The Story So Far
Last week, the reports of Kim being in a ‘grave’ health condition surfaced. Some claimed he was incapacitated or even brain dead. It all started with the US Intelligence claiming that Kim Jong Un’s health conditions were unstable post a cardiovascular surgery.
When Kim Jong Un didn’t show up on single most important festival of the nation – The Day of the Sun the rumours started floating around.
He’s not been seen since however, the South Korean Presidential office claimed, things look ‘quite normal’ in their neighbouring country.
On Tuesday, US President Donald Trump wished Kim Jong Un, well. But he denied the death rumour. On Thursday he said in White House briefing, “I think the report was incorrect.”
However, Trump’s national security advisor Robert O’Brien told Fox News, “As you know, North Korea is a very closed society. We’re monitoring these reports very closely.”
The Turn of Events
Now, a senior TV executive in Hong Kong has revealed to her 15 million followers on Weibo that Kim Jong Un is dead, citing sources. Furthermore, Reuters reports about a medical team being dispatched from China to North Korea to care for Kim.
Meanwhile, the White House officials have no comments about the whole ‘dead or alive’ situation.
But the US is looking into the reports, the Newsweek quoted an anonymous Pentagon official confirming that. The official said, “While the US continues to monitor reports, at this time, there is no confirmation from official channels that Kim Jong Un is dead.”
Some other reports claim to sight Kim Jong Un at a beach resort somewhere in the port city of Wonsan.
In the past North Korea has kept the death of their leaders under wraps. The Pentagon official said, there is no further evidence to suggest a significant change in defensive posturing or national level leadership changes.”
Whatever the case might be it’s certain that Kim Jong Un is wanted, Dead or Alive!
