  • Chinese medical experts to advise on health of N. Korea's Kim

It was noteworthy that Kim did not participate in the celebrations for the first time on this national holiday, and North Korean state media has never spoken about Kim in his report on a missile trial last week.

China has sent a delegation, including medical professionals, to North Korea to advise on Kim Jong Un, a report said Saturday, amid rumors the young North Korean leader is seriously ill. We have good relations with North Korea, and I have a good relationship with Kim Jong-un.

The liaison department could not be reached for comment yesterday. China's foreign ministry did not immediately respond to a request for comment late on Friday.

Recently there has been renewed speculation on DPRK leader Kim Jong Un's health, boosted by a CNN report that he had undergone "surgery". It cited one unnamed source in North Korea.

South Korean officials say they have no evidence to suggest Kim is sick. South Korean officials said they had detected no signs of unusual activity in North Korea.

"I think the report was incorrect", the president said during Thursday's daily White House briefing, adding that he had heard it was based on "old documents".

Quoting a South Korean source, Reuters reported that intelligence indicated Kim was alive and was likely to soon make a public appearance.

The source didn't comment on Chinese involvement or Kim's condition. Hong Kong Satellite Television reported that Kim was dead, though there has been no confirmation from USA sources at this point.

A U.S. State department spokeswoman had no comment.

U.S. secretary of state Mike Pompeo told Fox News: "I don't have anything I can share with you tonight, but the American people should know we're watching the situation very keenly". Reuters has not been able to independently confirm any details on Kim's whereabouts or condition. In 2014, he vanished for more than a month and North Korean state TV later showed him walking with a limp.

Kim, 36, a cigarette smoker with a history of health problems, has gained a significant amount of weight since taking power after the death of his father, Kim Jong Il, in 2011. North Korea is under heavy worldwide sanctions due to its nuclear and missile programs.

Pompeo flew to North Korea four times in 2018 as he arranged historic summits between Trump and Kim after more than a half century of enmity between the two countries.
