Kim Jong-un, the leader of North Korea, last resigned on the 12th. April in public. Then he missed the 15. April: Celebrating the birthday of his grandfather, the founder of Kim Il-sung State. It was strange, because it’s one of the biggest events on the country’s calendar.
Kim Jong-un said he wanted to attend the event, but this year he missed it. This has led to speculation about his state of health. His presence at the ribbon occupancy ceremony in a factory near Pyongyang has dispelled all doubts.
The Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) reported that in some cases senior officials were present. One of them was his sister Kim Yo-jung. North Korea, also known as the Kingdom of Hermits, prefers to disseminate information through its official information channels. Therefore, it is not easy to assess the real scenario.
The BBC reports that Kim Jong-un cut the ribbon during the ceremony at the factory. There was a big gathering of people and they applauded. Kim praised the factory, which he believes will make a useful contribution to the country’s chemical and food industry.
The North Korean state media have confirmed that Kim Jong-un has appeared in public for the first time in 20 days.
South Korea was watching Kim Jong-un.
Given North Korea’s mysterious nature, the neighbouring country had to obtain crucial information and determine its authenticity.
This is all the more important because the South is an ally of the United States. However, recent reports in the North Korean media do not confirm Kim’s existence. U.S. President Donald Trump has decided to remain silent on this matter. He shares a unique bond with Kim Jong-un and doesn’t want to get involved in fights.
The BBC mentions a site operated by North Korean deserters.
It is said that Kim Jong-un suffered from certain cardiovascular diseases for a while, but after several visits to Mount Paektu the situation has deteriorated. This led to speculation about his physical condition, and the South Korean Secret Service tried to find out the facts about the case.
The 29th. In April, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said U.S. officials had not seen the North Korean leader recently. Besides, he disappeared in September 2014 for 40 days.
It was after he went to the concert. When he reappeared, he used a stick. At that time, South Korean intelligence discovered that it was probably the result of a small operation on the left ankle.
Kim Jong-un has chosen May Day for his return.
According to CNN, North Korean leader Kim Jong-un appeared on May Day, he was in a happy mood, smoked and laughed, it was his first public appearance in about three weeks. He addressed his officials at the event, reports the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA). Sometimes he cut the ribbon at the fertilizer factory and praised everyone who made it possible.
The state media broadcast the video recording of the program. South Korea has followed the story and a senior official has confirmed to a media department that the North Korean leader is better off.
The health of Kim Jong-un was a fear.
The two Koreas are diametrically opposed. While the north is isolated from the world, the south is an ally of the United States and an important cog on the Korean peninsula. The North has a huge arsenal of nuclear weapons and Donald Trump is trying to convince Kim Jong-un to give up his nuclear ambitions and accept the world. They met several times to work out the formula.
However, Kim Jong-un’s absence from an important event has fuelled rumours about his health. Before that, in 2017, Kim Jong-un retired to the shell. His country had to deal with sanctions and lost its capacities as a result of its nuclear activities. North Korea must recognize that nuclear weapons are not suitable for today’s world.
