As North Korea marked the 105th birthday of its founding President, Kim Il-sung, who died in the year 1994, North Korea warned the US not to take provocative action in the region, claiming it is ready to hit back with nuclear attacks.
Soldiers, tanks and other military hardware were paraded, while, rows of military bands and columns of troops marched into Pyongyang’s main Kim Il-sung square in the heart of the city on Saturday.
It comes amid speculation that the current leader, Kim Jong-un, could order another nuclear test.
“We’re prepared to respond to an all-out war with an all-out war,” North Korean military official Choe Ryong-Hae said, adding: “We are ready to hit back with nuclear attacks of our own style against any nuclear attacks.”
With concerns that the state is getting closer to successfully producing a nuclear arsenal, Saturday’s parade was an opportunity for Kim to broadcast North Korea’s current military capabilities.
