North Korea wrapped up on Friday its four-day plenary meeting of the Workers' Party Central Committee where its leader Kim Jong-un pledged to overcome the "current difficult situation."
That's according to the regime's state media on Saturday.
Kim's comments seem to refer to a current economic crisis that the regime is facing.
The North Korean leader has emphasized improving his people's livelihoods and tackling the economic challenge throughout the meeting, highlighting the food shortage in the North.
There was no mention of who will be taking the "first secretary" post which was created after the North revised its rules in January.
