Visual Evidence From North Korean Parade Shows Expanding Arsenal
Analysts say the North Korean arsenal now includes the world's largest mobile intercontinental ballistic missile.
North Korean leader Kim Jong-un became emotional during a speech at a military parade over the weekend.
He wiped away tears as he spoke of the country's struggles.
While the military display featured newly developed massive missiles, Kim Jong-un thanked his troops for their efforts against the pandemic and recent natural disasters.
Observers have suggested that he may be trying to show humility even as the country faces a mounting economic crisis. A Kremlin spokesperson says Moscow hasn't received any evidence from Germany that Russian opposition activist, Alexei Navalny, was poisoned with a Novichok nerve agent. A grand military parade in North Korea has left analysts concerned about the nuclear threat posed by the hermit nation. The cause of their worry is a new missile, a mock-up of which was paraded during the 75th anniversary celebrations of the Workers' Party of North Korea. If fully operational, the missile could be capable of carrying multiple nuclear warheads and targeting American cities. North Korea already has missiles capable of striking US cities, but it is the multiple warheads that any missile carries that makes defending against it much harder and more expensive. Many believe the missile gives North Korea a potent bargaining chip in future negotiations with the US. That will depend on whether Donald Trump or Joe Biden wins the election. The government of Russia has denied any involvement in the poisoning of Alexey Navalny, requesting more information from the German government.
