By Sangmi Cha SEOUL (Reuters) – North Korean leader Kim Jong Un chaired a meeting of the Central Military Commission, state media KCNA said on Thursday, calling for more control and discipline within the military. The meeting comes amid Kim’s push to rally his ruling Workers’ Party to implement new political goals for the next five years that were unveiled at a rare congress last month, including rising military power and greater deterrence of nuclear war. The meeting addressed a number of issues about political activities and discipline among military officers and called for stricter rules to control these matters. Kim said that the establishment of a revolutionary discipline within the army would decide the survival of the army and the success or failure of its activities, KCNA said.
