Dear MEL Topic Readers,

North Korea holds parade without ballistic missiles, reports say

Officially the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK), North Korea lies in the northern part of the Korean Peninsula, bordering with South Korea at the 38th parallel north in the south and China and Russia in the north. While the population of North Korea is just around 25 million, about half of South Korea, the estimated number of active military personnel is approximately one million, the forth largest in the world. In a country where there are no effective political elections, human rights or free media, show-off of its military power and commitment and loyalty to the absolute leader is essential to inspire unity and patriotism. Also, the military parade has been one of few opportunities for outsiders to learn about the intentions of the secretive country. Last year, they proudly showed intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs), or their look-alikes in the parade. It was a clear message to the world, especially to the US, that they are capable of attack their enemy with the ultimate weapon.

So, what about this year’s parade after having a top meeting with the US president for denuclearization?

Enjoy reading the article and seeing the video of their annual parade.
