South Korea has displayed a domestically-built missile capable of hitting all parts of North Korea and other sophisticated weapons at the country's biggest Armed Forces Day ceremony in a decade.
Among the weapons featured was a Hyunmu-3 cruise missile with a range of 1,000 kilometers , which South Korea has developed in recent years. It was the first time the missile was publicly shown.
President Park Geun-hye said in a speech that South Korea must bolster national defense to neutralize North Korea's nuclear and missile threats.
Later Tuesday, South Korea will conduct a military parade through Seoul streets for the first time since 2008.
