Where's the dramamine? Part Twelve
SEOUL, South Korea - North Korea announced Thursday it will convene its rubber-stamp legislature next month — a meeting that will draw international attention as it coincides with a deadline for the shutdown of Pyongyang's main nuclear reactor.If North Korea's Supreme People's Assembly is so predictable, why is anyone going to pay attention to how it votes. North Korea will have made their intentions clear already.
The Supreme People's Assembly, which usually convenes once or twice a year to approve budgets or discuss policy, will meet on April 11, the North's official Korean Central News Agency said in a one-sentence dispatch that gave no other details.
The session is expected to be closely watched, because it will come days before the April 14 deadline for North Korea to close its main nuclear reactor in exchange for energy aid under last month's landmark deal with the United States and four other nations.
Not to mention that the only coverage of this meeting is coming from the North Koreans themselves. The DPRK not exacly being an open society. If AP had a reporter there in person, the interest in this meeting would be different.
