The conference was the first of its kind and involved "realizing the organizational and ideological consolidation of the Party ranks in every way" and enhancing the party's leadership role, state news agency KCNA said.

The event focused on the "Party Life Guidance" sections, which are powerful organizations that monitor and police loyalty of officials and members across the country.

The DPRK is grappling with multiple crises, including its first acknowledged COVID-19 outbreak, the economic effects of international sanctions and erratic weather events such as high temperatures and floods.
