Transcript for Journalists Receive Rare Access on 60th Anniversary of End to Korean War
Meanwhile, north korea usually marking it with a military parade and giving rare access to their secretive leader. Abc's bob woodruff is inside north korea tonight. Reporter: North korea's new leader has traditionally kept his distance, far away, especially from journalists like us. But for the first time, inside this newly renovated museum, kim jong un surprisingly walked right up to us, something his father would never have done. From a few feet away we were given access to him as we might a western politician. Still much of his time has been spent celebrating the 60th anniversary of the end of the korean war, which he claims was a victory over the united states. This is their traditional goosestepping parade, mostly unchanged this year, except for a few additions. I covered this thing so many times before. But this is first time ever, helicopters fly over the street. As for weapons, these were new, nuclear warning symbols on backpacks. What they were was anybody's guess. But some observers suggested that they were meant to convey a threat. It's no secret that most of these demonstrations are to flex his military muscle, but he's not threatened any new missile tests that caused so much global anxiety earlier this year. Bob woodruff, abc news, north korea.
