North Korea's state media released new still photos of its leader Kim Jong-un on Thursday, meeting workers to mark May Day.

The photos, run by the North's state-run television KRT, showed Kim visiting the Ministry of People's Security and of him watching a soccer match with his wife Ri Sol-ju.

Although KRT said the events were held to mark May Day, it didn't clarify the exact date and location of the events.

On Tuesday, KRT broadcasted a video of Kim and his wife watching the final match of the men's premier soccer teams at Kim Il-sung Stadium.

KRT said the soccer match was held on Monday.

North Korea has recently toned down its bellicose rhetoric after making a series of threats of nuclear war against the United States and South Korea.

Although a joint industrial zone in Kaesong, North Korea has been closed.
