North Korea's Chief of Staff Deposed

Drama in North Korea: Kim Jong Un deposed the Chief of Staff

North Korea's Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un ousted General Park Su-il, the Chief of the General Staff, after just 7 months and ordered the military to increase readiness for a potential war against the "enemies of Pyongyang." This move comes ahead of the joint exercises between South Korea and the United States

North Korea's leader Kim Jong Un has reportedly dismissed the Chief of the General Staff, Park Su-il - as reported today (Thursday) in the local media. It is also stated that the new Chief of the North Korean Army will be Ri Yong-gil, who previously served as Kim's deputy and has previously held the position of Minister of Defense.

According to reports, Kim announced the dismissal of Su-Il in a meeting of the Central Military Committee, without specifying the reason for his removal. Su-Il served as Chief of the General Staff for only 7 months, replacing Pak Jong-chon who was himself removed from the position last January.

It was further reported that during the discussion, Kim directed senior military officials to enhance readiness for a possible war against the "enemy of Pyongyang." It appears that Kim was likely referring to South Korea, which is set to conduct joint military exercises with the United States at the end of the month. This has raised significant concerns within Kim's regime.

Among other things, the generals were requested to increase weapon production in the country and expand military exercises within the country, utilizing the new weaponry at the army's disposal. Additionally, the members of the military committee also discussed preparations for the upcoming military parade scheduled for September, commemorating North Korea's 75th Independence Day.
