North Korea is preparing for a massive military parade later this month to mark the 60th anniversary since the end of the Korean War, with a report says that the communist country has mobilized a variety of missiles.
Seoul-based Yonhap news agency reported that satellite imagery has revealed more than 10,000 North Korean soldiers practicing for the parade at Mirim Airport near Pyongyang.
The agency quoted a South Korean military source as saying short and mid-range missiles were seen installed on mobile launchers.
Military officials in Seoul are paying great attention to whether the North will present its newest missiles capable of carrying nuclear warheads in the parade, Yonhap said.
The South’s defense ministry said a military parade has been in preparation for the July 27 anniversary, celebrated by the North as the “Day of Victory”.
“However, we cannot disclose details because they are related to our military secrets”, spokesman Wee Yong-Seob told reporters.
The two Koreas are still technically at war because the 1950-53 Korean War ended with an armistice rather than a peace treaty.
