North Korea, Leader Kim Jong-Un. is reportedly in a “trembly” condition after undergoing an undisclosed heart surgery.
Seoul-based news outlet Daily Korea reported that the North Korean leader Kim was staying at a countryside villa outside Pyongyang while he recovered from heart surgery and that his condition was improving after he was conspicuously absent from events on 15th April commemorating the birth of his grandfather Kim Il-sung, the founder of the nation – one of North Korea’s most important holiday celebrations.
Dozens of top Government officials attended a flamboyant military parade at the Kumsusan Palace of the Sun on the 15th of April, but Kim was nowhere to be seen.
According to Daily NK, Kim had heart surgery on April 12. because of “excessive smoking, obesity, and overwork,” and is now receiving treatment in a villa in Hyangsan County following his procedure.
According to the news site, after Kim’s condition had improved, most of the medical team treating him returned to Pyongyang on April 19.
The US is now monitoring reports that Kim’s sister, Kim Yo-jong could take over if the dictator dies as top government officials generally want the Kim family to continue ruling the country if anything happens to Kim..
Kim’s movements were last reported by KCNA, the country’s official news channel, on 11th April, when he chaired a meeting of the ruling party.
