N. Korean Party Congress preparations include larger torch rally

North Korean media has mentioned the term 'congress' 741 times since start of the year

Preparations are underway for further large-scale celebrations in North Korea to celebrate the Seventh Workers’ Party Congress, according to travel operators recently returned from the DPRK’s capital.

The celebrations will include a torch parade likely larger than the headline-grabbing event which took place in October, commemorating the 70th anniversary of the foundation of the Workers’ Party.
