Kim Yo-Jong’

Seoul: Kim Yo-jong, sister of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, appears to have been promoted to a leadership role, South Korea’s spy agency said on Tuesday. The status of Kim Yong-chol, who served as a chief negotiator in nuclear talks with the US, also seems to have fallen, following the no-deal summit between the Kim Jong-un and American President Donald Trump, the National Intelligence Service (NIS) said in a closed-door briefing to lawmakers. Kim Yo-jong, who has assumed the No. 2 post of the ruling Workers’ Party of Korea’s (WPK) propaganda and agitation department, was spotted sitting next to Kim Yong-chol to watch the country’s propaganda performance last week, an event to celebrate Chinese President Xi Jinping’s visit to the North, reports Yonhap News Agency.
