North Korean defector apologises for saying Kim Jong Un was too ill he could not stand

A previous senior North Korean diplomat has apologized for saying Kim Jong-un was likely so sick ‘he can’t stand up without anyone else or walk appropriately’ – only three days before the despot was seen smoking a cigarette at an open occasion.

North Korea’s previous delegate representative to Britain, Thae Yong Ho, disclosed to CNN Kim’s ‘irregular’ nonappearance from a decision party masterpiece on April 15 flagged the despot must be truly weakened.

Thae fled to South Korea in 2016 and was one of two turncoats chose for parliament a month ago.

In an announcement, he said he felt ‘fault and overwhelming duty’ regarding making his unwarranted cases.

‘I am mindful that one reason why a large number of you decided in favor of me as a legislator is with the desires for a precise examination and projections on North Korean issues’, he said. ‘Whatever the reasons, I am sorry to everybody.’

Kim disappeared from state media for weeks, sparking a flurry of speculation about his health and whereabouts, and worry about prospects for the nuclear-armed state in the event of an unexpected succession.

But on Saturday, North Korean media published photographs of Kim at a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the inauguration of a fertilizer plant.

His re-emergence came as a blow to the credibility of some high-profile defectors from the North who had speculated that Kim was suffering from a grave illness or could even be dead.
