North Korea says the state goals of the Kim Jong-un era are to revive its economy and guarantee regime safety through nuclear power.

In an all-members meeting Sunday, the North's Workers Party's Central Committee unanimously agreed to build a strong nation through a strong economy and nuclear power.

The committee said this guideline will help to decisively strengthen war deterrence and national defense without additional defense costs, and in turn shift the focus to the economy and improving the lives of North Koreans.

It also said nuclear weapons are not a political or economic bargaining chip, and North Korea, as a nuclear power, will not respond to meetings that demand it unilaterally abandon its weapons.

Meanwhile, North Korea’s Supreme People's Assembly will convene in Pyongyang on Monday.

With tensions escalating on the Korean Peninsula, attention is drawn to what kind of message the assembly will send out to South Korea and the United States.
