North Korean leader chairs party meeting
North Korea’s state-run television KRT on Sunday (October 8) released still photographs of leader Kim Jong Un holding a meeting with party officials in Pyongyang ahead of the 72nd anniversary of the founding of its Workers’ Party.
Kim said the nuclear weapons were “a precious fruition borne by its people’s bloody struggle for defending the destiny and sovereignty of the country from the nuclear threats of the U.S.” during the Second Plenum of the 7th Central Committee of Workers’ Party of Korea (WPK) on Saturday (October 7), KRT said.
KRT also added that current issues and organizational matter were discussed during the meeting and Kim’s younger sister Yo Jong was elected as an alternative member of the Political Bureaus of the Party Central Committee.
KRT also aired a video of Kim and the party officials paying tribute to late leaders at their mausoleum. North Korea marks the party’s founding anniversary on Tuesday (October 10).
