Kim Jong-un urged to address unnamed “flaws”
The head of state announced the worst situation in the country and an unprecedented array of challenges.
North Korean leader Kim Jong-un said that the situation in the DPRK is worse than ever and called on the party cells to correct the deficiencies. It is reported by the Central Telegraph Agency of Korea.
“Implementation of the decisions of the party congress aimed at improving our style of socialist affairs, achieving tangible changes and development in economic work, in improving people’s living standards … even in the worst situation in which we have to overcome an unprecedented multitude of challenges, depends on the role that party cells are playing, “said Kim Jong-un at the sixth conference of secretaries of the cells of the Korean Workers’ Party.
He criticized the lower ranks of the party for unnamed “shortcomings” and called for them to be corrected immediately so that the party would develop steadily and healthy.
The party cells in the DPRK include from five to 30 people. These are the smallest units in the party that supervise the work in factories and elsewhere.
Experts from the Associated Press believe that the impact of the pandemic on the North Korean economy, already suffering from decades of mismanagement, and the US sanctions, put the DPRK leader in the most difficult position during his entire presidency.
Recall, a week earlier it was reported that there is an “exodus of foreigners” in the DPRK due to the pandemic… Diplomatic workers from 12 countries left the country.
In early March, it became known that the DPRK will receive 1.7 million doses of COVID vaccine… Pyongyang did not report any detected cases of COVID-19 infection, but since the beginning of 2020, the DPRK has been implementing tough antiviral measures.
