Kim Jong further apologised for not able to improve the lives of North Koreans. Thousands of his followers could be seen listening to him carefully, while shedding tears as their chief spoke.
He further stated that his government would continue to strengthen self-defensive war prevention to combat, control and manage all dangerous attempts and threatening acts including nuclear attacks from enemies. A long range ballistic missile was introduced after a two-year hiatus.
The large-scale function was followed by the mass games, that was revived in 2018 after a five-year gap.
