North Korean’s leader Kim Jong-un made a public appearance for the first time on October 9, after the US and North Korea failed to reach mutual consent during their nuclear talks. Kim Jong-un was caught on camera during his visit to a farm that is under military governance. The leader can be seen smiling with a farm in the background. The state media reported the news.
The delegation from the US and North Korea met in Stockholm the previous week in order to have working-level talks over the nuclear deal. However, after much deliberation, it was reported that the talks fell through. Kim Myong Gil, who headed the Korean delegation blamed the American delegation for pursuing the talks without any negotiations and rather “empty-handed”, while maintaining the old stance and attitude on the issue.
According to a foreign media source, Kim visited several places during his first public appearance. The North-Korean leader visited a greenhouse that has recently been constructed and also spent some time at the experimental cultivation plot, where he was seen smiling and posing for photos. The statement was released by the Korean Central News Agency along with his photographs as reported by ANI. One can acknowledge the rare sight of the North-Korean leader smiling. The statement also said that the leader discussed patriotic topics for a long time.
The meeting held in Stockholm was considered the first of its kind after both the nations did not reach any mutual decision during the second summit which took place in Hanoi this year. The summit was meant to address the increasing tension between the two nations after North-Korean armed its nuclear missiles towards America. There is an extreme interest mainly in Japan and South Korea to see if Trump and Kim could strike a deal. Trump over time proved that he is ready to take risks with North Korea which no other American leader has taken in the past even though critics think otherwise.
