PYONGYANG, May 31 (KCNA) - The gangsters' regime and the puppet army of the ROK committed a hideous act of infringing upon the sovereignty of the DPRK that can never be overlooked by staging a clumsy counteraction of dangerous armed demonstration against the exercise of legitimate sovereign right of the DPRK. In this regard, the super-large multiple rocket sub-units conducted the power demonstration firing aiming at them for ensuring the sovereignty and security of the state with powerful and overwhelming means of war and clearly showing the DPRK's corresponding will not to hesitate to carry out a preemptive attack by invoking the right to self-defence at any time when the enemies attempt to use military force against the DPRK.

Kim Jong Un directly gave an order to organize the power demonstration firing and guided it on the spot.

Repeatedly stressing that it is the duty and mission of the armed forces of the DPRK approved by its Constitution to mobilize the military retaliatory forces for safeguarding the sovereignty of the state and the territorial integrity, he affirmed that today's power demonstration firing, which is to be held under the situation in which the enemy's political and military moves to plunder the DPRK of its sovereignty are being committed desperately, will serve as an occasion in clearly showing what consequences our rivals will face if they provoke us.

The salvo of a firepower sub-unit was carried out by operating the integrated fire-control system, a constituent of the combined nuclear weapons management system of the state.

The drill was attended by the 3rd Battalion of the 331st Red Flag Artillery Regiment under the artillery combined unit of the Korean People's Army assuming the important firing attack task on the western border area.

A secret code order of the Central Military Commission of the Workers' Party of Korea on the firepower mission was given to the fire attack companies of the battalion and the salvo of the battalion was carried out by the integrated fire-control system.

When Kim Jong Un gave an order to fire at the observation post, General Jang Chang Ha, director general of the Missile Administration of the DPRK, commanded the fire attack.

Moment, loud explosive sound rending heaven and earth broke out and showers of fire for annihilation which are proud of marvelous strength clearly demonstrated the DPRK's will to defend its sovereignty and react against the enemy.

A-match-for-a-hundred artillerymen, fully charged with firm hostility toward the enemy and clear outlook on the arch enemy, accurately hit an island target 365 km away and successfully carried out their task for power demonstration firing.

Kim Jong Un highly appreciated that the DPRK-style war attack means strongest in the world, being proud of formidable power, are maintaining prompt and thoroughgoing counter-attack posture and are fully prepared.

He stressed that the nuclear forces of the DPRK should be more thoroughly prepared to promptly and correctly perform the important mission of deterring a war and taking the initiative in the war at any time and under sudden situation.

The war means and preemptive attack forces of the DPRK will keep the war posture with their more developed capacity and fulfill their important mission of deterring a war and defending sovereignty.
