Korean War agreement celebration

People in North and South Korea are marking sixty years since the suspension of hostilities between them. North Korea is celebrating the anniversary of the Armistice Agreement with a show of military strength. The ballistic missiles were on display in a parade through Kim Il Sung Square in the center of Pyongyang.

North describes the signing of the agreement in 1953 as a victory against the United States.

Korean War broke out in 1950 when North Korean troops invaded the South. UN forces, led by the US, backed the South Korean military. China supported the North Korea and  fighting lasted for three years.

North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un stood along with  Chinese Vice President Li Yuanchao on a balcony to watch the anniversary parade.
