Pyongyang, January 1 (KCNA) -- The 5th Plenary Meeting of the 7th Central Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea was held at the headquarters building of the WPK Central Committee from December 28 to 31, Juche 108 (2019).

Kim Jong Un, chairman of the Workers' Party of Korea, guided the plenary meeting.

Attending the meeting were members and alternate members of the C.C., WPK and members of the Central Auditing Commission of the WPK.

Present as observers were officials of the WPK Central Committee, officials of ministries and national institutions, chairpersons of the provincial people's committees, chairpersons of the provincial rural economy committees, chairpersons of the city and county party committees and officials of major fields and units and the organs of the armed forces.

Kim Jong Un presided over the meeting upon authorization of the Political Bureau of the C.C., WPK.

The plenary meeting dealt with the following agenda items:



  • On the orientation of our immediate struggle under the present internal and external situation
  • On an organizational matter
  • On modifying and supplementing the collection of the slogans set forth by the Party Central Committee
  • On celebrating the 75th founding anniversary of the WPK with splendour.

  • The first agenda was discussed.

    Kim Jong Un made a report on the first agenda.



    Saying that the period of the past eight months since the 4th Plenary Meeting of the 7th Central Committee of the WPK was a continuity of great intensified struggle and courageous advance, he referred to the fact that the WPK has always established and maintained correct internal and external political lines centered on the urgent demand, rights and interests of our people and the sovereignty and security of the state and has constantly struggled for them.

    He noted that the Party Central Committee convened the present plenary meeting for the purpose of comprehensively and deeply analyzing and assessing the subjective and objective obstacles and difficulties faced in the course of the great and dynamic advance of our revolution and of taking a decisive measure for further promoting the socialist construction.

    Kim Jong Un advanced the revolutionary line on launching an offensive for frontal breakthrough as required by the present situation and the developing revolution.

    Noting that our Juche-based might with self-sufficiency and self-reliance as the motive power has been further strengthened in the tense struggle for carrying out the decision of the 4th Plenary Meeting of the 7th Central Committee of the WPK, he referred to the fact that our state and people greatly demonstrated strong spirit and tremendous potential while proudly advancing and leaping in the difficult situation true to the appeal of the Party to open up a great period of surge in the socialist construction under the uplifted banner of self-reliance.

    He said that the challenges faced by us for the past several months were harsh and dangerous, which others would not withstand even a single day but give up, but no difficulties can ever stop or delay the rush of our people advancing as an integral whole, undaunted by whatever hardships.

    He added that great successes have ceaselessly been made in bolstering the strength of the state and in increasing defence capabilities.



    He noted that the huge and complicated work of developing the ultra-modern weapon system possessed only by the countries with advanced defence science and technology presupposed our own innovative solutions without anyone's help, and all the research tasks were perfectly carried out by the driving force, i.e. our reliable scientists, designers and workers in the field of the munitions industry.

    This means a great victory, and our possession of promising strategic weapons systems planned by the Party serves as a great event in developing the armed forces of the Republic and defending and guaranteeing our sovereignty and right to existence, he noted.

    He stressed that such a leap in developing ultra-modern national defence science would make our great military and technical power irreversible, greatly promote the increase of our great national power, raise the power of putting the political situation around us under control and give the enemies uneasiness and horror.

    In the future, the more the US stalls for time and hesitates in the settlement of DPRK-US relations, the more helpless it will find itself before the might of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, which is getting stronger beyond prediction, and the deeper it will fall into an impasse, he noted.

    He referred to a series of successes achieved in the economic construction.
