Military parade to mark N. Korea's 75th anniversary of ruling Workers' Party Updated: 2020-10-10 09:27:03 KST

North Korea celebrates October 10th as the anniversary of the ruling Workers' Party.
It's reported the regime may hold a military parade to celebrate the occasion, but no movement yet.
Our Kim Dami is standing by on the line.
Dami, if the parade did happen, when would it take place?
Right Daniel, all eyes are now on whether the North will hold a military parade to mark its special day, but no specific details, including time, are known.
If it does take place, it will be the first of its kind since September 2018 when the regime celebrated the 70th anniversary of its founding.
Just like the past two military parades, Saturday's event is expected to be recorded, not live.
Even during the COVID-19 pandemic, the regime has been actively preparing for the day.
Earlier this month, the U.S.-based North Korea-monitoring website 38 North released satellite imagery showing signs of the North's rehearsals for the parade.
And the North tends to celebrate every fifth or tenth anniversary with larger-scale events like missile launches and troop parades.
So it's highly likely that the communist regime will showcase new strategic weapons such as an intercontinental ballistic missile or a submarine-launched ballistic missile.
Watchers note that North Korean leader Kim Jong-un may deliver a speech to motivate and encourage the North Korean people struggling due to economic difficulties and the COVID-19 pandemic.
Plus, ahead of the U.S. November election, Kim may also send messages to Washington and Seoul.
That's all from me. Back to you, Daniel.
