Kim Might be in Grave Danger
Whereas the US Intelligence has claimed that Jong Un recently had cardiovascular surgery and hasn’t recovered from it, CNN cited an anonymous US official who said Kim was in ‘grave danger’ following the procedure.
Previously in 2014, when Kim Jong Un was absent from the public view for six weeks, he later came back limping with a cane – after having a cyst removal surgery on his foot.
It’s becoming THE question by each passing hour whether Kim Jong Un is ill or not? Worse, is he dead?
Kim Jong Un is Missing in Action
The Korean dictator failed to show up on the nation’s single most important day. On April 15, The Day of the Sun – he was missing from celebrations of the birth anniversary of Kim Il Sung, the country’s founder, eternal president, and his grandfather. His absence was noticed by several experts and media.
Kang Min-Seok, a spokesman from South Korea’s presidential office has released a statement to the international press. The statement from the office said, “There has been nothing to confirm regarding the North Korean leader Kim Jong Un’s health as reported recently by some media, and so far, no specific trends have been identified inside North Korea.”
North Korea says Everything is Fine
South Korea’s NK News reports that Kim is touring with his close aides, stressing that Seoul has seen no “peculiar” activity out of Pyongyang.
South Korea-based newspaper Daily NK on Monday reported that the North Korean leader underwent a “cardiovascular procedure” on April 12. The surgery took place at an exclusive clinic near Mount Myohyang, roughly 180 kilometers north of Pyongyang.
The report completely contradicts the blue house’s statement which says, his activities are ongoing ‘normally.’
The US Keeping an Eye on North Korea
In a Fox News interview on Tuesday, Donald Trump’s national security advisor Robert O’Brien said that the United States is monitoring Kim Jong Un’s status closely. “As you know, North Korea is a very closed society.” “We’re monitoring these reports very closely,” he affirmed.
Currently, Seoul and Washington are negotiating on a new agreement about how both countries can share the costs of the 28,500 American troops stationed in South Korea.
The revelation comes after on Monday, Donald Trump said he wants South Korea to pay more for the U.S. military presence. The US government has contingency plans in place for an event of Kim Jong Un’s death.
When information comes out of the North Korean dictator’s office one should always read between the lines. So one has to wonder what happens if Kim Jong Un is really dead?
Enter Kim Yo-Jong…
North Korea’s Propagandist-in-chief, Kim Yo-Jong is Kim Jong Un’s sister and also his only confidante.
Less is known about Yo-Jong between her graduation from Chinese University to her rise in power. However, Jong Un and Yo-Jong’s closeness is attributed to their exile together in Switzerland at a younger age.
Just last weekend, she was reinstated to the party’s powerful politburo. She is said to have her brother’s full trust, who is known to have executed his own uncle for treason. Jong is also the mastermind behind Jong Un’s image at home and outside.
With reports that Kim Jong Un may be dead, now the world’s attention on Kim Yo-jong.
