The shooting opened by the North Korean military on the border with South Korea was probably вЂњrandom.вЂќ
This is against the backdrop of continued speculation about the health of the North Korean leader Kim Jong-un. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Sunday, May 3, reports Voice of America...
вЂњWe believe that this was an accidental shooting. South Korea did indeed return fire. But as far as we can tell, there were no victims from either side,вЂќ he said, speaking in the program вЂњThis WeekвЂќ on ABC.
As you know, on May 3, several shots were fired from the territory of North Korea towards South Korea, followed by a similar return fire. It is noted that the bullets were in the guard post. There were no victims from either side.
A day earlier, the head of the DPRK, Kim Jong-un, appeared in public for the first time in 20 days, attending the opening ceremony of the Suncheon Fertilizer Plant. This was the first appearance of Kim Jong-un in public since April 11.
The absence of Kim Jong-un in the ranks of the country's leadership on the main national holiday gave rise to rumors either about a serious illness or even about the death of the leader of North Korea.
