Supreme Leader attends banquet to celebrate second ICMB launch

The Central Committee and the Central Military Commission of the Workers’ Party of Korea hosted a lavish banquet on July 30 at the Mokran House to celebrate the country’s second test launch of ICBM Hwasong 14. Kim Jong Un, chairman of the Workers’ Party of Korea, chairman of the DPRK State Affairs Commission and supreme commander of the Korean People’s Army, attended the banquet. The personnel who contributed to the second test launch were invited to the event. Among the participants were Ri Man Gon, Ri Pyong Chol and other senior officials. The astounding success in another ICBM launch in a little over 20 days marks a megaevent that speaks for itself—the leapfrog development and great potential of the Juche-based missile industry and the invincible spirit of heroic Korea, Ri Man Gon, vice-chairman of the WPK Central Committee, said as he delivered a congratulatory speech. With the world community not yet out of the shock of our first ICBM test launch, we have succeeded in the second launch to deal another body blow to the empire of evil and mastermind of aggression, he said, adding that such a success has brought to the people great excitement and encouragement that beggar description and a new world political landscape is being unfolded centred on socialist Korea. Upon the authorization of Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un, he warmly congratulated the defence scientific personnel upon their feats of fully demonstrating the country’s independent dignity and prestige as a nuclear power of Juche and a world-class military power by bringing the second ICBM launch to success. He described the event as a resounding victory of national significance, attributing it to the Supreme Leader’s extraordinary wisdom, unrivalled courage and outstanding leadership. He said that the miraculous July 28 victory is a continuation of the “March 18 revolution” and the “July 4 revolution” that took place under the guidance of the Supreme Leader. And he stressed the need to continue to develop new type of ballistic missiles which are more advanced in terms of manoeuvrability and power and to achieve a series of defence scientific research hits that can help the country’s military overpower other countries in the air, on the sea, underwater and in any other space.
