State media marks eight years of Kim Jong Un military leadership

Falling on the same day as the third day of party plenum, the anniversary sees no major celebratory event

North Korean party daily the Rodong Sinmun and cabinet newspaper Minju Choson on Monday hailed leader Kim Jong Un's military leadership with multiple articles, marking the eighth anniversary of his appointment to the title of "Supreme Commander of the Korean People’s Army."

The anniversary fell on the same day as state media coverage of the second-day session of the long-awaited Workers' Party of Korea (WPK) party plenum, presided over by Kim on Sunday, where he discussed economic and military issues.
