SEOUL, October 28. /TASS/. North Korea’s leader Kim Jong-un is recovering after a surgery to remove a cyst from his ankle, the Yonhap news agency reported on Tuesday citing South Korea’s agency.
The operation was conducted between September and October by a foreign doctor, who had been invited to the Communist country, the report said, citing two lawmakers of the South Korea’s ruling Saenuri Party and the main opposition New Politics Alliance for Democracy.
The comments were made after a closed-door parliamentary audit of the National Intelligence Service in southern Seoul.
The 31-year-old Kim had not appeared in public since attending a concert with his wife in Pyongyang on September 3. He was absent from a major political meeting in Pyongyang, the session of the Supreme People’s Assembly, in late September.
Kim’s absence from public view, the longest since he inherited power after his father’s death in December 2011, had fuelled speculation over his health. Before his disappearance, state television had shown Kim walking with a limp. After he did not appear at a session of North Korea's top legislature, state television for the first time acknowledged that he was suffering from “discomfort.”
