Kim Yo-Jong Becomes AMember Of Politburo

North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un has promoted his younger sister to a senior ruling party post, state media said recently, praising the country’s nuclear weapons programme which has sparked international alarm.

Kim Yo-Jong becomes an alternate member of the party’s powerful politburo, the decision-making body presided over by her brother, the official KCNA news agency said.

The promotion was announced along with those of dozens of other top officials at a party meeting led by Kim Jong Un. His sister, in her late 20s, has frequently been seen accompanying her brother on his “field guidance trips” and other events and is known to have been involved in the party’s propaganda operations.
