SEOUL, Oct. 28 (Yonhap) -- North Korean leader Kim Jong-un is recovering following an operation to remove a cyst from his ankle, though there is a chance that the condition could recur, lawmakers said Tuesday, citing South Korea's spy agency.

Kim received the operation between September and October by inviting a foreign doctor into the communist country, according to Lee Cheol-woo of the ruling Saenuri Party and Shin Kyong-min of the main opposition New Politics Alliance for Democracy.

The two lawmakers made the comments to reporters after a closed-door parliamentary audit of the National Intelligence Service in southern Seoul.
