There’s something special going on in North Korea, I’m sure. An extra large assembly , such as not having been held for many years, is serving as a coronation of Kim Jon Un even though he’s been in the job for three years. He. dressed in a stylish double-breasted Saville Row suit — with a handkerchief in its button hole — such as Prince Charles sports, suggests perhaps an attempt at a rapprochement with the West.
It could be. A year ago a high-ranked government delegation of North Korea’s Nos. 2, 3, 4 and 5 visited South Korea for a day or two of talks. Not a word leaked out, but it could have been an attempt at reunification.
This year, quite a large team of BBC journalists have been allowed in to film selected parts of Pyongyang. This included, intriguingly, a clip of superbly kitted young footballers training assiduously. Having a national soccer team will be essential entry ticket.
Is something unusual about to happen?
