In North Korea, eight days will mark the 75th anniversary of the founding of the military.
Along with this, there is a growing view that a large-scale military parade will be held in the capital Pyongyang since April last year in order to strengthen internal unity and show off the attitude of further accelerating nuclear and missile development.
North Korea is expected to hold a national celebration event on the 8th, which marks the 75th anniversary of the founding of the Korean People's Army.
In connection with this, a satellite photo released last month by an American research group shows what appears to be a rehearsal for a parade in a square in the center of the capital Pyongyang, showing internal unity in time for the anniversary. There is a growing view that a large-scale military parade will be held to show off the attitude of strengthening nuclear and missile development.
If North Korea holds a military parade, it will be the first time since April last year, which marked the 90th anniversary of the founding of the Korean People's Revolutionary Army, the predecessor of the Korean People's Army, whether a new type of weapon will appear. Attention is paid to whether the general secretary will give a speech.
In the third year of the "National Defense Five-Year Plan", General Secretary Kim advocated a policy of mass-producing tactical nuclear weapons and rapidly increasing the number of nuclear warheads along with the development of new ICBMs = intercontinental ballistic missiles. At the expanded meeting of the Central Military Commission of the Workers' Party of Korea held on the 6th, it was decided to constantly strengthen military training and prepare for war more rigorously.
