It ended eight days after the opening of the 8th Labor Party Congress in North Korea. At the end of the party conference, Labor Secretary Kim Jong-un expressed a willingness to strengthen nuclear deterrence and achieve the goals of the new five-year economic plan.
The Labor Newspaper, an agency of the Labor Party, reported that the 8th Party Congress closed the day before on the 13th, and that the party’s Central Committee had adopted a decision on consolidation of business with all approval.
First of all, in his closing speech, Secretary General Kim said, “We must take as an important task to further strengthen our national defense force in mass,” and “we must do everything to develop the strongest military power while strengthening the deterrence of nuclear war.”
He then emphasized, “We must continue to spur the project to become the top and strongest of the People’s Army, and thoroughly prepare it so that it can fulfill its mission and role as the subject of national defense even in any form of threat and injustice.”
Earlier, Secretary General Kim suggested strengthening defense power by referring to individual multiple warhead induction technologies, nuclear propulsion submarines, hypersonic weapons, and the development of tactical nuclear weapons in the party conference’s business summary report on the 9th.
Secretary General Kim also expressed his willingness to be sure to carry out the new five-year plan for national economic development.
General Secretary Kim urged, “Building a socialist economy is the most important revolutionary task we need to focus on today,” and urged, “We must engage in a desperate struggle to carry out the new five-year plan for national economic development.”
General Secretary Kim said, “Under the unified command and management of the state, the party and national power must be put in to restore and strengthen the system and order that moves the economy.” Regardless of which unit, we must take strong sanctions.”
At the same time, instead of the slogan of the 8th Party Congress, the three ideologies were presented as’immigration consolation’,’one heart unity’, and’self-rehabilitation’. In the future, it is interpreted as a means of reinforcing internal discipline by addressing the public sentiment that has been disturbed by the new coronavirus infection (Corona 19).
General Secretary Kim said, “The immigration commendation reflects our Party’s enduring demand for the Party to serve the people as the starting point for the Party’s construction and activities, and to firmly maintain the revolutionary party spirit based on an absolutely unchanging principle. “There are ideological and theoretical viewpoints and policy demands implied.”
Lee Min-wi-cheon means’regarding the people like the sky’, and Kim Il-sung said in a memoir published in April 1992 as “my motto.” In addition, the North Korean socialist constitution states that immigration is the motto of Kim Il-sung and Kim Jong-il.
In addition, general secretary Kim said, “With strong education and discipline on the whole party, nationwide, and people-wide, all kinds of anti-socialism and non-socialist phenomena appearing in all areas of social life, bureaucracy, corruption, tax burdens, and I will have to firmly suppress and manage criminal activities.” This is also interpreted with the intention to thoroughly read the hearts of the people.
The party congress adopted General Secretary Kim’s decision on the consensus of the Party Central Committee’s business with all approval. However, unlike the decision of the 7th convention, it was decided to’distribute in party copy’ without notifying the public. It is pointed out that there will be many very sensitive internal issues.
In addition, North Korea convened the Supreme People’s Assembly to follow up with the Party Congress.
The labor newspaper announced on the 13th that “The Standing Committee of the Supreme People’s Assembly of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea will convene the fourth meeting of the 14th Supreme People’s Assembly in Pyongyang on January 17, Juche110 (2021).”
At the beginning of last month, North Korea announced that it would hold the Supreme People’s Assembly later this month, but it seems that the schedule has been slightly advanced.
The newspaper said, “At the 4th meeting of the 14th Supreme People’s Assembly, we will discuss organizational issues, adoption of laws and regulations related to the five-year plan for national economic development, settlement of national budget execution in 2020, and national budget in 2021.” .
The Supreme People’s Assembly is the highest sovereign body in the North Korean constitution, and it plays a role in revising the constitution and laws, personnel of major state organizations, and approving budget proposals.
On the other hand, it was revealed that the position of Kim Yeo-jeong, the younger sister of General Secretary Kim, who was excluded from the party’s political bureau candidate committee, was demoted from the first vice-president of the Labor Party to vice-president.
On the 13th, the Chosun Central News Agency introduced him as the Vice-Chief of the Labor Party’s Central Committee while delivering a talk to South Korea in the name of Kim Yeo-jung.
In a speech, Vice Minister Kim said, “Now in our capital, the 8th Congress is progressing successfully, and there are many events to celebrate the success of the event soon.” He pointed out that it made a strange sound, saying that the North caught the situation in which the North held a fever ceremony on the late night of the 10th, and that it was under detailed tracking.”
On the 11th, the Joint Chiefs of Staff said that it had captured the situation related to the North Korean party congress, and criticized the ROK-US intelligence authorities for revealing that they were tracking it.
Although Kim Yeo-jeong’s political status and position have been demoted, it is expected that he will continue to command and manage the affairs of South Korea in the future as he has announced a criticism message in his own name.
