North Korea is expected to hold a military parade through Pyongyang’s Kim Il Sung Square on Oct. 10 in order to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the founding of the Workers’ Party of Korea (WPK).
It’s an unusual and difficult year for the country, especially considering the global COVID-19 pandemic. Therefore, the upcoming parade will be an important reminder of leader Kim Jong Un’s ongoing prioritization of national defense capabilities.
For the outside world, the upcoming parade may show just how far North Korea has qualitatively advanced and quantitatively grown its nuclear forces
