North Korean plenum to extend for fourth day to consider an “important document”

Though detail sparse from Monday's proceedings, indicators suggest hardline policy on the cards

North Korea's ongoing extraordinary party Plenary Meeting will go on for a fourth day to consider an "important document," official state media indicated on Tuesday, implying the outcome of the event may be contained within Kim Jong Un's New Year's Speech.

News of the extension was contained in a report which described Kim overseeing discussion of "diplomatic and military countermeasures," for preserving the country's sovereignty and security among other priorities.
