North Korean ruling party Central Committee to hold plenary session this month

Meeting set to discuss and decide "crucial" international and domestic issues, state media says

The Central Committee of North Korea's ruling Workers' Party of Korea (WPK) will hold a plenary meeting in "the latter half" of December, the country's state media reported on Wednesday, in what will represent the second event of its kind this year.

Plans for the meeting, which will see one of the DPRK's top policy-making organs hold its fifth plenary session since the ruling party's 2016 congress, were agreed to by the Presidium of the Political Bureau of the WPK yesterday, according to the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA).
