The world will witness the largest military parade in the history of North Korea with thousands of soldiers on October 10. That happens to be the 75th anniversary of the founding of the Workers’ Party. Kim Jong-un wants to show to the world a section of the arsenal in his inventory.
This is despite UN-imposed sanctions. The timing of the parade is a few weeks prior to the US presidential election. Parades of this nature are formal displays of the country’s military might. Some treat it as a provocation of sort and an opportunity to show off a new range of missiles and weaponry even though North Korea is under strict economic sanctions.
