North Korea’s Kim Jong-Un in First Major Public Speech
He offered respects to grandfather Kim Il-sung and late father Kim Jong-il.
Mr Kim praised the “military first” doctrine and said the time his nation could be threatened was “forever over”.
There was also a huge military parade in the main square which unveiled what appeared to be a large new missile - two days after a failed rocket launch.
The launch was condemned by the international community, amid concern that it was a covert test of long-range missile technology.
