N.Korea shows off 'ICBM' during massive parade

North Korea on Saturday displayed a new intercontinental missile, during the grand military parade here to celebrate the 105th birth anniversary of its founder, Kim Il Sung.

Air China has chose to suspend its flights between Beijing and North Korean capital Pyongyang.

He then stepped up to a podium and clapped with senior government officials to address the thousands of soldiers and civilians taking part in the parade at Kim Il Sung Square in Pyongyang, the capital.

The U.S. Pacific Command has already redirected a massive aircraft carrier strike group led by USS Carl Vinson to waters off the Korean Peninsula in a show of force aimed at warning Pyongyang against provocations.

The parade, the annual highlight of North Korea's most important holiday, came amid growing global worries that North Korea may be preparing for its sixth nuclear test or a major missile launch, such as its first flight test of an ICBM capable of reaching USA shores. But the US will respond to North Korea's threats accordingly and won't engage Pyongyang until it "chooses a more peaceful way forward". Amid rising regional tensions, Pyongyang residents have been preparing for North Korea's most important hol.

The official, who wasn't authorized to be quoted by name and demanded anonymity, lamented Pyongyang's "far too common and far too dangerous" provocations, and said Washington would work with global partners to cut the North's government off "from the rest of the world".

"The army and people of the DPRK will as ever courageously counter those who encroach upon the dignity and sovereignty of the DPRK and will always mercilessly ravage all provocative options of the USA with Korean-style toughest counteraction".

China is North Korea's lone major ally but has reportedly spoken out against North Korea's missile and nuclear tests and supported United Nations sanctions. The U.S. and South Korea are also now participating in their largest-ever joint military exercises simulating a war with North Korea. It was the first time North Korea had shown the missiles, which have a range of more than 1,000 km (600 miles), at a military parade.

North Korea warned the United States to end its military hysteria today or face retaliation as a USA aircraft carrier group steamed toward the region amid fears the North may conduct a sixth nuclear weapons test.

The parade, an elaborate display of the state's vast power, involves tens of thousands of participants, from goose-stepping soldiers to crowds of civilians who have spent weeks perfecting their ability to wave plastic flowers in unison.

Trump extends private-sector health care program for vets
In the statement Monday, Poonam Alaigh, acting VA under secretary for health, said the VA was "focused on process improvements". Trump called the law a good start but acknowledged "there is still much work to do".

China is also urging dialogue with North Korea in place of any military options.

State television showed what appeared to be several KN-08 and KN-14 missiles rolled out on trucks at the parade. And the US military on April 13 dropped the biggest non-nuclear bomb it possesses on Afghanistan, targeting a complex used by the Islamic State of Iraq and Levant (ISIL), in another move seen as a warning is not afraid to use force.

He added that North Korea will keep building up its nuclear arsenal in "quality and quantity" and said Pyongyang is ready to go to war if that's what Trump wants.

"We will die for you", they yelled.

It's also conducted engine tests that analysts say could potentially power a long-range missile.

But in an interview with the Associated Press on Friday, North Korean Vice Foreign Minister Han Song Ryol said that the country is "fully prepared to handle" whatever comes from the United States.

"We don't think about other things, we just live in our belief that we will win as long as our Supreme Leader is with us", Ho said, referring to Kim Jong Un.

Trump has repeatedly said he will prevent Pyongyang from its goal of developing a nuclear-tipped ballistic missile capable of reaching the mainland United States.

In his annual New Year's address, Kim said that the country's preparations for an ICBM launch have "reached the final stage". Recent satellite imagery suggests the country could conduct another underground nuclear test at any time.

The North conducted two such tests a year ago alone.
