North Korea's Supreme People's Assembly to meet in September

North Korea has announced that it will convene a meeting of its Supreme People's Assembly on September 26.

Pyongyang revealed the information in the Thursday edition of the ruling Workers' Party newspaper, Rodong Sinmun, and the state-run Korean Central News Agency.

The North's highest legislative body meets once or twice a year to discuss the country's budget, laws and other matters.

The upcoming meeting will be the second gathering this year, following the one in January.

During this session, the participants will reportedly discuss the law related to irrigation, driven by North Korea's desire to boost its farming industry. Talks will also cover the law on public servants, as well as organizational matters.

In September of last year, the assembly meeting unexpectedly adopted a law outlining conditions under which the country would use nuclear weapons.

Experts are closely watching to see whether the agenda at the upcoming session will include the country's nuclear and missile development programs.
