Former North Korean armed forces minister Kim Kyok Sik has been posted as chief of the General Staff of the Korean People's Army (KPA), a media report monitored in Seoul said Wednesday.

The appointment was confirmed by the Korean Central Television station, which said Kim was one of the dignitaries present at the airport for Choe Ryong Hae's visit to China as the special envoy of the North Korean leader. The report only gave Kim's title and did not say when he was appointed.
