Kim Jong-un, in a vegetative state after heart surgery?
Kim Jong-un is in a vegetative state, as a result of the cardiovascular operation he underwent at the beginning of the month, according to the Japanese press. The weekly Shukan Gendai quotes a Chinese doctor sent to North Korea as part of a team that has to treat the dictator and claims that the delay of a simple procedure left Kim in a very bad condition.
However, the North Korean press did not talk about the condition of Kim Jong-un (36 years old) and did not say where the dictator is, despite numerous rumors that he is in a very bad condition. However, Kim collapsed during a visit to the rural area of the communist country, at the beginning of April. A Chinese doctor in Pyongyang said a stem was fitted to the dictator by a North Korean doctor, but the operation failed. He is now in a vegetative state.
South Korean and American officials have denied that Kim Jong-un is in danger of death.
The Japanese press article appears after a week of speculation about Kim Jong-un's health. Initially, the South Korean publications headlined that the dictator is recovering from a heart operation, citing North Korean sources. But South Korean and Chinese officials denied that he was in danger after the intervention. For his part, Donald Trump hinted that his North Korean counterpart was feeling well, and CIA officials said the US government had no reason to believe he was dying.
