The meeting is convened to discuss and decide “policy issues of new stage” to meet the demands of the current “important historic period,” KCNA said.

U.S. CIA Director Mike Pompeo visited North Korea last week and met leader Kim Jong Un with whom he formed a “good relationship”, U.S. President Donald Trump said on Wednesday.

South Korea announced on Wednesday that it is considering how to change a decades-old armistice with North Korea into a peace agreement as it prepares for the upcoming North-and-South Korean summit later this month.
