At a closed meeting of the Central Military Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea, measures to counter a potential military threat in connection with the escalated situation on the Korean Peninsula were considered, the Korean Central Telegraph Agency (KCNA) reported.

The meeting, according to the report, discussed "strategic tasks of the main units to respond to the military situation in the area of the Korean Peninsula and the problems of potential military threats and combat readiness, as well as touched upon key issues of further strengthening the policy of military deterrence."

The closed session was preceded by an extended one.

"At the expanded meeting, the issues of activating party education and leadership of the commanders and political workers of the people's army were discussed," the Agency writes.

KCNA called the decisions taken at these meetings "historic," but did not specify what measures related to "military deterrence" were discussed at the closed meeting.
