State media reported that Kim Jong Un admitted on Wednesday that his five-year economic plan failed “overwhelmingly” on almost every front.
The leader of North Korea made the remarks at the gathering of the Short Days Workers’ Party, which was last hosted in 2016 when he first planned.
“The strategy was due last year, but it fell short of targets on almost every area,” Kim said at the opening of the remarks to Congress, according to KCNA.
He was accompanied by his top aides, including his sister and senior party official Kim Yo Jong, head of state Choi Rayong Hai and Premier Kim Tok Hoon.
At the last meeting, Kim called for boosting North Korea’s economic growth and expanding domestic sources of energy, including nuclear power. He also outlined the “Byngjin” policy of parallel development of nuclear weapons and the economy.
This year’s meeting is expected to last a few days and Kim is expected to announce changes in leadership, including possibly her sister – who will be in control over the summer questioning Kim’s health It was rumored.
He is also expected to disclose another five-year plan and address relations between North and South and Foreign Policy. The conference was attended by 4,750 delegates and 2,000 spectators and two weeks before President-elect Joe Biden assumed office.
KCNA said it would include “strategic and tactical policies” towards promoting the re-integration of the peninsula and foreign relations.
Despite his failed failures, Kim noted the “miraculous victories” he had achieved in recent years – a reference to the military progress of ballistic missiles capable of arriving at his historic meetings with the US and President Trump.
He thanked party workers for working to create “stable conditions against coronoviruses from beginning to end”.
“He had overcome difficulties in the face of an unprecedentedly long, unique global health crisis,” Kim said.
North Korea has not officially confirmed any coronavirus cases but has reported thousands of “suspected” infections to the World Health Organization.
According to the photo taken by KCNA, no one wore the mask and there was no social rift between the participants.
The dictator of the Kingdom of Hermit has served to bring his cruel image to become a “man of the people” as his country continues to deteriorate – although experts have said they don’t buy into the act.
In October, during the 75th anniversary of the founding of the country, he was seen crying as he thanked the “great people” of North Korea for fighting the COVID-19 crisis.
