/NOVOSTIVL/ All eyes are on North Korea to see if it makes a major announcement on its nuclear plans, Thursday, when the regime plans to hold a major parliamentary meeting. This article appeared in The Korea Times.

Last month, North Korean Vice Foreign Minister Choe Son-hui hinted that the regime's leadership would soon make public its "crucial decision" on denuclearizing the Korean Peninsula.

Officials from the United States and South Korea view the upcoming session of the regime's top legislative body ― the Supreme People's Assembly ― as a critical moment for the North to announce its upcoming nuclear strategies.

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Friday the U.S. would pay close attention to any possible remarks from North Korean leader Kim Jong-un during the first session of the 14th Assembly in Pyongyang.

The upcoming session will come amid stalled talks between Washington and Pyongyang after the failure of the Hanoi summit between U.S. President Donald Trump and Kim in February.
