There is looming tension as the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DRPK) government on Wednesday successfully carried out a hydrogen bomb test.
The first H-bomb test that has been criticized by Americans was successfully conducted in Juche Korea at 10:00 on Wednesday, Juche 105 (2016), pursuant to the strategic determination of the Workers’ Party of Korea (WPK). The detonation of the thermonuclear weapon triggered a 5.1-magnitude earthquake when it exploded, according to The Daily Mail.
According to a statement released by DRPK government, it was confirmed that the H-bomb test conducted in a safe and perfect manner had no adverse impact on the ecological environment.
“The test means a higher stage of the DPRK’s development of nuclear force. This test is a measure for self-defence the DPRK has taken to firmly protect the sovereignty of the country and the vital right of the nation from the ever-growing nuclear threat and blackmail by the U.S.-led hostile forces and to reliably safeguard the peace on the Korean Peninsula and regional security,” the statement reads in parts.
“Since the appearance of the word hostility in the world there has been no precedent of such deep-rooted, harsh and persistent policy as the hostile policy the U.S. has pursued towards the DPRK.”
The statement adds that the U.S. is a gang of cruel robbers which has worked hard to bring even a nuclear disaster to the DPRK, not content with having imposed the thrice-cursed and unheard-of political isolation, economic blockade and military pressure on it for the mere reason that it has differing ideology and social system and refuses to yield to the former’s ambition for aggression.
By succeeding in the H-bomb test in the most perfect manner to be specially recorded in history, the DPRK proudly joined the advanced ranks of nuclear weapons states possessed of even H-bomb and the Korean people came to demonstrate the spirit of the dignified nation equipped with the most powerful nuclear deterrent.
The Korean Peninsula and its vicinity are turning into the world’s biggest hotspot where a nuclear war may break out since they have been constantly stormed with all nuclear strike means of the U.S. imperialist aggressor troops, including nuclear carrier strike group and nuclear strategic flying corps.
“The DPRK is a genuine peace-loving state which has made all efforts to protect peace on the Korean Peninsula and security in the region from the U.S. vicious nuclear war scenario,” DPRK government says.
However, the government says that DPRK is a responsible nuclear weapons state and will ‘neither be the first to use nuclear weapons nor transfer relevant means and technology under any circumstances as already declared as long as the hostile forces for aggression do not encroach upon its sovereignty.’
