North Korea staged a massive military parade on Saturday to mark the 105th birthday of late state founder Kim Il-sung in a show of military prowess amid tensions over its nuclear and missile programs.

After inspecting an honour guard, Kim, in a black suit, watched the parade pour into Kim Il-Sung Square, accompanied by top military and party leaders, state television showed in a live broadcast, according to AFP.

North Korean soldiers take part in a parade at Kim Il Sung Square in Pyongyang, Saturday, April 15, 2017.

Last year North Korea, which regularly fires off short-range rockets, launched a long-range missile and carried out two nuclear tests. Pyongyang unveiled what appeared to be a new intercontinental ballistic missile, or ICBM, that South Korean military officials say they've never seen before.

Choe Ryong Hae said to those celebrating "Day of the Sun" - the North state is ready per battle.

Choe Ryong Hae, who some presume as the second-most powerful official in North Korea, said the new United States government under Donald Trump was "creating a war situation" in the Korean Peninsula by dispatching strategic military assets to the region.

A US military official, who requested anonymity to discuss planning, said Washington has no intention of using military force against Pyongyang in response to either a nuclear test or a missile launch.

Choe said President Donald Trump was guilty of "creating a war situation" on the Korean Peninsula by dispatching USA forces to the region.

DPRK stands for the official name of North Korea, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.

US officials admit the situation is tricky.

Kim Jong-un did not speak at the parade but waved from a balcony.

Putin will be asked to convince North Korea to calm down.

USA officials said on Friday that Trump's advisers weighed a range of ideas for how to get North Korea to abandon its nuclear program.

Other weaponry exhibit during the parade included tanks, multiple rocket launchers and artillery guns, as well as a solid-fuel missile created to be fired from submarines.

In a test launch in August past year, the missile flew 500 kilometers (310 miles) after being launched from a submarine and crashed into waters near Japan, prompting Kim Jong Un to declare that North Korea had gained "perfect nuclear-attack capability".

China on Friday while stating that there would be no victor in any war warned a conflict over North Korea could break out "at any moment".

Also on display, analysts said, were a midrange missile powerful enough to reach USA air bases in Guam, and a new solid-fuel midrange missile that could be fired from land mobile launchers, which would also make it hard to detect before it's launched.

On Friday, China's Foreign Minister Wang Yi warned that "conflict could break out at any moment", adding that if war occurred there could be no victor. At the other end of the spectrum, they looked at the notion of accepting North Korea as a nuclear state.

The North regularly launches short-range missiles, but is also developing mid-range and long-range missiles meant to target USA troops in Asia and, eventually, the US mainland.

The country has vowed to permanently seek the dual pursuit of nuclear weapons and economic growth, commonly known as the "byongjin policy". That led North Korea to issue routine threats of attacks on its rivals if they show signs of aggression.
