Kim Jong Un in talks to expand diplomacy
On Friday, North Korean leader, Kim Jong Un tried to repair inter-Korean ties and promised to expand diplomatic relations through various ways.
He hosted a rare meeting a few days before US President-elect Joe Biden takes office, in which there were negotiations to stop North Korea's nuclear and missile programmes in return for US sanction relief.
According to the official news agency of North Korea, Kim talked about the issue of changing the South Korean affairs "as required by the prevailing situation and the changed times" and discussed foreign policy.
He "declared the general orientation and the policy stand of our party for comprehensively expanding and developing the external relations,"
Kim is said to be more proactive in repairing South Korea and US ties after he successfully stood the intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) tests in 2017 and summits with Trump.
Kim on Wednesday vowed to boost military capabilities to a "much higher level."
The meeting is said to be continued today as it is Kim Jong's birthday and the country has been preparing to celebrate.
Kim is expected to give a public message about his new plans once the meeting is over.
