The rumors about North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un’s health appear to have been true.
The nation of North Korea has finally admitted that Kim Jong Un has been suffering “hardships” as the result of his heart surgery. And not only that, but a special team of doctors has just been imported into the hermit country to prevent Kim Jong Un from dying, according to a report by Daily Mail.
A Medical Emergency
The government of China has just reportedly dispatched a team of experts to North Korea that includes medical experts to advise on North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, according to three people familiar with the situation.
The sources declined to be identified given the sensitivity of the matter.
However, according to a report by Newsweek, North Korea does admit that the situation is bad:
“North Korea’s state-run media has acknowledged the country was experiencing difficulties… Such rumors often swirl around a country known for its secretive nature, but international attention was fueled by a Monday report by the Seoul-based Daily NK website—a largely North Korean defector-led outlet that receives funding from a U.S. Congress-linked NGO among other institutions—that cited an anonymous source saying Kim had undergone heart surgery.”
Although the United States has no concrete evidence that Kim Jong Un is in bad health, these details absolutely make the situation seem a lot worse than previously thought.
North Korea Could Break Apart
Although Kim Jong Un is an extremely ruthless dictator, if he dies, it could end up hurting the entire world.
It’s very unlikely that the country of North Korea is prepared to replace Kim, which could lead to an outright civil war by military leaders looking to take his place.
Needless to say, the last thing the world needs is for more problems caused by North Korean forces.
As a result, many leaders, including President Donald Trump, have wished Kim Jong Un good health. Trump even said that if it weren’t for Kim, our nations would be at war right now.
