The US nuclear-powered USS Carl Vinson aircraft carrier strike group is also heading to the region. These were showed last Saturday during the anniversary of Kim Il Sung.

Tanks came next through the square - named after Kim's grandfather, the North's founder - followed by the objects of world concern. According to Agence France-Presse, the country then presented a total of 56 missiles, representing 10 different varieties.

Donald Trump recently tweeted that "the problem of North Korea" would be "taken care of".

Kim did not address the rally, which celebrates the 1912 birthday of his grandfather, Kim Il Sung - North Korea's founding ruler - and which is meant to send an unmistakable message to Washington about the isolated, nuclear-armed North's military might.

Trump has also been pressing China to do more to rein in North Korea, and has held out the offer of better trade terms for halting Pyongyang's nuclear program.

The North has warned of a nuclear strike against the United States if provoked. But at the same time, McMaster said on "This Week" on ABC, "it's time for us to undertake all actions we can, short of a military option, to try to resolve this peacefully".

During a fellowship meal after the services, he said the tensions on the Korean peninsula had put into sharp focus the importance of the joint U.S. The country launched a long-range rocket and conducted two nuclear tests a year ago, including its most powerful to date.

Speculation that Pyongyang could conduct a sixth blast in the coming days to coincide with the anniversary has reached fever pitch, with specialist United States website 38North describing its Punggye-ri test site as "primed and ready" and White House officials saying military options were "already being assessed".

Beijing has long opposed dramatic action against the North, fearing the regime's collapse would send a flood of refugees across its borders and leave the U.S. military on its doorstep.

"He is doing the wrong thing", he added of Kim.

"He is making a big mistake", the US President said.

Speaking in Beijing yesterday, China's foreign minister Wang Yi warned the region is facing a "precarious situation" and that a conflict could break out "at any moment".

He said: " This latest missile test just fits into a pattern of provocative, destabilising, and threatening behaviour on the part of the North Korean regime. The military spectacle was organised amid rising tensions between Pyongyang and Washington.

"That is the military deterrent and developing that military deterrent".

Along with goose-stepping soldiers and marching bands, some weapons analysts have said they believe new types of intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBM) were among those on display - while acknowledging that the designs may be in their early stages. "President Trump has made it clear that the patience of the United States and our allies in this region has run out and we want to see change".
