NORTH KOREA: North Korea held large-scale rallies in Pyongyang where participants shouted slogans pledging a “war of revenge” to destroy the U.S. as it marked the 73rd anniversary of the outburst of the Korean War, the state media reported on Monday.

The rallies, attended by approximately 120,000 working individuals and students, took place across the capital on Sunday, as reported by the news agency.

Images shared by state media showcased a stadium filled with people holding up placards bearing powerful messages such as “The whole U.S. mainland is within our shooting range” and “The imperialist U.S. is the destroyer of peace.”

Sunday’s anniversary took place amid concerns that Pyongyang will soon launch a second version of its first military spy satellite, aiming to enhance its monitoring capabilities of United States military activities after its previous attempt on May 31 ended in failure.

North Korea now possesses “the strongest absolute weapon to punish the U.S. imperialists,” and the “avengers on this land are burning with the indomitable will to revenge the enemy,” the news media stated.

North Korea, a nuclear-armed nation, has been conducting tests of various weapons, including its largest intercontinental ballistic missile. These activities have escalated tensions with South Korea and the United States, the main ally of South Korea.

In a separate report from the foreign ministry, North Korea stated that the United States was “making desperate efforts to ignite a nuclear war” and accused Washington of deploying strategic assets to the area.

It is important to note that North and South Korea remain technically at war, as their conflict from 1950–53 ended with a truce rather than a formal treaty.
