Workers and trade union members held a meeting at the Phyongchon Revolutionary Site Wednesday to celebrate the successful test-launch of intercontinental ballistic rocket Hwasong-14.

Prior to the meeting, they placed bouquets at the mosaic of President Kim Il Sung, leader Kim Jong Il and anti-Japanese war heroine Kim Jong Suk and paid tribute to them.

Speakers at the meeting said that the successful test-launch was a striking demonstration of the heroic stamina of the powerful Paektusan nation and the exhaustible national power and represented the great victory that dealt merciless blows at the enemies making desperate efforts to prevent the dynamic advance of the DPRK.

They said that the great victory is the precious fruition of the shining feats performed by President Kim Il Sung and leader Kim Jong Il who designated the site for the first ordnance factory in the liberated country, led the untrodden path of munitions industry and provided the powerful war deterrent and the ceaseless devoted efforts made by respected Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un who opened the way of developing new-type rockets in order to firmly defend the country’s dignity and sovereignty.

They extended warm congratulations to the scientists in the field of defence science who put the defence capabilities on the highest phase through their painstaking practice. They called upon the workers and trade union members to push ahead with the great advance of Mallima for carrying out the decision of the Seventh Congress of the Workers’ Party of Korea with the death-defying will.
