Still no unusual signs in N. Korea: Cheong Wa Dae

North Korea 15:37 April 22, 2020

SEOUL, April 22 (Yonhap) -- Cheong Wa Dae said Wednesday it has not seen any unusual indications in North Korea that may suggest its leader Kim Jong-un's reported serious health problem.

"There has been no unusual activity" in the secretive communist neighbor in connection with news reports that Kim is critically ill, a Cheong Wa Dae official told reporters on the customary condition of anonymity.

He would not comment on Kim's whereabouts and whether he underwent a heart surgery.

Kim has not engaged in any public activity since April 11. He missed a key national ceremony to commemorate the 108th birth anniversary of his late grandfather and state founder Kim Il-sung, sparking speculation that he might have been hospitalized.
