NHK and all national papers posted articles online on a Korean Central News Agency report on the third day of the conference of the Central Committee of the Workers’ Party of Korea in Pyongyang, during which Chairman Kim allegedly said the party leadership has decided to prepare for “another, arduous, and protracted struggle” so as to enable his people to “live well.” The media outlets conjectured that the DPRK leader suggested with this remark that he will not compromise at all in the denuclearization talks with the U.S.and hence urged his nation to prepare for the continuation of international sanctions. In his “comprehensive policy remarks,” Kim also reportedly announced his intention to take “positive and offensive political, diplomatic and military countermeasures for firmly preserving the sovereignty and security of the country.” He also reiterated his commitment to “removing all challenges and difficulties that stand in the way of our progress.” According to the reports, the meeting is still going on today.
