Dictator Kim Jong-un’s wish: to starve North Korea in 2022

Kim gave a speech at the end of a key ruling party meeting, which also coincided with the 10th anniversary of his coming to power.

A self-imposed blockade with the coronavirus crisis has led to a food shortage in North Korea.

Kim Jong-un said the main task is to develop and improve people’s living standards.

He acknowledged the “tough situation” of 2021 and set himself “an important task to make radical progress in resolving the issue of food, clothing and housing for people,” the North Korean official news agency (KCNA) was quoted as saying. BBC.

Kim said the fight against the pandemic is one of the main goals for next year: “Efforts to prevent the epidemic should become a top priority in state work.”

But he also said that Pyongyang would continue to strengthen its defense capabilities due to an increasingly unstable military environment on the Korean peninsula.

Kim Jong-un spoke on Friday at the end of the party’s fourth plenary session, which began on Monday.

Earlier this year, there were several reports that people in North Korea were starving. The country’s borders have been closed since January 2020 to prevent the spread of Covid-19 from China.
