North Korea’s Kim Jong Un Emerges From Almost Three-Week Absence
Kim proves health speculations wrong, visits factory with sister
Trump says he ‘may’ talk to Kim via telephone this weekend
Kim Jong Un has finally appeared publicly visiting a factory after his almost three-week absence from public events. His appearance will definitely quell speculations about his health. However, concerns following his staunch stance on testing nuclear weapons will not end.
The North Korean leader presided over a May Day ceremony to mark the completion of the Sunchon Phosphatic Fertilizer Factory located northeast of the capital Pyongyang, according to the official Korean Central News Agency which reported these findings early Saturday.
The official State media of the country released photos showing the North Korean leader in a black Mao suit cutting a ribbon outside the facility.
So far, following Kim’s reemergence into the public eye, U.S. President Donald Trump has declined to comment reporters before heading to Camp David for the weekend break that he “may” speak with the North Korean leader on phone. He said, “We’ll have something to say about it at the appropriate time,”
Kim Jong Un’s appearance will now calm down the raging storm built by the media over his next successor. Many believed his sister would take over the helm of affairs in the isolated country.
