At mass rally, North Koreans pledge support for country’s new “offensive” line

Officials promise "heavy blow" to DPRK's enemies in the wake of last week's plenary meeting

Thousands of North Koreans gathered in central Pyongyang on Sunday, the country's state media reported, in a major rally in which citizens were reported to have offered their support to the country's new more offensive line towards the U.S.

In a dispatch released Sunday, the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) said that top officials and Pyongyang residents had hailed decisions handed down by leader Kim Jong Un at last week's ruling party plenum and promised to work towards "bringing about prosperity on the strength of self-reliance and self-sustenance."
