With regard to its southern neighbor, Kim Jong-UN has once again stated that North Korea supports the idea of unification of the two Koreas on a confederal basis. “We stand for the national Association of Federal formula and will do everything possible for peace and reunification,” the Associated Press quoted the words of the North Korean leader. In this case we are talking about the idea of a Confederation, which was made in 1980 at the last Congress of the WPK. Essentially this idea involves a scheme of “one country, two systems” that allows the North to maintain their political traditions. Note that the words about uniting sound in the statements of Kim Jong-UN since 2012. The implementation of this project is hardly easy: Pyongyang and Seoul are at different stages of economic development.

However, the DPRK is ready for an armed solution to this problem. “But if South Koreans choose a war …we’ll give them a fair fight so ruthlessly to destroy opposition to unite forces and to finish the historic cause of national reunification, which has long coveted all Koreans,” said Kim Jong-UN.

Also at the seventh Congress the President announced a five-year economic plan. The leader of the DPRK highlighted a number of key development areas, among which energy, agriculture and light industry. He stressed that the country needs to increase international trade and participation in the global economy, however, has not announced any significant reforms. The North Korean authorities for the first time since 1980, publicly announce the five-year plan for economic development. This, as noted by the AP, said that Kim Jong-UN takes responsibility for the economic problems of the country that his father, Kim Jong Il, who avoided to do on a post of the head of state.

The seventh Congress of the WPK was not without scandal. The journalist “bi-Bi-si” Rupert Wingfield-Hayes and his crew were detained by North Korean police officers. It is known that DPRK authorities intend to deport them from the country because of reports about North Korea. As specified by the journalists themselves British Corporation, Pyongyang was not satisfied with how the film crew of Bi-bi-si has illuminated the life of the capital.
