The report also criticized Japan for failing to do more to stimulate domestic demand and thereby increase sales of US and other foreign goods.

The nuclear armed country rolled out its weapons of war through Pyongyang streets as it promised "nuclear justice" in response to any atomic attack as leader Kim Jong-Un mounted a spectacular show of strength.

China warned on Friday: "The U.S. and South Korea and North Korea are engaging in tit for tat, with swords drawn and bows bent, and there have been storm clouds gathering", according to state news agency Xinhua, translated by several media outlets.

Other weaponry exhibit during the parade included tanks, multiple rocket launchers and artillery guns, as well as a solid-fuel missile created to be fired from submarines.

Although the USA trade deficit topped $500 billion in 2016, none of the United States' major trading partners engaged in any currency manipulation in the second half of the year, a new report from the Department of the Treasury said.

It could "beat down enemies with the power of nuclear justice", he said, and was "prepared to respond to an all-out war with an all-out war".

Already strained relations between the United States and North Korea took a turn for the worse this week as Donald Trump took to Twitter to say the U.S. would "solve the problem" of North Korea.

He will himself undertake a 95 day tour by September across the country in which he will meet booth-level workers of the party. The Prime Minister was received at the Biju Patnaik International Airport by the Chief Secretary and DGP of the state.

A massive military parade in Pyongyang celebrated the Day of the Sun, April 15, which is the birthday of North Korea's late founder Kim Il Sung.

The Pukkuksong submarine-launched ballistic missiles (SLBM) were also on parade.

Participants of a mass rally wave flags and shout slogans.

Former Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama took a more diplomatic approach by applying pressure on China, Taiwan and other countries to change their policies during bilateral negotiations and multilateral talks.

"They have an indigenous tank system now so they have more launchers, and they have solid fuel, which means they can launch a lot more of these things in quick succession without having to refuel", Melissa Hanham, an expert at California's James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies said. Also on display was a powerful midrange missile that outside analysts call a "Musudan", and which can potentially reach USA air bases in Guam, as well as a new solid-fuel midrange missile that can be fired from land mobile launchers, making them harder to detect before launch.

Kim Jong Un, a 30-something leader who took power in late 2011 after the death of his father, Kim Jong Il, emphasises nuclear weapons as the foundation of his national defence strategy. Recent satellite imagery suggests the country could conduct another underground nuclear test at any time.

It has carried out five nuclear tests - two of them past year - and multiple missile launches, one of which involved several rockets landing in waters close to Japan last month. South Korea has a spotty record of tracking developments in North Korea, as information about the secretive, authoritarian state is often impossible to confirm.
