Present on the occasion were Hong Sung Mu, First Deputy Department Director of the Central Committee of the WPK, officials of the Department of Munitions Industry of the Party Central Committee and officials of the Nuclear Weapon Institute and the General Missile Bureau.
The Nuclear Weapon Institute of the DPRK made a report to
He examined the operational plan and written orders for nuclear counterattack.
He highly appreciated the tireless efforts and great achievements of the Nuclear Weapon Institute which made a contribution to strengthening our nuclear forces into reliable forces that can cope with any nuclear emergency in accordance with the strategic plan and intention of the Party Central Committee for making a combined use of nuclear weapons with different means in different operational theatre.
He impressively said that we have undauntedly followed the long arduous road of nuclear possession, and continued:
The enemy our nuclear forces with powerful nuclear deterrence should fight is not a country or a specific group but the war and nuclear disaster themselves. The line of our Party on increasing the nuclear forces is precisely aimed at defending the eternal security of the state and the regional peace and stability.
We should never rest content with the work to strengthen the thorough responding posture of our nuclear forces but continue to strive to strengthen the nuclear forces constantly. When we are perfectly prepared to use nuclear weapons any time and anywhere, we may not use nuclear weapons forever. When the powerful and overwhelming nuclear forces beyond imagination maintain offensive posture, the enemy will be afraid of us and cannot dare to provoke our sovereignty, system and people.
The Nuclear Weapon Institute and the atomic energy sector should expand in a prospective way the production of weapon-grade nuclear materials and speed up the production of powerful nuclear weapons in order to thoroughly implement the plan of the Party Central Committee on increasing the amount of nuclear weapons at an exponential rate, he said and put forward important tasks for the Nuclear Weapon Institute and the atomic energy sector.
