China urges United States and North Korea to refrain from provoking each other

But while the isolated country's newest weapons rolled through the streets of the capital during the event, North Korea did not carry out a nuclear test or ballistic missile launch to commemorate Kim Il Sung.

China also has grown increasingly frustrated with the refusal of Kim Jong Un's regime to heed its admonitions, and in February cut off imports of North Korean coal that provide Pyongyang with a crucial source of foreign currency.

The missiles were shown during the grand celebrations marking the 105th birth anniversary of DPRK founder Kim Il Sung, which was watched by DPRK supreme leader Kim Jong Un from a high review stand on the west side of the Kim Il Sung Square in central Pyongyang.

North Korea recently test-fired four ballistic missiles and claims it's close to perfecting an intercontinental ballistic missile and nuclear warhead capable of reaching the USA mainland.

"North Korea must have felt the shock wave travelling all the way from Afghanistan", the Communist party-controlled newspaper said in an editorial.

China quickly responded to the new jousting in the nuclear hotspot, saying there will be no victor in a war between the USA and North Korea.

"The United States and South Korea and North Korea are engaging in tit for tat, with swords drawn and bows bent", Wang said after a meeting with visiting French Foreign Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault, Xinhua reported. Also on display was a new generation of an intermediate-range missile, called the Pukguksong-2, as well as a new version of a submarine-launched ballistic missile.

Weapons analysts said they believed some of the missiles on display were new types of intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBM).

Under the clear sky and to the sound of the military band, dozens of military vehicles and an entire army of soldiers passed through the country's biggest square named in honor of Kim Il-sung, whose 105th birthday is being celebrated on Saturday.

As tensions heighten in the peninsula, China's foreign minister, Wang Yi, warned that confrontation between the U.S. and North Korea had escalated to such a point that "a military conflict may start at any moment".

"If the United States wages reckless provocation against us, our revolutionary power will instantly counter with annihilating strike, and we will respond to all-out war with all-out war and to nuclear war with our style of nuclear strike warfare", Choe was quoted by The Telegraph as saying.

Other senior officials joining Kim at the podium included Kim Won Hong, who the South Korean government had said earlier this year was sacked from his job as state security minister, presumably over corruption. It started about two hours ago, and is being attended by the current leader and grandson, Kim Jong-un, himself. "We can see from today that North Korea's missile technology has advanced far more than we had previously thought".
