"Kim Jong Un, the newly anointed leader of North Korea, met Monday with a private delegation of prominent South Koreans, his first face-to-face encounter with any visitors from the estranged South since assuming the top spot a week ago when his father's death was announced. The meeting, scrutinized for any hint of Kim Jong Un's intentions toward South Korea, came as the official North Korean media announced he had been appointed to the top post of the ruling party."
