Geng Shuang Expressed Doubts About The Information In The Media About The Deterioration Of Kim Jong-un's Health
Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said at a briefing on Tuesday that he had seen media publications about the deteriorating health of North Korean state Council Chairman Kim Jong-UN, but did not know the sources of this information.
"I have seen reports in the media about this, but I do not know who is the source of their information. It is only possible that what you just said is the source," he said.
"I want to say that China and North Korea are long-standing friendly partners. China intends to follow the same path with the DPRK to promote the continuous development of Sino-Korean relations," the diplomat said.
Earlier, CNN, citing a source in the US administration, reported that the United States is studying intelligence data on the deterioration of the health of the Chairman of the State Council of the DPRK, Kim Jong-un, after allegedly undergoing surgery. According to a CNN source, the health of the leader of the people's democratic Republic may allegedly be in real danger.
