    It is reported by the Yonhap news agency.

    What is known

    One of the members of the South Korean parliament briefly told reporters about the report of representatives of the National Intelligence Service in a closed session of parliament.

    Intelligence agencies have denied rumors that the North Korean regime is using a doppelganger for Kim Jong-un, but noted that he lost about 20 kg. Such an assessment was made by the intelligence services as a result of the use of artificial intelligence and other scientific measurement methods.

    Also, the scouts told an interesting detail: at the last several official events, Kim Jong-un ordered to remove portraits of Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il.

    The state of health of the North Korean leader often becomes the subject of speculation and speculation, because if he is unable to lead the country, the regime will face unpredictable changes. No successor has been officially presented.

    DPRK: brief reference

    • For many years North Korea has been one of the most closed countries in the world. This is one of the few countries where the communists still remain in power.
    • The DPRK was formed in 1948 against the backdrop of the chaos that reigned after the end of World War II. The dominant figure in its history was the “great leader” Kim Il Sung, who for almost half a century determined the country’s policy.
    • After the Korean War, Kim Il Sung began to instill in the country his own philosophy of Juche (self-reliance), which formed the basis of all development in North Korea.
    • The cult of the personality of the leaders reigns in the country. After the death of the “great leader”, power passed to his son Kim Jong Il, although the post of head of state was “forever assigned” to Kim Il Sung.
    • The country is currently officially ruled by Kim Il Sung’s grandson, Kim Jong-un.
    • Decades of tight government control have led to a stagnant economy. Aid organizations estimate that since the mid-1990s, up to two million people have died due to severe food shortages caused by natural disasters and economic policy mistakes. To feed the population, the country receives humanitarian food aid from abroad.
    • The totalitarian regime of the DPRK is also accused of systematic violations of human rights. News of torture, public executions, the use of slave labor, forced abortions and the killing of babies in “forced labor” camps are coming from the country. The US-based human rights group Amnesty International estimates that there are as many as 200,000 political prisoners in North Korea.
    • For years, Pyongyang has called every new South Korean government an American “puppet,” but South Korean President Kim Dae-jung’s visit in 2000 marked a thaw in relations. Seoul’s proclaimed “solar policy” towards the DPRK is to bring about change in the country through dialogue and aid.
    • Pyongyang’s decision in 2002 to restart its nuclear reactor and expel international inspectors from the country came as a blow to timid attempts to improve relations with the rest of the world. It is believed that the DPRK has a small number of nuclear charges and is working to enrich uranium. North Korea itself has already declared itself a nuclear power and is actively developing its missile program.
    • In October 2006, the DPRK announced that it had successfully conducted a nuclear test, which caused alarm in neighboring countries.
    • As a result of negotiations, which had been interrupted and reopened over the years, an agreement was reached in February 2007 whereby Pyongyang agreed to shut down its nuclear reactor in exchange for fuel and food. In July of the same year, inspectors of the United Nations International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) were admitted to the DPRK, who confirmed the shutdown of the Yongbyon reactor. However, the implementation of the agreements is periodically disrupted, and Pyongyang from time to time resorts to blackmail.
    • In terms of the size of the regular army, the DPRK occupies one of the first places in the world, and the whole life in the country is imbued with the spirit of militarism. However, according to available data, the level of training, discipline and equipment of the North Korean armed forces is very low.

    We previously reported that North Korea is ready to resume “nuclear” negotiations with the United States in exchange for expensive liquors and costumes.

    Also recall Kim Jong-un complains about “the worst situation in history” in the DPRK.
