The 17th Enlarged Meeting of the Political Bureau of the Seventh Central Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea and the Fifth Meeting of the Executive Policy Council of the Seventh Central Committee of the WPK took place at the office building of the WPK Central Committee on Tuesday.

Kim Jong Un, chairman of the WPK, chairman of the State Affairs Commission of the DPRK and supreme commander of the armed forces of the DPRK, was present at the meetings.

The meetings were attended by members and alternate members of the Political Bureau including members of the Executive Policy Council of the Party Central Committee.

Present there as observers were leading officials of departments of the Party Central Committee and personnel of relevant fields.

Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un presided over the enlarged meeting of the Politburo.

The meeting had an in-depth discussion of the issues of examining the national emergency anti-epidemic posture to cope with the world health crisis and further improving and intensifying the anti-epidemic work.

It critically assessed a series of defects being revealed in the national emergency anti-epidemic work for checking the inroads of the virulent epidemic, and studied measures to overcome them without delay.

It stressed the need to imbue officials of Party and public and state security organs at all levels once again with the idea of the Party Central Committee on taking intense anti-epidemic measures and to thoroughly maintain a perfect anti-epidemic posture.

Informing the participants of some shortcomings being exposed in the national emergency anti-epidemic work based on data, the Supreme Leader underlined the need for the entire Party and the whole society to take active measures for constantly reinforcing, perfecting and maintaining the anti-epidemic posture and for eliminating a series of defects.

The Political Bureau of the Party Central Committee adopted relevant decisions on the agenda items.

The meeting intensively discussed the issues of taking thorough state emergency measures for the prevention of damage from the strong typhoon which is expected to affect the overall area of the DPRK including South Hwanghae and North and South Phyongan provinces between August 26 and 27.

To completely prevent casualties by typhoon and minimize the damage to crops is a crucial affair which can never be neglected even a moment for our Party bearing responsibility for the destiny of the people and an important matter for successfully wrapping up this year's farming, the Supreme Leader said, setting forth tasks for Party organizations, people's power organs and public security organs at all levels.

He pointed to the need to conduct an intensive information campaign to give officials, Party members and other working people a correct understanding of the importance of the prevention of typhoon damage and the method of dealing with the crisis, and to take immediate measures to prevent the damage in all economic sectors.

The meeting decided to draw up and issue a directive of the Party Central Committee on thoroughly implementing his instructions.

The Politburo enlarged meeting was followed by the meeting of the Executive Policy Council.

The meeting studied and discussed practical issues arising in implementing the decision of the Sixth Plenary Meeting of the Seventh Central Committee of the Party on convening the Eighth Congress of the WPK.

It set up a preparatory committee for the successful Party congress and decided on its work system and the assignment of work for its panels and teams.
