test and thereby fully demonstrating the independent dignity and invincible spirit of the great Paektusan nation.

Through the recent special event all the service personnel and people have come to cherish the belief that a final victory is sure to come when they dynamically advance along the road of independence, Songun and socialism, following the great Workers' Party of Korea, the speakers stressed.
