North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has paid an official visit to a chicken farm under construction in Hwanghaebuk-do Province to supervise its progress -- apparently a move to show that living standards are improving despite the pandemic.
The North's state-run Korean Central News Agency reported on the visit Thursday but did not say when it occured.
Kim reportedly said he wants the chicken farm to serve as a model for the North's other dilapidated farms built 20 years ago, and he said he expects it will make significant contributions to the dietary life of the North Korean people.
