Kim Jong Un celebrates successful military parade with dozens of group photos

State media praises ‘modernity’ of North Korea’s armed forces as well as state TV’s ‘highest level’ parade coverage

Commanders and soldiers who participated in North Korea’s massive military parade this week gathered again in Kim Il Sung Square to celebrate the successful execution of the event by taking group photos with the North Korean leader, according to state media.

Kim Jong Un posed for dozens of photos with the various military units that marched through the square on Monday. The parade, which celebrated the 90th anniversary of the Korean People’s Army (KPA), featured intercontinental ballistic missiles, hypersonic glide vehicles and what appeared to be a new short-range solid fuel missile.
