WPK Conference pictures

Launch of the Unha-3 rocket and Kwangmyongsong-3 satellite isn’t the only big thing happening in Pyongyang this week. As the city gears up to mark 100 years since the birth of national founder Kim Il Sung, the ruling Workers’ Party of Korea is holding its conference.

During Wednesday’s session, the conference named Kim Jong Il the “eternal general secretary of the WPK” and named Kim Jong Un “first secretary of the WPK,” which was “true to the behest of leader Kim Jong Il,” according to a KCNA report.

While we’re all waiting for that, here are some pictures of the conference courtesy of North Korean television.
