Report of DPRK Academy of Defense Science
The Academy of Defence Science of the DPRK released the following report on July 4:

Scientists and technicians of the DPRK Academy of Defence Science successfully carried out the test-fire of intercontinental ballistic rocket Hwasong-14, newly researched and developed by them, under the strategic decision of Kim Jong Un, Chairman of the Workers' Party of Korea, Chairman of the State Affairs Commission of the DPRK and Supreme Commander of the Korean People's Army.

The rocket blasted off from the northwestern part of the DPRK at 9:00, July 4, Juche 106 (2017) to make 39-minute flight along its pre-set trajectory before accurately hitting the target waters in the open sea in the East Sea of Korea.

The test-fire was carried out at the maximum angle launch system and had no adverse effect on the security of neighbouring countries.

The rocket flew 933km after reaching the maximum altitude of 2 802km.

Kim Jong Un, Supreme Leader of the Party, the state and the army, personally observed the process of the test-fire on the spot and solemnly declared its shining success to the whole world.

The success in the test-fire of intercontinental ballistic rocket Hwasong-14, the final gate to rounding off the state nuclear force, at one go is a powerful demonstration of the invincible might of Juche Korea and the tremendous capability of its self-reliant national defence industry that has advanced at a remarkably rapid pace under the new line of the great Workers' Party of Korea on the simultaneous development of the two fronts, and a great auspicious event to be specially recorded in the history of the DPRK which has long craved for powerful defence capabilities.

As a full-fledged nuclear power that has been possessed of the most powerful intercontinental ballistic rocket capable of hitting any part of the world, along with nuclear weapons, the DPRK will fundamentally put an end to the US nuclear war threat and blackmail and reliably defend the peace and stability of the Korean peninsula and the region.
