Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “North Korea Celebrates 73rd Anniversary” – below is their description.

North Korea staged its first military-style parade since Joe Biden became U.S. president, with leader Kim Jong Un presiding over an event where displays of his state’s weaponry were scaled down from previous exhibitions.

There were no ballistic missiles rolled through the streets and national unity was highlighted in the event broadcast Thursday on North Korea’s state television to mark the anniversary of the country’s founding. It took place as the state battles one of its worst food shortages since Kim took power about a decade ago.

Kim didn’t speak but he waived, smiled and gave a thumbs up as thousands of goose-stepping paramilitary and public security forces marched through central Kim Il Sung Square in Pyongyang, fixing their gazes to the balcony where the leader was watching.
