The meeting on Friday called for a “high-alert posture” against the “recent fast-changing” situation on the Korean Peninsula, said KCNA, adding that it also addressed organizational issue of dismissing, transferring and newly appointing some military officers.

Kim discussed “important tasks” to make “a fresh turn in the overall work of national defense,” KCNA said without elaborating on details.
