North Korea marks 66th anniversary of its founding

Posted on by

Crowds of people went to pay their respects at the giant statues of Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il on top of Pyongyang’s Mansu Hill in celebrations that mark 66 years since the founding of the country.

Citizens of North Korea are expected to pay their respects to their country’s former leaders on every major state anniversary. This year’s anniversary is not a big round number, so there are no large-scale commemorative events planned.

North Korea has said that it is preparing for another huge event in October 2015, which will mark the 70th anniversary of the founding of the ruling Workers’ Party.
