North Korea’s Kim reappears with his daughter – EFE Noticias

Seoul, Nov 27 (EFE).- North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and his daughter have reappeared in public for the second time in a week, posing for photos with officials involved in an intercontinental ballistic missile launch.

The state media published the new photos on Sunday.

The photos show Kim posing next to a girl, who is believed to be his daughter and named Kim Ju-ae, dressed in a black outer coat, who looks like the first lady, Ri Sol-ju.

The official Korea Central News Agency said when Kim appeared at the photo session “with his beloved daughter, all the participants broke into stormy cheers of hurrah.”

The news agency said contributors to the successful test-fire of the new-type ICBM Hwasongpho-17 missile were all present.

The North Korean military carried out the test on Nov.18.

The North Korean media carried pictures of Kim and his daughter for the first time a day after the test of the intercontinental ballistic missile.

An undated photo released by the official North Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) on 27 November 2022 shows North Korean leader Kim Jong-un (2-R) walking with his daughter, presumed to be his second child, Ju-ae (R), during a photo session with the contributors to the successful test-fire of new-type ICBM Hwasongpho-17 at an undisclosed location in North Korea.

In the first public appearance of the girl, she could be seen dressed in a white coat listening to her father who was instructing officials around.

Others showed her walking hand in hand with him next to the shuttle of the projectile.

North Korean media rarely publish information about close relatives of the Kim dynasty that ruled the country with an iron hand since the 1940s.

South Korean intelligence experts believe Kim would have had three children with Ri Sol-Ju around 2010, 2013, and 2017.

Following one of his extravagant visits to North Korea to meet with Kim Jong-un, former American basketball player Dennis Rodman said publicly in 2013 that he held “his daughter Ju-ae,” a baby at the time. EFE
