Seoul, May 22 (IANS) | Publish Date: 5/22/2020 1:18:44 PM IST

South Korea on Friday said it was closely monitoring the whereabouts of the North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, who has been missing again from the public eye for three weeks.

On May 1, Kim attended a ceremony to mark the inauguration of a fertilizer plant in Sunchon following a three-week absence from the public eye, putting an end to rumours that he was sick or dead.
Since then, photos of Kim have been missing from North Korean media reports and the matter came up at a press conference held on Friday by the spokesperson of South Korea’s Unification Ministry, Yoh Sang-key.
“The relevant authorities are keeping a close watch,” Yoh told reporters.
“There was a time in January when he was also absent from the public view for 21 days. So, we are watching the situation over his absence from media reports,” he added.
The 36-year-old North Korean dictator has been absent from the public more frequently than ever this year.
