As per news report of BBC, the parade, to mark the armed forces' founding anniversary, also displayed banned intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs). In March, North Korea tested its largest-known ICBM for the first time since 2017. It sparked wide condemnation from the international community. The US also imposed several sanctions on the country after the test. ICBMs, designed for nuclear arms delivery, extend North Korea's strike range as far as the US mainland. The parade also featured submarine-launched ballistic missiles in addition to hypersonic missiles.
