NKorea Publishes Letter From Kim Jong Un

A letter dated 27 April from NKorea’s leader, Kim Jong Un, to South African President Cyril Ramaphosa congratulating him on Freedom Day was published by NKorea state media Monday.

The letter comes in the wake of speculation about leader Kim’s health after he missed the celebration of his grandfather’s birthday on 15 April and has not been seen publicly recently.

There has been no independent verification if Kim’s letter, which expressed the hope the friendship between the 2 countries would continue to expand, is actually from him and written on the day stated.

This is the 4th time NKorea state media has mentioned ordinary duties carried out by Kim since rumors about his health started earlier this month.

Following widespread reports of Kim’s supposed deteriorating health, SKorean Presidential adviser Moon Chung said Sunday that Kim was “alive and well” and staying in the Wonsan area, where he has a luxurious compound.

The reports about Kim’s poor health included he was in grave danger after surgery and another claimed he received a cardiovascular procedure because of too much smoking, obesity, and overwork. There has been no verification of that.

A Top SKorean official said his country remains confident that there have been no “unusual developments” in NKorea, suggesting that rumors about the health of leader Kim Jong Un are untrue.

President Trump said Monday he has a “very good idea” about the health of NKorean leader Kim Jong Un, but cannot yet talk about it publicly.

Have a healthy day, Keep the Faith!
