NSA indicates no transfer of power in North Korea

Posted on by

The United States has not seen any definitive indication of a transfer of power in North Korea, where state media have not mentioned leader Kim Jong Un’s activities in weeks, a top U.S. official said in an interview broadcast on Sunday.

Kim’s absence from the public eye has fueled speculation over the state of his health and whether he may have been sidelined in a power struggle.

“Obviously we are watching very carefully what’s happening in North Korea,” national security adviser Susan Rice said in an interview broadcast on NBC’s Meet the Press. “We have not seen any indications of a transfer of power at this point in North Korea that we view as definitive but we’ll continue to watch it carefully.”
