North Korean leader Kim Jong-un first appeared in public after a three-week absence in a new and atypical outfit for him and high spirits. This is reported by the Daily Mail tabloid.
Kim Jong-un left his usual outfit вЂ” black and gray suits вЂ” and put on a white shirt at a meeting of the Politburo of the Central Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea. The Daily Mail indicates that other party members sat quite close to each other, despite the danger of coronavirus infection.
In the past two months, the North Korean leader has disappeared several times for a long time. On May 24, he first appeared in public after a three-week absence. The head of the republic held a meeting of the Central Military Committee of the Labor Party of Korea and discussed the requirements for strengthening national defense forces.
In mid-April, Kim Jong-un missed the birthday celebration of his grandfather, the founder of the DPRK, Kim Il Sung. Because of this, rumors appeared about a politician's possible death or illness. It was assumed that the leader of North Korea could not stand up on his own, walk normally, or was it a вЂњvegetative state.вЂќ However, on May 2, the Central Telegraph Agency of Korea and the country's official print publication published photos of Kim from the opening ceremony of the new plant.
