DPRK's Successful Satellite Launch Hailed by Personages of South Africa, Angola
Pyongyang, February 20 (KCNA) -- Personages of South Africa and Angola hailed the DPRK's successful launch of earth observation satellite Kwangmyongsong-4.

Bonakele Majuba, secretary of the Mfumalanga Provincial Committee of the South African Communist Party and chairman of the South African Association of Friendship and Solidarity with Korean People, said in a statement on Feb. 10:

The DPRK's successful satellite launch is an epochal event which demonstrated its scientific and technological power before the world.

The U.S. and its followers are working hard to stifle Korean socialism by abusing the UN Security Council but the DPRK's successful satellite launch conducted according to its own space development program is a great deed which demonstrated before the world that no force on earth can quell the independent spirit of the Korean people and overpower their creative strength.

The DPRK's successful satellite launch not only means the great victory of the Korean people but greatly encourages the world progressives.

The international secretary of the Youth Organization of the Popular Liberation Movement of Angola in a statement on Feb. 8 said that the news of the successful launch of satellite Kwangmyongsong-4 made under the personal guidance of Marshal Kim Jong Un, supreme leader of the Korean people, is instilling stronger conviction and courage into the progressives.
