Leader of north korea Kim Jong Un Addressing thousands of grassroots workers of his ruling party at a large political conference in Pyongyang, he believed that his country was going through a ‘very bad phase’. Experts believe that a decade of Kim’s rule in North Korea is nearing completion and her already unstable economy is further strained by the lockdown and US sanctions imposed to prevent the spread of the Corona virus.
North Korea’s official Korean Central News Agency said Kim made these comments at a meeting of the branch secretaries of the Workers’ Party on Tuesday. Kim said, “Improving people’s lives in the worst case scenario so far depends on the role played by the branches, the party’s grassroots organizations.” In this situation, we have to overcome many unprecedented challenges.
He also requested party members to implement decisions taken in Congress in January when he called for increasing nuclear capacity despite US pressure and announced a new five-year national development plan. Earlier, Kim Jong Un expressed his displeasure over the performance of his cabinet and removed a senior finance officer from the service. Kim alleged that these officials did not offer any new ideas to bring back the country’s economy going through a crisis.
According to Friday’s news by state-run media KCNA, Kim was hopeful that her diplomacy to remove US sanctions about nuclear programs would work, but she stayed back. At the same time, the economy is going through a crisis due to the closure of borders due to Kovid-19 epidemic and crop failure in natural calamity.
