Pukguksong-3 SLBM test-launch is “powerful blow” to hostile forces: Rodong Sinmun

North Korean party daily also pledges to enhance its strength a "hundred and a thousand times"

The test-launch of the newly-developed Pukguksong-3 dealt a "powerful blow to hostile forces" and is the "solemn statement" of the Korean people, the North Korean party daily said on Friday, emphasizing that the test came at a crucial time.

The authoritative Rodong Sinmun, an organ of the Workers’ Party of Korea (WPK), featured a political essay (Jongron) playing up Wednesday’s test-firing of what has been described by North Korean media as a “new-type” submarine-launched ballistic missile (SLBM).
