THREATS FROM NORTH KOREA: N.Korea may reshuffle party leadership


North Korea's ruling Workers' Party is expected to reshuffle its party's leadership and amendments to the party rules at its first congress in 36 years.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un reported to party delegates on Sunday, the third-day of the gathering, on work being carried out by the party's central committee. The N. Korean leader stressed that the country will pursue nuclear and missile development as a "responsible" nuclear power. His report was unanimously adopted by the delegates.

The assembly is expected to decide on leadership positions and amendments to the party rules on Monday, the fourth day of the congress. Kim Jong un is expected to be elected to the party's top post.

Attention is focused on whether Kim will be reelected to his current post of First Secretary of the ruling party which was newly established four years ago. He may assume the role as head of the party's central committee which is being reinstated for the first time in five decades.
