The soldiers were greatly excited and delighted to enter the yard of the Party Central Committee with their glorious colors in high spirit of fully demonstrating the might of nuclear strategic force of the DPRK in the launching drill to be specially recorded in the history of the development of the strategic force under the personal guidance of the respected Comrade Kim Jong Un.

Attending a photo session were Kim Jong Sik, vice department director of the WPK Central Committee, and Jang Chang Ha, general director of the General Missile Bureau.

When Kim Jong Un appeared at the venue of the photo session, all the missile soldiers broke into cheers in token of the most enthusiastic respect, looking up to him, the absolute strength of powerful Chuch’e Korea and representative of the great dignity.

Kim Jong Un congratulated the soldiers of the company on showing by practical action the steadfast stand of the Party, government, army and people of the DPRK to stand against and counter with the U.S. and successfully carrying out the Party’s battle order to demonstrate the reliability and militant might of the nuclear strategic force of the DPRK by resolutely and proudly conducting the launching drill of the most powerful ICBM which greatly shocked the U.S. imperialists and their top class stooges, the wreckers of peace and stability, who have committed self-destructive acts all the year round, obsessed with the incurable hysteria of confrontation with the inviolable DPRK.

Saying that he was deeply impressed with the combat efficiency of the company which displayed high mobility and rapid attack capability in the launching drill, he expressed warm thanks to the company, reflecting the trust of all the people in it.

He said that the resolute military activity conducted by the company this time true to the Party’s battle order was a demonstration of loyalty and strong stand of the DPRK’s armed forces defending the sovereignty of the country and a clear explanation of the offensive counteraction mode and the evolution of the nuclear strategy and doctrine of the DPRK not to hesitate even a nuclear attack when the enemy provoke it with nukes.

Saying that defending of the country’s dignity, sovereignty and interests can be certainly guaranteed only by strong power, he added that it is the genuine defense capability and defense of durable peace to have the real capability for preemptively attacking the enemy anywhere and the war posture, making any enemy feel fear.

He said that the duty of the company is very important, adding that the company should always bear deep in mind the heavy responsibility for safeguarding the final fort for defending the sovereignty and social system of our state and strive to steadily improve its combat efficiency as a force performing a part role of the strategic forces of the country.

Expressing expectation that the company would reliably carry out its sacred special mission of preventing a war and defending peace by fully preparing itself for fulfilling its mission of nuclear war deterrence anytime, he paid tribute to the brilliant honor of the Second Red Flag Company of the General Missile Bureau, a pride of the Party and the state, and had a photo session with the reliable soldiers.

The combatants of the company made a firm pledge to always remain faithful to the order of the great Party Central Committee and carry out in a responsible manner the important mission the company assumed before the Party, the country and the revolution.
