Kim Jong Un Not Seen Publicly In 35 Days
Kim Jong Un has not been seen in public for 35 days ahead of a mass parade in Pyongyang this week which will celebrate the 75th anniversary of the North Korean military.
This comes as the dictator reportedly skipped a Politburo meeting where the country’s agricultural issues were to be discussed, according to state media.
It was only the third time Kim has ever done so, with the other occasions coming in June and September of last year.
Earlier this month a new North Korean propaganda film looking back on last year’s ‘worst-ever hardships’ appeared to show their authoritarian leader limping as he walked down a flight of stairs.
This latest extended period out of the public eye has sparked fresh concerns over Kim’s health and a potential successor.
Kim’s 35 day absence from the public matches another period of non-presence at the end of 2021, a state media site reported.
The leader is still, however, expected to attend the nation’s huge military parade this week, which could be held alternatively as early as Tuesday.
