To celebrate his official coronation as leader, North Korea dictator Kim Jong-Un has reportedly cancelled all weddings and funerals this week in the communist nation.
Kim Jong-Un will formally cement his status as North Korea's supreme leader this week at a ruling party congress, the MailOnline reported on Monday.
The gathering, first of its kind in nearly 40 years, will recognise the 33-year-old leader as the legitimate inheritor of the dynastic dictatorship, the Mail said.
Kim Jong-Un succeeded his late father Kim Jong-Il as the leader of North Korea after his demise in December 2011.
“This congress means everything for Kim Jong-Un. 'It is the most public, historic setting in which he can demonstrate that he is fully in charge, and that everyone follows his orders,” the report quoted John Delury, a North Korea expert at Yonsei University in Seoul, as saying.
The last such congress was held in 1980 to crown his father as the leader of North Korea and Kim was not even born then.
