The Standing Committee of the Supreme People’s Assembly of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea Saturday issued a decree on awarding the title of DPRK Hero and Gold Star Medal and Order of National Flag 1st Class to the new-type ICBM Hwasongpho-17 launching vehicle No. 321, which clearly proved before the world that the DPRK is a full-fledged nuclear power capable of standing against the nuclear supremacy of the U.S. imperialists and fully demonstrated its might as the most powerful ICBM state.

The test-fire of the new-type ICBM Hwasongpho-17 proudly conducted to demonstrate the dignity and sovereignty of our great state is a historic event that solemnly declared the toughest will of the Workers’ Party of Korea and the DPRK government to react to the enemy’s nuke and full-frontal confrontation in kind and fully demonstrated before the whole world the mettle of socialist Korea with the absolute power to put an end to the imperialist tyranny in the earth, and it is an extra-large event that will remain forever in the nation’s history of 5 000 years.
