Leading South Korean officials said they understand Kim Jong Un’s place, at the most powerful opinions yet from Seoul because the North Korean chief vanished from public view over two months ago.
“The government knows of Kim Jong Un’s place” Unification Minister Kim Yeon-Chul stated when asked directly at a parliamentary session on Tuesday, without elaborating.
Asked separately if South Korea advised President Donald Trump of Kim Jong Un’s whereabouts and state, Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-Wha stated the U.S. leader had been in continuous communication with South Korean officials and”ought to have been advised.” She later explained that Trump was conscious of Kim Jong Un’s state although not his place.
In a media briefing hours before, Trump said he understands the health status of Kim Jong Un while stating that he”can not speak about it today.”
Speculation concerning the 36-year-old North Korean leader’s wellbeing hastened following the Seoul-based news website Daily NK reported April 20 he had been recovering from surgery, citing an unidentified individual within the nation. Since then several distinct theories have emerged, such as that he is only social distancing because of an epidemic of Covid-19 from the nation.
South Korea has consistently stated there have been no odd moves, which Kim has been remaining”at the Wonsan area” on North Korea’s eastern shore.
