The Day of the Sun is one of the main public holidays in North Korea, which marks the birth anniversary of the country's founder Kim Il Sung, grandfather of incumbent Korean leader Kim Jong Un. The joyous celebration included concerts, a flower festival and a biscuit sculpture show.

This year, North Korea has significantly reduced the degree of its usual military rhetoric while celebrating the birth of Kim Il Sung, according to Kyodo News Agency. There were no posters of missiles or militarist slogans, which is believed to be connected with the upcoming talks between North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and South Korean President Moon Jae-in next week, as well as Kim's meeting with US President Donald Trump, scheduled for early June.
