Succession crisis in North Korea unlikely: Experts.

New Delhi, Sept.14 (ANI): Leading Korean Peninsula experts have ruled out the possibility of a "succession crisis" in North Korea.

During a session open to international media on what if there is a "succession crisis" in DPRK, in Davos, leading experts from China, South Korea and Japan agreed that the hypothetical question raised by some people from the international community is "inconceivable."

It's not about a new leader, but "a new leadership structure," Xinhua quoted Yang Xiyu, a senior fellow at China Institute of International Studies, as saying.

By a decision announced by the Politburo of the Central Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea (WPK) in June, the WPK will hold a conference to elect its highest leading body.

According to the charter of the WPK, delegates will discuss and decide the policies and personnel changes of the party during the WPK conference.

Kim Jong-il, top leader of the party, was unanimously elected a delegate at a meeting of the Korean People's Army and WPK on August 25.

Yang also said that the DPRK leadership is full of confidence, adding that the country has recently expressed its willingness to return to the six-party talks.

On the unification of the Korean Peninsula, they believed that both North and South Korea should play a major part in this process, while other parties concerned should support their integration.

However, they agreed the integration of the Korean Peninsula still has a long way to go.
