North Korean leader Kim Jong Un led a meeting of top party officials on Monday to discuss issues including the reorganization of some party departments, state media reported, the latest in a series of appearances by Kim this month.

The enlarged meeting of the party central committee’s secretariat marks the fourth meeting that the DPRK leader has joined in June, following a major party plenum, a follow-up meeting with top party secretaries and a three-day meeting with top military officials last week.
