South Korean Intelligence: No Truth to Rumors of Kim Jong-un’s Illness
After all the media huffing and puffing about the supposedly “grave illness” of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un come the assessment of South Korea’s National Intelligence Service (NIS):
The NIS said Kim has no health problem related to his heart, citing experts’ explanation that even a mild procedure would take four to five weeks of rehabilitation. The agency said Kim’s public activity so far this year represents a 66 percent fall in the average of 50 public appearances in previous years. “Even when Kim did not appear in public, he was managing state affairs as usual,” the NIS was quoted as saying.
