Kim Jong Un Again Guides Fire of New Type Large-caliber Multiple Rocket Launching System
Pyongyang, March 22 (KCNA) -- Supreme Commander of the Korean People's Army (KPA) Kim Jong Un, first secretary of the Workers' Party of Korea (WPK) and first chairman of the National Defence Commission of the DPRK, again guided the fire of the new type large-caliber multiple rocket launching system.

He took an observation post with the officials accompanying him before giving an order to start the fire.

Watching the results of the fire, he expressed great satisfaction over the perfect accuracy of rockets. He highly praised once again the officials, scientists and technicians in the field of defence science and munitions factories for successfully manufacturing the system which is of great strategic importance in remarkably increasing the capability of the KPA to mount a precision attack on the enemies' targets in the operational theater in the southern part of Korea.

He expressed great expectation and belief that they would bring the greatest heyday in the development of national defence science this year when the Seventh Congress of the WPK is to be held by steadily intensifying the work for developing new Juche-based weapons of Korean style, true to the WPK's idea of attaching importance to national defence science and technology, before having a photo taken with them.

He was accompanied by KPA Vice Marshal Hwang Pyong So, director of the General Political Bureau of the KPA, Army General Ri Myong Su, chief of the KPA General Staff, Army Col. General Yun Tong Hyon, vice-minister of the People's Armed Forces, and Jo Yong Won, Hong Yong Chil and Kim Jong Sik, vice department directors of the C.C., WPK.
