North Korean leader Kim Jong-un appeared emotional while speaking at a massive military parade in Pyongyang early on Saturday, marking the 75th anniversary of the Workers’ Party, the country's ruling party.
Before shedding a few tears, he thanked volunteers who responded to the recent flooding in the country.
Tens of thousands of spectators loudly welcomed the leader as he appeared from a building as the clock struck midnight.
It’s unusual for North Korea to hold a military parade in the middle of the night, although such conditions may provide benefits in protecting sensitive information about weapons that were rolled out.
This week’s festivities are designed as a major event to glorify Kim Jong-un’s achievements as leader of North Korea.
