PYONGYANG, May 6. /TASS /. Foreign journalists were not allowed into the conference hall where the VII congress of the Workers’ Party of Korea got underway on Friday without providing explanations. The forum is held behind closed doors.
Media representatives from the U.S., Japan, Spain, Finland and some other countries invited for the occasion were only allowed to communicate freely with the passers-by and cameramen - to film near the impressive building of the Palace of Culture named after April 25 where the congress is held.
The agenda of the forum, which is likely to last several days, was not disclosed in advance. Experts believe that the delegates will focus on domestic issues, discuss steps aimed at boosting the country’s defense capabilities and developing economy amid sanctions imposed on Pyongyang in response to its missile and nuclear program. Apparently, people’s representatives will reaffirm the importance of the policy proclaimed by Kim Jong-un that envisages developing the country’s economy and strengthening its nuclear potential simultaneously.
The delegates are expected to harshly criticize the United States referred to by the local media as "the Korean nation’s sworn enemy" as well as South Korea and Japan. Reshuffling the upper echelons of power is possible.
The current congress of the Workers’ Party of Korea is the first in 36 years.
