Pyongyang, September 10 (KCNA) -- Respected Supreme Leader
He, with a broad smile on his face, waved back to the cheering participants in token of his warm militant salute.
He highly praised once again the reliable combatants in the nuclear field of the party for dealing a merciless sledge-hammer blow to the U.S. imperialists and their vassal forces pouncing on from all directions to stamp out the sovereignty and rights to existence and development of the DPRK and demonstrating over the world the dignity of Juche Korea and the strong spirit of its heroic people by producing a super-powerful Juche-based thermonuclear weapon.
Expressing the belief that the soldiers in the field of defence science would as ever register fresh miracles and innovations in the struggle for realizing the Workers' Party of Korea's plan for building a strategic nuclear force as they have devoted themselves to the drive to help the country join the ranks of the world's advanced nuclear powers, he had a photo taken with them.
Taking part in the photo session were Ri Man Gon and Hong Sung Mu, leading officials of the Workers' Party of Korea Central Committee.
