Default With Kim out of sight, North Korean top brass pay snap visit to South

Quote:
Seoul (CNN) -- With Kim Jong Un out of sight for a month, a troika from the pinnacle of North Korea's leadership popped down to South Korea for a last-minute jaunt on Saturday.

And they delivered a diplomatic bonbon.

The three officials told South Korea that Pyongyang is willing to hold a new round of high-level meetings between late October and early November, South Korea's Unification Ministry said in a statement Saturday.

"Within my memory ... there was never ever such a high-level visit. Never," said North Korean analyst Andrei Kankov, from Seoul's Kookmin University.

Kankov said two of the three visitors "are essentially number two and number three in North Korean official hierarchy."

Right behind Kim, the "Dear Leader" himself.

Short notice, extensive media coverage

Kim had gained a lot of weight and is said to be in "discomfort".
But hey hopefully they will change all their current policies and when he awakes from his coma he will have to buy that book:

"Democracy for Dummies"

After the purge of so many high level military people I would hope they assassinate the bastard and reach out to the south for unification. The north Korean people have suffered enough.

what went through my mind was if a few who are disgusted by him have just stood back and honored his every whim even if it kills him.
He's bound to have health problems that have crept up being so rotund.

You would think this HAS to be related...

North Korea capital 'under lockdown' amid rumours of threat to Kim Jong-un

Quote:
The North Korean capital has been placed under lockdown, according to sources with Pyongyang, raising new questions about the stability of Kim Jong-un's regime.

Quoting sources within North Korea, the respected New Focus International news web site has reported that a ban on new travel passes to leave or enter Pyongyang was introduced on September 27.

And while the North Korean authorities have in the past limited access to the capital, the latest restrictions even apply to permanent residents of Pyongyang, who are by definition the elite of the regime.

"This sort of action suggests there has either been an attempted coup or that the authorities there have uncovered some sort of plot against the leadership," Toshimitsu Shigemura, a professor at Tokyo's Waseda University and an authority on North Korean affairs, told The Telegraph.

"If it is a military-backed coup, then the situation in Pyongyang will be very dangerous and I have heard reports that Kim has been moved out of the capital," he said.
