North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is alive and well: South Korea

 

Seoul: Senior security adviser to South Korean President Moon Jae-in says that North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is perfectly healthy and alive. With this, all the news has come to an end in which concern was being expressed about Kim’s health. Kim did not attend the birth anniversary of his grandfather, after which there was a lot of speculation that he is dead. 

Moon’s special adviser on national security, Moon Chung-in, said in an interview with CNN on Sunday, “Our government’s position is firm. Kim Jong-un is alive and completely fine.’ The consultant said that Kim has been living in Wonsan since April 13. It is a resort city located in the east of the country. He said that no suspicious activity has been reported so far.

Questions began to arise on April 15 about Kim’s health. This day marks the birthday of Kim-2 Sung, the founder of North Korea and Kim’s grandfather, and is a very important day for the country. Kim Jong has not appeared at any public events since April 11. The next day state media reported that they were inspecting the fighter jet in the air defense unit.

Kim’s absence led to many unconfirmed reports about his health. At the same time, South Korea’s presidential office issued a statement last week saying, “We have nothing to confirm and no specific activity has been detected inside North Korea yet.” At the same time, there was a report that Kim is recovering after undergoing a cardiac procedure.

On Monday, the Rodong Sinmun newspaper said Kim thanked the staff working at the Wonsan Kalma Coastal Beach Resort. This is the first information in recent times given by Kim. US-based think-tank 38North has reviewed some satellite photos, including a train that appeared in Wonsan last week, presumably belonging to Kim. It is believed that he is living there.
