The Central Committee and the Central Military Commission of the Workers’ Party of Korea gave a banquet at the Mokran House on Sunday in celebration of the successful second test-fire of ICBM Hwasong-14.

Respected Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un was present at the banquet.

Invited to it were contributors to the test-fire.

Ri Man Gon, Ri Pyong Chol, Kim Rak Gyom, Kim Jong Sik, Jong Sung Il, Jang Chang Ha and Jon Il Ho were on hand.

When Kim Jong Un arrived at the banquet hall together with Ri Sol Ju, the participants in the banquet warmly welcomed him.

Ri Man Gon, vice-chairman of the C.C., WPK, made a congratulatory speech.

He said the second ICBM test-fire only 20 days after the first test-fire is a world-startling event that eloquently proved the development speed of the Juche-oriented rocket industry making a remarkable leaping forward in the great era of Kim Jong Un and its inexhaustible potentiality and the invincible stamina of heroic Korea.

The successful second test-fire of Hwasong-14 is giving great joy and courage to the army and people of the DPRK as it hit hard the empire of evils, the chieftain of aggression, again on the head before the world is relieved of the shock by the first test-fire, and it has established a new world political structure with socialist Korea as its axis, he noted, adding:

The great success in the second test-fire was another thrilling victory in the history of the nation brought about entirely by the gifted wisdom, strong guts and prominent leadership of the respected Supreme Leader.

The speaker underlined the need to ceaselessly produce new-type ballistic rockets with high mobility and striking power in the sky-high spirit of having brought about a miraculous victory of July 28 through the “March 18 Revolution” and the “July 4 Revolution” under the guidance of the respected Supreme Leader and make a series of successes in the field of defence scientific research capable of overtaking the world in the air, on seas and under waters.
