The eighth party congress has started in North Korea, South Korean news agency Yonhap reports.
Kim Jong-un, leader of the dictatorial regime, is expected to deliver a speech. He may discuss the relationship with the United States and South Korea.
The communist-administered country’s party congress is the second led by the current leader who succeeded his late father Kim Jong-il in 2011.
Negotiations on nuclear disarmament are on the shelves and there is no movement in the relationship with South Korea.
