Feats of Great Men for Strengthening Defence Capability Praised by German Body
Pyongyang, January 18 (KCNA) -- The Anti-Imperialist Forum of Germany posted on its internet website an article titled "Undying feats devoted to strengthening defence capability" hailing the success of the DPRK's first H-bomb test on January 11.

The article said:

Early in the 1960s President Kim Il Sung said one could defend sovereignty only when one simultaneously builds up the economy and defence even though one has to tighten one's belt more.

In the 1990s when the Korean people were forced to undergo the Arduous March owing to the imperialists' moves to isolate and stifle the DPRK and repeated natural disasters, leader Kim Jong Il resolutely kept to the road of Songun for bolstering up the defence capabilities.

In the course the Korean people successfully conducted two underground nuclear tests in 2006 and 2009 to accomplish the great national historic feats of becoming a nuclear weapons state.

Marshal Kim Jong Un set out the line of simultaneously pushing forward economic construction and the building of nuclear force at the plenary meeting of the Central Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea in March, 2013.

In less than three years since the new line was set out the explosion of the first H-bomb test in the DPRK jolted the world.

The service personnel and people of the DPRK upon the historic event highly praise Kim Jong Un for guaranteeing the ever-lasting future of the Korean nation while glorifying the undying feats of Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il.
