North Korea to hold its Supreme People's Assembly on April 11th ahead of talks with S. Korea, U.S.

북한, 남북회담 북미회담 앞두고 4월 중순께 최고인민회의 개최

Anticipation builds as North Korea is set to hold summits with Seoul and then with Washington.
Ahead of the historic event, Pyongyang plans to hold its Supreme People's Assembly meeting.
Park Ji-won provides a glimpse of what we can expect from that session.
North Korea's state-media reported Thursday,... that the regime's Supreme People's Assembly this year will take place on April 11th in Pyongyang,... ahead of an inter-Korean summit talks projected to take place in late April,... and a possible Pyongyang-Washington talks in May,... drawing attention to whether North Korea will announce any official response regarding a change in its nuclear weapons development program,... or any reconciliatory gestures about improving relations with Seoul and Washington.
South Korea's unification ministry said Thursday... the North's rubber-stamp parliament is expected to discuss similar issues and topics as last year,... regarding the North's yearly budgets and settlements, as well as personnel decisions.
Watchers also expect that although the possibility of making a significant changes about its nuclear status,... prior to the two major summit talks,... looks slim,... more comments on supporting improvements in inter-Korean relations or inter-Korean peace could be made.
Usually held once or twice a year,... the Supreme People's Assembly officially decides on Pyongyang's changes in its legal system, personnel reshuffles and national budget.
Back in 2012, the assembly announced that North Korea was officially a nuclear state,... and last year, Kim Jong-un was named as the first secretary of North Korea's ruling Workers' Party.
