Soldiers breaking stones and a very entertained Kim Jong Un: These bizarre images were shown on North Korean television earlier this week. At the same time, the ruler tightened the tone against South Korea and the USA.
On the occasion of the 76th anniversary of the founding of the ruling Communist Party, the North Korean army organized a large arms exhibition. As a guest of honor there was also ruler Kim Jong Un on Monday. He was sitting in the audience at a martial arts demonstration by soldiers – and obviously had fun there, as pictures on state television show.
The ruler of North Korea used a speech at the exhibition for clear criticism of the USA. The United States was “primarily to blame” for the conflict on the Korean peninsula. The situation on the Korean peninsula has been tense for a long time, and North and South Korea are currently engaged in an arms race. Last week, however, they re-established their direct telephone connection that North Korea had cut months earlier.
How ruler Kim Jong Un enjoyed himself despite the tense situation at the armaments exhibition on the celebratory founding day, show the recordings here or in the video above.
