Kim received the cardiovascular system procedure because of “excessive smoking, obesity, and overwork,” according to the news site, and is now receiving treatment in a villa in Hyangsan County following his procedure.
National Security Adviser Robert O’Brien said the US is “keeping a close eye” on reports about Kim’s health.”We’re monitoring these reports very closely,” O’Brien said during an interview with Fox News Tuesday. “As you know, North Korea is a very closed society,” he said
CONTINGENCY PLAN OF UNITED STATE US
The U.S. government has extensive contingency plans in place for an eventual death of North Korean leader KIM JONG UN that factor in expectations of a mass-scale humanitarian crisis inside the country, Fox News has learned.
Sources discussed those plans amid conflicting reports about the reclusive North Korean leader’s health. Those same sources urge caution about these reports, which have claimed he’s facing serious health issues after a cardiovascular procedure.
While his condition is unclear, a well-placed defense intelligence source told Fox News on Tuesday that the U.S. government has extensive plans in place for when Kim is gone, taking into account all the that could complications arise from his eventual death. He added that: “People should know we have a great intelligence community, the president, vice president, Secretary Pompeo, Secretary Esper, General Milley, we’ve got a lot of watchtowers during this coronavirus crisis making sure America is safe whether it’s from a virus or adversary abroad., so we are keeping a close eye on North Korea as we are in other parts of the world.”
Andrei Lankov, a professor at Kookmin University in South Korea and an expert in North Korean affairs, says very few people know the intimate details of Kim’s personal life — and they are “not inclined to talk about it because they would much prefer to remain alive.” This is a very murky business,” he said. “They (people close to Kim) have very little to gain by telling everybody what they know.”The debate about Kim’s health and whereabouts is a timely reminder on an important caveat that should accompany nearly all stories on the inner workings of North Korea: The country is a black hole when it comes to gathering independent and trustworthy news. but in the afternoon north Korean president holding its all offices.
