DPRK's Successful Satellite Launch Hailed by Media Institutions of Nepal, Czech Republic
Pyongyang, February 19 (KCNA) -- Media institutions of Nepal and the Czech Republic issued statements on Feb. 7 and 12 to hail the DPRK's successful launch of earth observation satellite Kwangmyongsong-4.

The editorial board of the Nepali newspaper Arpan said:

The DPRK succeeded in launching satellite Kwangmyongsong-4 on Feb. 7.

The U.S. and its followers are making much ado, branding the DPRK's satellite launch for peaceful purposes as "inter-continental ballistic missile test" and "threat to security and peace".

This is an intensive expression of the fear and uneasiness about the tremendous national power of the DPRK.

The DPRK's successful satellite launch conducted under the wise guidance of Marshal Kim Jong Un is giving great joy and conviction to the world progressives.

We extend warm congratulations to the Marshal and the Korean people on the successful satellite launch.

The editorial board of the Czech newspaper Proscejobska Pravda denounced the U.S. and its followers for getting frantic in their moves to stifle the DPRK under the pretext of its satellite launch.

It also protested against the U.S. pushing the situation to an extreme pitch of strain while introducing arms equipment into south Korea to attack the DPRK.
