North Korea may brace for contact with outside world

(Seoul) – North Korea’s latest appointment of its foreign minister as a member of the ruling party’s politburo appears intended to brace for possible high-level contact with the U.S. and China, a Seoul think tank report said.
North Korea on Saturday promoted Foreign Minister Ri Yong-ho to a member of the political bureau of the Workers’ Party of Korea (WPK) from an alternative member, a rare promotion of a top diplomat to a key party position.
Two North Korean foreign ministers doubled as members of the politburo during the period of late founder Kim Il-sung who had ruled the country from 1945-1994, but there has been no such case since the era of late former leader Kim Jong-il who died in late 2011, according to a report by the state-run Institute for National Security Strategy (INSS), Yonhap News Agency reported.
“Ri’s appointment appears aimed at preparing for potential high-level contact with the U.S. and China,” the report said. “In particular, it seems to reflect the need to match the title of Chinese diplomatic counterparts.”
The move came amid an escalating war of words between North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and US.President Donald Trump over Pyongyang’s nuclear and missile programmes, the news agency said.
Ri said in New York last month that his country could consider a detonation of a hydrogen bomb over the Pacific Ocean. The North’s ruler vowed to take “high-level” retaliation against Washington as Trump threatened to “totally destroy” the North.
The WPK held the plenary meeting to conduct the personnel reshuffle days before its 72nd anniversary of the founding.
Kim Yo-jong, the sister of the North’s leader, was named an alternate member of the party’s politburo, the top decision-making body. The move appears intended to further tighten the Kim family’s control over the country.

    “I have observed that online diploma is getting preferred because attaining your degree online has turned into a popular selection for many people. A large number of people have not really had a possible opportunity to attend a normal college or university yet seek the raised earning possibilities and a better job that a Bachelor Degree offers. Still others might have a diploma in one course but would want to pursue anything they already have an interest in.”

    “Thanks for the strategies you reveal through your blog. In addition, a lot of young women that become pregnant usually do not even try and get health care insurance because they are concerned they might not qualify. Although a lot of states currently require insurers produce coverage no matter the pre-existing conditions. Prices on most of these guaranteed plans are usually higher, but when with the high cost of medical treatment it may be your safer approach to take to protect a person’s financial future.”

    “Another thing I have really noticed is the fact that for many people, a bad credit score is the consequence of circumstances outside of their control. One example is they may be really saddled by having an illness and as a consequence they have large bills for collections. It would be due to a employment loss or maybe the inability to work. Sometimes divorce proceedings can really send the money in an opposite direction. Many thanks sharing your thinking on this site.”
