With North Korea’s 70th Foundation Day coming up on September 9th,… satellite imagery shows the regime is set to stage another military parade.
This comes as worries mount that diplomatic efforts on its denuclearization are stalling.
Lee Seung-jae reports.
Parades have long been a way for North Korea to show off its military power to the world.
Come September 9th,… Pyongyang will host a number of major events for the 70th anniversary of the regime’s founding,… including a military parade.
Based on commercial satellite imagery gathered by Planet Labs Inc., analysts say the parade is likely to be very similar to one staged in February.
But 38 North,… a U.S. think tank devoted to analyzing North Korea,… thinks otherwise.
According to their analysis of satellite photos,… North Korea has been readying for the parade since July,… and the event is expected to be one of the largest,… given the scale of preparation.
Images show some 500 trucks used to transport troops parked outside a parade formation.
It also found the shelters for troops are larger than the ones used in the preparation for the military parade to mark the 70th anniversary of the North Korean Army in February.
Satellite images dated August 22nd show the Mirim Parade Training Ground full of tanks, self-propelled artillery, infantry carriers, anti-aircraft missiles, and rocket launchers.
Other possible weapons to be showcased include coastal defense cruise missiles, as well as at least six solid-fuel, short-range ballistic missiles possibly of a type first seen in February.
However, analysts say there are no signs of ICBMs yet.
They added that, if ICBMs or other large missiles are present,… they would likely remain hidden under cover in heavy equipment storage areas until the day of the parade.
The parade is also expected to draw visits by foreign delegations,… and for the first time in five years,… a massive choreographed performance known as the “Mass Games”.

With North Korean leader Kim Jong-un set for his summits with the South Korean and American presidents in the coming weeks,… the regime’s rubber-stamp parliament is set to hold a key meeting on Wednesday.
Watchers expect the meeting to provide hints about the message North Korea wants to send during those summits.
Lee Seung-jae reports.
What messages could North Korea send to South Korea and the U.S. ahead of its summits with them?
With North Korea’s rubber-stamp parliament set to hold the sixth session of its 13th Supreme People’s Assembly on Wednesday…. that question may just be answered.
The Supreme People’s Assembly is the highest organ of state power under the North’s Constitution that rubber-stamps decisions by the ruling Workers’ Party.
Its plenary session — held every April — mainly deals with budget issues and personnel reshuffles.
However, this year’s meeting is getting more attention,… due to the possibility the isolated state may send a message to the outside world ahead of the summits,… during what’s usually an internal political event.
A local expert says the meeting could be used to back Kim Jong-un’s willingness to improve ties with the South or even seek a peace regime and the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.
The North has previously used its meetings to clarify its stance on its nuclear programs.
In particular,… at a parliamentary meeting in April 2012,… the North stipulated in the preamble of its Constitution that the country is a nuclear state.
In the following year,… the Assembly adopted a law codifying its possession of nuclear weapons for self-defense,… at the same time consolidating its status as a nuclear weapons state.
The meeting will also be highlighted by personnel reshuffles,… as experts say the regime is likely to change officials at key posts of the State Affairs Commission,… and other organs to reflect the latest changes in the makeup of cabinet and military officials.
Among the notable changes,… North Korea may replace Kim Yong-nam, the 90-year-old president of SPA Presidium and the nominal head of state,… in order to seek active diplomacy to improve relations with Seoul and Washington.
Meanwhile, according to the North’s state-run media,… Kim Jong-un has acknowledged the prospect of talks with Washington,… in his first official mention of the planned summit with President Trump.
The Korean Central News Agency also said Kim delivered a report “on the development of the recent situation on the Korean Peninsula”,… which includes the inter-Korean summit on April 27th.
Observers hope the North’s recent openness may be a prelude to finally achieving peace on the Korean Peninsula,… as the world continues to watch the nation’s every move.
