China has sent a medical team to North Korea to provide advice to Pyongyang as part of the follow-up to the health of leader Kim Jong-un, according to Russia’s website today..
According to the sources, a team headed by a senior official of the Communist Party of China International Relations division has left Beijing for North Korea..
Reuters added that it was unable to obtain an official comment from the mentioned section of the Communist Party or from the Chinese Foreign Ministry.
This comes against the backdrop of conflicting reports about the health of the North Korean leader, as media sources in South Korea talked about receiving treatment for cardiovascular disease this month..
But South Korean and Chinese officials later denied the authenticity of the reports, as US President Donald Trump questioned, and a South Korean intelligence source told Reuters that Kim was alive and might appear publicly soon..
