North Korean leader attends military parade with daughter, doesn’t give speech

State media report makes no mention of Kim Jong Un messages to US or ROK at event featuring tactical nukes and ICBMs

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un attended a military parade in Pyongyang on Wednesday featuring the country’s largest nuclear missiles, with his daughter joining him on the viewing stand, according to state media.

Rodong Sinmun photos showed more than a dozen intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs), including what appeared to be new solid-fuel ICBMs, and other weaponry paraded through Kim Il Sung Square as fireworks exploded in the skies above. But state media coverage did not show Kim making any speeches at the event to mark the 75th anniversary of the Korean People’s Army (KPA).
