North Korea's leader Kim Jong-un made his first public appearance in about a month presiding over a politburo session of the Workers' Party on Friday.
There was no message for the South or the U.S.
The regime's state media reported that during the session, they decided to hold a plenary meeting of the Central Committee of the Party early this month apparently to discuss issues on the economy and people's livelihoods.
Kim said the meeting would focus on reviewing overall state affairs for the first half of the year.
Observers say they could also discuss their strategy toward the South or the U.S. at the meeting.
