China: – The health condition of Kim Jon Un was a hot point of discussion in the media for a couple of days but no evidential news or statement was available.
Now, China has dispatched a team to North Korea including medial experts to care the North Korean leader Kim Un. The news was reported by an official familiar with the US intelligence.
It is still unknown if Mr. Kim Un is in serious illness or unable to recover.
The sources declined to be identified given the sensitivity of the matter. Reuters couldn’t reach the Liaison Department on Friday. China’s foreign ministry did not immediately respond to a request for comment late on Friday.
Daily NK, a Seoul-based website, reported earlier this week that Kim was recovering after undergoing a cardiovascular procedure on April 12. It cited one unnamed source in North Korea.
South Korean government officials and a Chinese official with the Liaison Department challenged subsequent reports suggesting that Kim was in grave danger after surgery. South Korean officials said they had detected no signs of unusual activity in North Korea.
Kim is a third-generation hereditary leader who came to power after his father Kim Jong Il died in 2011 from a heart attack. He has visited China four times since 2018. Trump held unprecedented summits with Kim in 2018 and 2019 as part of a bid to persuade him to give up North Korea’s nuclear arsenal.
