On September 11, 2016 (Sunday), the DPRK Foreign’s Ministry released the following statement:

Scientists and technicians of the Nuclear Weapons Institute of the DPRK successfully conducted a nuclear explosive test for judging the power of nuclear warheads. Much upset by this, the Obama group has gone foolish in its moves to incite an atmosphere of putting pressure and stifling the DPRK and to cover up its failed DPRK policy by branding the DPRK as the “harasser of peace.”

On Friday Obama personally made public a “statement” in which he branded the DPRK’s nuclear warheads explosive test as a “threat” and “provocation” to peace and security and “ignorance” of the international norms of practices, adding that he will never acknowledge the DPRK as a nuclear weapons state but will cooperate with the international community to take additional crucial measures.

The nuclear warheads explosive test was a demonstration of the toughest will of the DPRK that showed it is ready to counterattack the enemies if they make a provocation as it was part of the substantial countermeasures to the threat of a nuclear war and sanctions racket kicked up by the hostile forces including the US

We are holding fast to the line of simultaneously developing the two fronts to safeguard the sovereignty, right to existence and peace from the ever-increasing nuclear threat and blackmail of the US, and the recent test was just part of the whole course of implementing the line.

With the end of its tenure nearing the Obama group has faced a flurry of censures from the public at home and abroad for its totally bankrupt DPRK policy which only resulted in compelling the DPRK to increase its nuclear attack capabilities moment by moment.

Obama’s recent publication of the “statement” is aimed to shift the blame for pushing the DPRK to have access to nukes and save even a bit his face that was completely lost before the world.

The US is the very one which compelled the DPRK to develop nuclear warheads, and its nuclear threat and blackmail that have constantly been posed to the DPRK almost every day for the past decades have been an engine which pushed the DPRK to reach this point.

Obama is trying hard to deny the DPRK’s strategic position as a legitimate nuclear weapons state but it is as foolish an act as trying to eclipse the sun with a palm.

It is foolhardy for the Obama group to get itself busy while crying out for the senseless sanctions ballad even today when its “strategic patience” policy became totally bankrupt and it is nearing the end of its tenure.

As was already clarified, we will continue to take measures for increasing the nuclear force of the country in quality and in quantity to safeguard the dignity and the right to existence of the DPRK and ensure genuine peace from the US increasing threat of a nuclear war.
