SWITZERLAND, APRIL 26 – Kim Jong-un is ‘alive, well and staying at holiday resort’, a South Korean official has said following rumours of his death.
Today’s Echo had earlier reported the rumoured death of the North Korean Supreme Leader following a botched heart operation after Hong Kong-backed news channel HKSTV broke the story on Saturday.
Chung-in Moon, South Korea president Moon Jae-in’s foreign policy advisor, has moved to quash the reported rumours of his death, saying the North Korea Supreme Leader is instead staying at his holiday resort on the North Korean coast. However, many international news channels had reported the death of the dictator, citing credible sources.
“Our government position is firm…..Kim Jong-un is alive and well, ” Chung-in Moon told Fox News.
“He has been staying in the Wonsan area since April 13. No suspicious movements have so far been detected.”
This has now led to confusion about the true condition of the North Korean dictator. Information is difficult to get from the Communist country and its officials are known to withhold or distort vital information.
