The Political Bureau of the Central Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea (WPK) convened its 6 th Meeting of the 8 th Central Committee at the office building of the Party Central Committee on January 19 to discuss and decide immediate work and important policy issues of the Party and the state.

Kim Jong Un , General Secretary of the WPK, was present at the meeting.

Attending the meeting were members of the Presidium of the Political Bureau of the C.C., WPK and members and alternate members of the Political Bureau of the Party Central Committee.

Respected Comrade Kim Jong Un presided over the meeting.

The meeting first discussed the issue of celebrating with splendor the 110 th birth anniversary of President Kim Il Sung and the 80 th birth anniversary of Chairman Kim Jong Il (the Day of the Sun and the Day of the Shining Star).

To most auspiciously and significantly celebrate the Day of the Sun and the Day of the Shining Star this significant year is our bounden duty and moral obligation as befit the descendants of the President and soldiers and disciples of the Chairman, which is also of the boundless honor and pride of our people who have struggled all along, remaining faithful to the cause of the President and the Chairman.

No holidays are more significant than the Day of the Sun and the Day of the Shining Star for our Party and people struggling to carry forward and accomplish the revolutionary cause of the President and the Chairman under the uplifted banner of great Kimilsungism-Kimjongilism. The very existence of our dignified Party and state is unthinkable apart from the immortal exploits performed by the President and the Chairman which permeated the glorious course of the Korean revolution.

The meeting called for rendering the historic Day of the Sun and the Day of the Shining Star of this year important political occasions of cementing yet further the unwavering faith of our people to carry forward to completion the revolutionary cause of Juche pioneered and led by the President and the Chairman under the guidance of the Party, and also of demonstrating before the world the high enthusiasm and revolutionary mettle of all the Party members and other people to glorify the decade of Juche 110 as the era of victors bringing about the overall development of our style of socialism.

The Political Bureau of the Party Central Committee gave detailed assignments to the Party and state organs to celebrate with splendor the 110 th birth anniversary of the President and the 80 th birth anniversary of the Chairman as the great festivals of victory and glory to shine long in the annals of the country.

The meeting adopted a resolution of the Political Bureau of the WPK Central Committee: "On celebrating with splendor the 110 th birth anniversary of the Great Leader Comrade Kim Il Sung and the 80 th birth anniversary of the Great Leader Comrade Kim Jong Il ".

The meeting heard a report analyzing the current situation around the Korean peninsula and a series of international issues, and discussed the direction for future countermeasures against the U.S.

Also communicated to the participants were the recent reckless moves of the U.S. picking on our state unfairly over the legitimate exercise of its sovereignty.

In the last few years alone after the DPRK-U.S. summits, the U.S. conducted hundreds of joint war drills which it committed itself to halting, and it also conducted tests of all kinds of strategic weapons, while shipping ultra-modern means of attack into south Korea and bringing nuclear strategic weapons into the region around the Korean peninsula, giving a grave threat to the security of our state.

The U.S.  also committed the rash act of adopting unilateral sanctions for over 20 times while vilifying and slandering our state viciously. Especially, the current U.S. administration is bent on its attempts to deprive the DPRK of its right to self-defense.

All the above facts clearly show once again that the hostile policy towards the DPRK will continue to exist in the future, too, so long as there exists the hostile entity of the U.S. imperialism.

Assessing that the hostile policy and military threat by the U.S. have reached a danger line that cannot be overlooked any more despite our sincere efforts to maintain the general trend of easing tension on the Korean peninsula since the DPRK-U.S. summit in Singapore, and unanimously recognizing the need to make yet more thorough preparations for a prolonged confrontation with U.S. imperialism, the Political Bureau of the Central Committee of the WPK concluded that we switch over to a practical action to bolster up our physical strength for defending the dignity, sovereign rights and interests of our state in a more reliable and credible manner.

The meeting of the Political Bureau reassigned the policy tasks for the national defence to immediately bolster up more powerful physical means which can effectively control the hostile moves of the U.S. against the DPRK that are getting ever more serious day by day. It gave an instruction to the sector concerned to make an overall reconsideration of the confidence-building measures that we have taken on our own initiative and on a prior basis and to promptly examine the issue of restarting all temporarily-suspended activities.

The decision of the meeting is a timely and just step to reliably guarantee the existence and sovereign rights of our state in view of the urgent requirement of development of the revolution and under the present circumstances.

The meeting fully demonstrated the revolutionary will and indomitable spirit of the WPK to hold in high esteem President Kim Il Sung and Chairman Kim Jong Il , the eternal sun of Juche and sacred image of socialist Korea, forever and to build an independent and dignified powerful country on this land without fail.
