An extraordinary session of North Korean Workers Party Central Committee continues into an unprecedented fourth day on Tuesday, according to the official [North] Korean Central News Agency.
KCNA said North Korean leader Kim Jong-un chaired an epic seven-hour meeting on economic development and the regime's sovereignty and security.
As the meeting drags on, there seems to be no immediate provocation on the horizon ahead of a year-end deadline the North has set the U.S. for concessions in stalled nuclear talks.
White House national security adviser Robert O’Brien said last week the U.S. would be "very disappointed" if Pyongyang tested a long-range or nuclear missile.
