Kim Jong Un criticizes his own Cabinet and calls it “incompetent” in the face of economic failure

The leader of North Korea, Kim Jong Un, has criticized his own Cabinet on Friday for its alleged “incompetence” when it comes to facing the economic problems that the country is going through.

As he pointed out in a plenary session of the Central Committee of the Workers’ Party, the Cabinet “has failed to play a fundamental role in planning the most key economic fields.”

In this sense, he has accused the Cabinet of focusing only on “generating economic figures and trying to achieve arbitrary objectives instead of appearing with clear tactics to improve the economy,” according to information from the North Korean state agency KCNA.

Kim’s remarks take place on the fourth day of the Committee’s session and a month after he admitted that the country’s economic policy is “flawed.” For the leader, the objectives of the plan announced in 2016 for the next five years have not been achieved “in most areas.”

A series of natural disasters, including floods and storms, as well as the coronavirus pandemic, have hit the Asian country, which is subject to heavy sanctions by the international community due to its nuclear program.
