The reason why Kim Jong-un didn’t make a speech at the 9/9 military parade… “Focus on celebrating the 10th year of Yeongdo”

The Rodong Sinmun, the official newspaper of the Workers’ Party of North Korea, reported on the 9th that a military parade was held to commemorate the 73rd anniversary of the establishment of the regime. The newspaper reported that at 00:00 on the 9th, while the welcome song was sounding, General Secretary Kim Jong-un came out to the commentary of the Parade Square, and General Secretary Kim waved his hand toward the soldiers and the participants of the celebration and sent a warm greeting to all the people in return.

An insider testified that North Korea focused on celebrating the 10th anniversary of Chairman Kim Jong-un’s 10th year in power at this 9/9 (government establishment day) commemorative event. It is said that Chairman Kim did not plan his speech in the first place because he is in a position to receive congratulations.

North Korea holds a relatively grandiose ceremony, such as a military parade, on the national holiday of the so-called ‘breaking year’, which ends in 5 or 0. This year is the 73rd anniversary of the establishment of the North Korean regime, which is not a good year to hold a military parade.

Nevertheless, a military-peasant Red Guard and Social Security Forces mobilizing 7,000 to 8,000 people to hold a military parade is meaningful to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Chairman Kim, an insider inside North Korea explained on the 13th.

Chairman Kim became North Korea’s supreme leader in 2012, and next year will be the 10th anniversary of his rule. However, next year will be the 110th anniversary of the Day of the Sun (April 15, Kim Il-sung’s birthday) and the 80th anniversary of the Day of the Light (February 16, Kim Jong-il’s birthday).

In fact, as a result of our coverage, the North Korean authorities have already begun preparations to hold the largest military parade in history with about 38,000 people in celebration of the 110th anniversary of the Day of the Sun next year. This is an increase of 15,000 people from the military parade at the 75th anniversary of the founding of the party on October 10, last year, when the largest number of people ever participated.

As such, as the focus is on the celebration of the Day of the Sun and the Holy Day of Gwangmyeong next year, the sources claim that there are concerns that the meaning of the celebration of Chairman Kim’s 10th anniversary may be somewhat fading. In response, North Korea held an event to commemorate the 73rd anniversary of the Sept.

The reason why the party’s organizing secretary Cho Yong-won and Party secretary Ri Il-hwan gave the speech usually shows that the ceremony was planned and carried out under the leadership of the party. In particular, it is said that Chairman Kim is the one receiving the congratulations, so his speech was not considered even in the first planning stage of the event.

In fact, in his speech, Secretary Lee said, “The patriotic enthusiasm of the ten million people to endlessly glorify the glory of the republic, which has been defended and shaken by noble struggle under the leadership of Comrade Kim Jong-un, is reaching the sky. We can never stop the heroic advance of our country and our people who are leading the way toward a new victory in the revolution.”

On the other hand, it is known that the reason the military parade was held with a focus on social safety, which is equivalent to the Labor and Peasant Red Guards, which is a reserve force, and our police, was related to a decrease in the number of the People’s Army.

The number of recruits (recruiters) is decreasing every year due to the population decline, and North Korea has shortened the mandatory service period of its soldiers to put them into production. In addition, North Korea is implementing measures to increase the size of the strategic military units that strategically operate ballistic missiles and reduce the general administration and infantry forces.

For this reason, the necessity of arming all the people in North Korea to reinforce the fighting force is rising.

In fact, Secretary Lee also said in his speech, “We will strengthen the People’s Army in every way, raise the level of Juche and modernization of the defense industry to a high level, and continue to spur the struggle for the implementation of the Party’s policy of arming all the people and fortification of the whole country, so as to continuously improve our national defense capabilities. ” he mentioned.

In this regard, the source said, “The armament of all citizens and the fortification of the whole country are likely to be emphasized more in the future.
