Video shows North Korean leader chairing politburo meeting

ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION North Korean leader Kim Jong Un chaired a politburo meeting to discuss ways to make progress under the "prevailing tense situation," state media reported on Wednesday (April 10), a day ahead of a plenary session of its ruling party's central committee.

The North's state-run television KRT aired video of Kim and his top aides holding a meeting of Political Bureau of Central Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea (WPK) at the party office building on Tuesday (April 9).

In a meeting on Tuesday, Kim told officials they need to work more responsibly to carry out his strategy in the face of international pressure, according to KCNA.

The plenary session, which occurs regularly, comes in the wake of Kim's second summit with U.S. President Donald Trump in February in Hanoi, where the two leaders failed to make any agreements over North Korea's nuclear weapons program or international sanctions.
