Japan says it must remain on alert over N. Korea

"We will respond to an all-out war with an all-out war and a nuclear war with our style of a nuclear attack", Choe said during the parade in the North Korean capital of Pyongyang, which was also attended by Kim Jong Un.

NBC News reported earlier that the USA has bombers ready to attack North Korea from Guam if necessary, the USS Carl Vinson aircraft carrier has been diverted to the Korean Peninsula, and has positioned a pair of destroyers capable of launching Tomahawk missiles into the communist country at a moment's notice.

Kim has overseen three nuclear tests and a string of missile and rocket launches since taking over after the death of his father, dictator Kim Jong Il, in late 2011.

Goose-stepping soldiers and marching bands filled the square, next to the Taedonggang River that flows through Pyongyang, in the hazy spring sunshine as tanks, multiple launch rocket systems and other weapons waited to parade.

He passed the leadership to his son, Kim Jong Il, who in turn passed it to Kim Jong Un.

North Korea says it's created a nuclear weapon small enough to mount on a missile, though many experts dispute that claim. China is North Korea's only major ally.

The White House believes that Sunday's test involved a medium-range ballistic missile that failed within 4-5 seconds after launch, and that it did not involve an intercontinental ballistic missile, the adviser said.

The United States has recently stated several times that they are considering all possible options for action in relation to the DPRK.

North Korea has said it had developed and would launch a missile that could strike mainland United States, but experts doubt this.

"It is still early days for these missile designs". This matters because while North Korea regularly launches short-range missiles, it is also developing mid-range and long-range missiles meant to target USA troops in Asia and, eventually, the US mainland. With North Korea making preparations for a military demonstration on the anniversary of the country's founder, unilateral action may come sooner rather than later.

"Ryomyong Street is an accomplishment that the North wants to promote on the economic front", said an official at Seoul's unification ministry.

He said: "It suggests a commitment to this programme".

North Korea is working to develop a nuclear missile that can strike the United States.

Should Kim Jong Un send his soldiers over the DMZ, they would be met by an American military machine with a lethal arsenal of conventional weapons, according to GlobalSecurity.org.

State news agency KCNA said the Trump administration's "serious military hysteria" had reached a "dangerous phase that can no longer be overlooked".

Ten members of "Fighters for a Free North Korea" flew 300-thousand leaflets in large balloons from a mountain in Gimpo City, Gyeonggi Province at 5 a.m.

U.S. vice-president Mike Pence travels to South Korea today on a long-planned 10-day trip to Asia. "I have great confidence that China will properly deal with North Korea".

"It would be nice if the bomb could frighten Pyongyang, but its actual impact may just be the opposite", it said in an editorial.

But it is also meant to send an unmistakable message to Washington, Seoul, Tokyo and other capitals about the isolated, nuclear-armed North s military might.

This footage shows North Koreans celebrating the 105th anniversary of the country's late founder's birth with a massive parade Saturday.

KCNA was gushing in its praise of Kim Il-Sung, recalling the time he met former U.S. president Jimmy Carter in 1994.
