The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) held a mass rally here Sunday to mark the Day of Anti-U.S. Struggle.

Senior members of the ruling Workers’ Party of Korea and high-level government officials joined representatives from all walks of life to angrily denounce the United States for starting the Korean War on June 25, 1950. They also held a public procession following the rally.

Speakers at the event accused the United States of using “all kinds of the cruelest methods and means to commit an unheard-of holocaust and vandalism” and making “wholesale use of germ and chemical weapons prohibited by international law,” according to the official Korean Central News Agency (KCNA).
