Rodong Sinmun Monday comments that the successful test-fire of the new-type ICBM Hwasong-15 evoked a lively response among the international community, citing the facts.

The commentary says that the successful test-fire of Hwasong-15 has put the country on a higher strategic position, adding:

The military and strategic structure of confrontation between the DPRK and the U.S. has completely changed.

The unprecedented sanctions on the DPRK by the U.S. and its vassal forces also proved futile in the wake of the successful test-fire of Hwasong-15.

The hostile forces, loudmouthed about the “inevitability of the DPRK change in the line,” were frustrated in their attempt.

The complete failure of the U.S. hostile policy toward the DPRK is inevitable.

The DPRK wins.

The successful test-fire of ICBM Hwasong-15 adds to the high spirit of the DPRK army and people to put an end to the centuries-old showdown with the U.S.
