KIM Jong-un has appointed a communist party grandee as North Korea’s new state security chief as the Pyongyang chief maintains his threat of war.

Jong Kyong-thaek, a member of the central military committee of the Workers’ Party of Korea, was promoted to the high-ranking position this week, according to the Asahi Shimbun, a Japanese newspaper.

Kim Won-hong, the top officer in North Korea’s military, was reportedly removed from his post earlier this year, prompting the country’s leader to appoint Jong.

He was reportedly sent to a collective farm in Pyongyang where he was forced to work as a labourer.

The move is seen as part of Kim Jong-un’s plan to block his aides from building up too much power and authority within the totalitarian regime.

Alongside Kim Won-hong, it is believed that Hwang Pyong-so, the chief of the General Political Bureau of the Korean People’s Army, was removed from his post as a punishment for “impure acts”.

Choe Ryong-hae, the vice chairman of the party’s central committee, has reportedly led the purge.

In October the Institute for National Security Strategy, which is affiliated with South Korea’s National Intelligence Service (NIS), predicted that the North’s supreme leader was poised to appoint a new military chief.

It was then confirmed by the NIS that the North is conducting an “inspection” of the army’s General Political Bureau.
