    The news was confirmed by North Korea's official Central News Agency. It also added that the country was making efforts to shift its national focus and also improve the economy.

    It also vowed to actively engage with regional neighbours and the international community to secure peace in the Korean Peninsula and create an "optimal international environment" to build its economy.

    The announcements came days before North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is set to meet South Korean President Moon Jae-in in a border truce village for a rare summit aimed at resolving the nuclear standoff with Pyongyang.

    A separate meeting between Kim and U.S. President Donald Trump is anticipated in May or June.

    The North's decisions were made in a meeting of the ruling party's full Central Committee which had convened to discuss a "new stage" of policies.
