PYONGYANG: North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has promoted his sister, Kim Yo Jong to the country's top decision-making body, the Central Committee, in a major reshuffle in his government.

The announcement was made at the Second Plenary Session of the 7th Central Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea (WPK) held in Pyongyang .Kim Jong Un, chairman of the Workers' Party of Korea, presided over the session, KCNA reported.

The sister reportedly replaces Kim Jong Un's aunt, Kim Kyong Hee, who was a key decision maker of Kim's father - the late Kim Jong Il.

The most high-level appointment was the promotion of 67-year-old Choe Ryong Hae, who is known to be one of Kim's closest aides. Several vacant posts of the Political Bureau of the WPK Central Committee were filled.

Kim also described North Korea's nuclear weapons program as a "powerful deterrent" that guaranteed the Korean nation's rights to sovereignty, existence and development.

"Our nuclear weapons are a priceless fruit of the Korean people's painstaking efforts to protect their destiny and sovereignty from the long-standing nuclear threats of the US imperialists", KCNA quoted Kim as saying.

Kim Jong Un took stock of the complex international situation surrounding the DPRK and the pending issues before specifying present Party activities to cope with the situation, direction of economic development, and strategic tasks and ways in this regard.
