N. Korea’s military parade scaled down than usual, showcases no new missiles


North Korea forged ahead with a military parade
this morning and footage of the parade was revealed this evening. Unlike in the past, the regime remained relatively
quiet,… choosing not to broadcast it live. The scale of the parade has also been reduced. Oh Jung-hee reports. On the eve of the opening day of the PyeongChang
Winter Olympics, North Korea went ahead with a military parade… to commemorate its military
foundation day. The parade, however, was smaller in scale
than usual. Nevertheless, Pyongyang took it as an opportunity
to showcase its key weapons and missiles. The Pukguksong-2 missile, an intermediate
range ballistic missile using solid fuel engine, was revealed. Following were the Hwasong-12, Hwasong-14,…
and the Hwasong-15, an intercontinental ballistic missile,… which can fly over 13-thousand
kilometers,… putting the whole continental United States within reach. But new types of ICBMs or SLBMs — like Hwasong-13
or Pukguksong-3 — were not revealed. Pyongyang’s military parade took place for
roughly 1 hour and 30 minutes,… just half the time of the previous one in April last
year. And unlike in the past, the parade was not
broadcasted live. Instead, the regime released a recorded and
edited footage of the parade roughly five hours after it ended. Moreover, no foreign press was present at
the event. Such downscaled parade follows Pyongyang’s
declaration that it completed its nuclear weapons program, thus achieving nuclear statehood. Speculations are that the regime is paying
more attention to the international community’s response and to the PyeongChang Winter Olympics
atmosphere down in South Korea… where on top of its athletes and cheerleaders, a high-level
delegation that includes Kim Jong-un’s sister Kim Yo-jong will be visiting. Oh Jung-hee, Arirang News.
