New York: Kim Yong-chol, a former North Korean spymaster and US Secretary of State Mike Pompeos counterpart in recent diplomatic contacts between Pyongyang and Washington, resurfaced in public, undermining a South Korean newspapers report that he was banished to forced labour in a re-education camp. The North’s official Korean Central News Agency on Monday included Kim Yong-chol’s name on a list of officials who accompanied the country’s Kim Jong-un to an art performance given by the wives of military officers on Sunday, reports The New York Times. But on a roster of officials attending the event, Kim Yong-chol’s name was listed 10th among 12 officials named. (IANS)
