A Pyongyang city mass rally was held at
Attending it were Kim Ki Nam, Choe Thae Bok, Ri Su Yong and others, Kim Yong Dae, chairman of the Central Committee of the Korean Social Democratic Party, officials of the Cabinet, public organizations, ministries and national agencies, institutions and industrial establishments in Pyongyang and working people and youth and students.
The statement of the DPRK government was read out by Ri Su Yong, member of the Political Bureau of the Central Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea, member of the State Affairs Commission of the DPRK and vice-chairman of the WPK Central Committee.
Kim Ki Nam, member of the Political Bureau of the WPK Central Committee, member of the State Affairs Commission of the DPRK and vice-chairman of the WPK Central Committee, addressed the meeting.
Noting that the US and its vassal forces recently cooked up a "sanctions resolution" over the DPRK's test-launch of ICBM by abusing the name of the UN again, the speaker condemned it as an unprecedented unethical act and an intolerable hideous state terrorism aimed at completely violating the DPRK's sovereignty and its rights to existence and development.
The US, the most shameless gangster-like state, framed up the "sanctions resolution" with dastards acting as a voting machine without any principle. This is no more than desperate efforts of those frightened at the might of the DPRK which rose to the high strategic position as a nuclear power of Juche and a world-level military power.
The DPRK's access to the strongest nukes and rockets is a legitimate step to defend the destiny of the country and the nation and ensure the right to independent development. The imperialistic US styling itself as the "only superpower in the world" would cook up such dirty criminal documents, daring not to provoke the DPRK though it mobilize all its vassal forces. Such reality clearly proves that our Party's line of simultaneously developing the two fronts is the eternal banner and invincible weapon for peace and prosperity.
The hostile forces have so far cooked up UN "sanctions resolutions" several times, faulting the DPRK's exercise of just rights. But any sanctions and pressure could not browbeat the DPRK but hardened its independent faith and resulted in increasing the might of its self-development.
We will further increase the might of justice to wipe out the source of all injustice and evils now that the gangster-like acts of the US have reached the height, and clearly show what miserable and wretched fate those standing in the way of the DPRK will have to face.
The neighbouring countries which blindly followed the US as its puppets, away with elementary justice and etiquettes, will never be able to evade the responsibility for having coiled up the situation on the Korean peninsula and endangered peace and security in the region.
Though the US and the groups counting on it are getting so frantic, the DPRK remains unshaken as it is possessed of the strongest nuclear weapons and ICBM, the speaker said, calling on all people to staunchly struggle for the final victory in the standoff with the US-led imperialists and building a powerful socialist nation under the ever-victorious guidance of Supreme Leader
Then, representatives of various circles made speeches.
Speaking on behalf of the Korean working class, Pak Hyong Ryol, manager of Pyongyang Cornstarch Factory, expressed full support for the statement of the DPRK government which categorically rejected the "sanctions resolutions" cooked up by the US and other hostile forces over the DPRK's ICBM test-launch.
On behalf of agricultural workers, Jong Yong Suk, chairwoman of Ryokpho District Cooperative Farm Management Committee, expressed the resolve to foil the enemies' vicious sanctions and blockade with increased agricultural production, bearing in mind that rice just means socialism and bullets and bombs for wiping out the enemies.
Representing intellectuals, Kim Chol Ho, dean of faculty of Kim Chaek University of Technology, said that the intellectuals would smash the enemies' iron net of sanctions with world-startling sci-tech achievements in keeping with the present situation where the US imperialists made such unprecedented provocation as totally checking the DPRK's normal trade and economic exchanges.
Speaking on behalf of the youths, Mun Chol, first secretary of the Pyongyang Municipal Youth League Committee, said that the young people would become five million human bullets and bombs and nuclear warheads to blow the US from this planet.
Then, followed a mass demonstration.
Its participants marched in fine array to the tune of brass band music, holding placards with such slogans as "Let's become human bullets and bombs devotedly defending Supreme Leader Comrade
