North Korean leader Kim Jong Un discharged two of his officers because he did not offer a new idea to bring the country’s economy back on track. North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un expressed displeasure over his cabinet’s performance and removed a senior finance officer he had appointed a month earlier from service. Kim alleged that these officials did not offer any new ideas to bring back the country’s economy going through a crisis.
Government media ‘KCNA’ reported on Friday that dictator Kim Jong was hoping that his diplomacy to remove US sanctions about nuclear programs would work, but he was stuck. At the same time, the economy is going through a crisis due to the closure of borders due to Kovid-19 epidemic and crop failure in natural disaster. According to the news, this was the toughest period in Kim’s nine-year tenure.
Due to the current challenges, Kim had to publicly acknowledge the failure of earlier economic plans. The Five-Year Economic Plan was presented at the ‘Workus Party Congress’ meeting in January, but Kim’s disappointment about the plans implemented so far was clearly reflected in the party’s Central Committee meeting on Thursday.
Kim Jong Un said in Thursday’s meeting that the cabinet failed to kill the economy. O Su Yong has been appointed as the new director of the Central Committee’s Department of Economic Affairs, replacing Kim Tu II, according to KCNA.
