Kim Jong Un has reportedly made his first public appearance in more than a month.
The North Korean leader gave “field guidance” to a newly built residential district and visited the Natural Energy Institute of the State Academy of Sciences, state news agency KCNA said early Tuesday.
While KCNA reported Kim had a photo session with scientists, it did not publish those photographs, nor any video of his visits. The news agency also did not report when the North Korean leader purportedly made those visits.
Before this absence, Kim’s longest disappearance from public view as Supreme Leader was 24 days between June 7 and July 1, 2012. His second longest absence was for 29 days between July 28 and August 27, 2011 — while his father was still alive, NK News said.
