There has been massive amounts of speculation on the whereabouts of the North Korean leader.
South Korea continued to pour gas on mounting speculations about the health of North Korea's leader Kim Jong Un, telling CNN he is "alive and well."
"Our government position is firm," Moon Chung-in, the top foreign policy adviser to South Korean President Moon Jae-in, told CNN. "Kim Jong Un is alive and well. He has been staying in the Wonsan area since April 13. No suspicious movements have so far been detected."
Questions were raised about Kim's well-being after he missed the celebration of his grandfather's birthday on April 15 and TMZ reported days later that he had died.
CNN reported earlier in the week that the United States is monitoring intelligence that Kim is "in grave danger after a surgery," according to a US official. Another US official told CNN Monday that the concerns about Kim's health are credible, but their severity is hard to assess.
