Kim Jong Un, First Secretary of the Workers’ Party of Korea, First Chairman of the National Defence Commission of the DPRK and Supreme Commander of the Korean People’s Army, had a photo session with the participants in the landing and manoeuvre for target strike of KPA airborne subunits.
Waving back to the cheering participants, the Supreme Commander encouraged the service personnel who admirably carried out their difficult tasks of combat training which demanded enduring the biggest physical burdens under the worst conditions by making it their daily routine and habit to conduct training, as intended by the Party.
He had a photo session with them, expressing his expectation and conviction that they would, in the future, too, firmly prepare themselves as a-match-for-a-hundred combatants possessed of perfect fighting capabilities by intensifying training under the simulated conditions of an actual war so that they can perform ant combat tasks independently.
North-targeted War Manoeuvres Should Not Be Repeated Any Longer
The US and south Korean authorities staged the provocative Ulji Freedom Guardian war manoeuvres against the north for more than ten days since August 18, driving the situation on the Korean peninsula and the inter-Korean relations into the worst phase.
The spokesman for the Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of Korea in a statement issued on August 29 said that UFG was the most dangerous nuclear war manoeuvres for invading the north, to which the “tailored deterrence strategy” aimed to make a preemptive nuclear strike at the DPRK was applied for the first time.

The history of space development is not so long in the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea.
After the successful launching of Kwangmyongsong 1, the first artificial earth satellite of the country, in August 1998, Kwangmyongsong 3-2 went into orbit, 9 minutes 27 seconds after the blast-off, in December 2012. The satellite project is based on the DPRK’s home resources, ranging from their design to manufacture, assembly, launch and post-launch observation. Now the Korean people are the master of an independent country working for space development.
In April last year the Seventh Session of the 12th Supreme People’s Assembly of the DPRK passed the DPRK Law on Space Development and adopted an ordinance and a resolution on organizing the National Aerospace Development Administration of the DPRK. The law stipulates the aim and principle of space development, and the position and duty of the NADA. The DPRK’s aim of space development is to protect the interest of the state and solve necessary sci-tech problems arising in the economic construction and the life of the people by using space science and technology. The principle is to develop space for out-and-out peaceful purposes while thoroughly maintaining the Juche-oriented and independent stand. The law specifies that the NADA organizes a unified guidance on space development, represents the state in the field of space development, draws up the country’s general space development and activity programme, supervises and controls the implementation while cooperating and exchanging with international organizations and space institutions of other countries. It also clarifies that the success gained from space development technology and space activity should be used for no other purposes than the country’s interest and economic development and the improvement of the people’s living standards, and legally guarantees all the principled matters in space activity ranging from notification of objects to be launched into space and responsibility for its safety to the investigation of accident and rescue and compensation for damages. Along with this, it legally affirms the DPRK’s external standpoint that it cooperates with international organizations and other countries in the field of space development on the principle of equality, mutual benefit and mutual security, respects relevant international laws and regulations on development and use of space and opposes the selection and application of double standards in space activity and military activity in space. With the proclamation of the legal measures on organizing the NADA and adopting space development as a state programme, the DPRK can exercise the legitimate right of space power.
