North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has sent a message to workers building a tourist complex in the east of the country after speculation about an alleged deterioration in his health has surfaced, which was rejected again on Monday. by the government of South Korea.
Speculation arose after Kim’s absence from official events on April 15 to commemorate the birth of the regime’s founder, Kim Il Sung, the current president’s grandfather. The official media in Pyongyang have not hinted at these reports to reject them, although they continue to report on the leader’s official activities.
For example, they have posted several messages from Kim in the past two weeks, the last one on Monday. According to the official newspaper “Rodong Sinmun”, the North Korean head of state has given his “appreciation” to workers who are building a tourist area in the Wonsan region.
The President of the United States, Donald Trump, denied the accuracy of the information last week, while the South Korean government has ruled out “unusual activities” in the neighboring country. “We have nothing to confirm in terms of speculation about leader Kim Jong Un’s greeting,” the Ministry of Unification said Monday, according to the Yonhap agency.
