This year, North Korea has significantly reduced the degree of its usual military rhetoric while celebrating the birth of Kim Il Sung, according to Kyodo News Agency. There were no posters of missiles or militarist slogans, which is believed to be connected with the upcoming talks between North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and South Korean President Moon Jae-in next week, as well as Kim's meeting with US President Donald Trump, scheduled for early June.

Since early in the morning people had been carrying flowers to the monuments of Kim Il Sung and his son and successor Kim Jong Il on Mansu hill in the center of Pyongyang.

On Friday, Kim Jong-un received numerous floral baskets from foreign organizations and heads of states on the occasion of Kim Il Sung's anniversary.
