TEHRAN (Iran News) – The Kremlin has no official information on North Korean leader Kim Jong-un’s health, Russian Presidential Spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Tuesday.
“We have no official information,” he said, when asked if Moscow had received any official information about Kim Jong-un’s health, TASS reported from Kremlin officials.
The North Korean leader has not been seen in public since April 11, when he chaired a meeting of the Political Bureau of the Central Committee of the Workers’ Party of Korea.
He was absent from the annual session of the Supreme People’s Assembly on April 12 and for the first time since taking the reins missed the Day of the Sun ceremony, which this year commemorated the 108th birth anniversary of Kim Il-sung on April 15, sparking rumors about his health.
The Kremlin spokesman said earlier that Moscow was waiting for official information about the North Korean leader’s health.
Earlier, information on a trip by the Chinese doctors and officials came amid conflicting reports about the health of the North Korean leader. Reuters was unable to immediately determine what the trip by the Chinese team signaled in terms of Kim’s health.
A delegation led by a senior member of the Chinese Communist Party’s International Liaison Department left Beijing for North Korea on Thursday, two of the people said. The department is the main Chinese body dealing with neighboring North Korea.
