Kim Jong-Il’s health
North Korea is preparing itself to make an announcement tomorrow according to a Japanese newsppaer, quoting the national Defense Ministery, about the truth regarding the rumours about Kim Jong-Il’s health.
Looks like the photos NK distributed, weren’t of Kim Jong-Il, as there are no signs of the brain surgery he underwent less than two months ago.
SEOUL, South Korea — The 66-year-old man in the photos appeared the picture of health, full of vigor despite reports he underwent brain surgery less than two months ago.
He was surrounded by serious, crisply uniformed soldiers and in the background there was plenty of verdant greenery, more reminiscent of summer than mid-autumn in a temperate clime.
To seasoned North Korea watchers, the country’s weekend release of photos of leader Kim Jong Il for the first time since the middle of August are raising a host of questions about his health — as well as the motive and timing behind their publication.
