North Korean Leader Kim Jong-un reveals his daughter in hint of extending family rule.
Kim Jong-un apparently presents his young daughter at public events. The South Korean spy service has suspected that Kim recently brought forth his daughter to public events, which represents him showing that one of his children will one day inherit the leadership in North Korea. This would be the third generation of power transfers to a Kim family member in Pyongyang.
During the major events in North Korea, Kim was photographed escorting his daughter. For the past few months, some major events have been the ballistic missile launch site, a photo session with North Korean weapon scientists, and a tour of a missile storage facility.
The North Korea’s state news media and press called the girl Kim’s “Most beloved child.” She probably is said to be 9 or 10 years of age. The debate has been arrived over the nation that if she is being groomed as his heir.
North Korea has been ruled by one of the World’s longest-running dynastic dictatorships. Three generations of the Kim Family have ruled with absolute authority, using heavy repression and a system of patronage that ensures support from elites and the military.
Three generations of Kim held the position of supreme leader in North Korea:
Three generations of Kims have held the position of supreme leader in North Korea since the end of World War II and Korea’s liberation from Japanese colonial rule. Kim Il-sung was the founding father of North Korea, where he ruled from 1948 until his death in 1994. He was succeeded by his son, Kim Jong-il, who served for seventeen years until a fatal heart attack in late 2011. Leadership then passed to Kim Jong-il’s twenty-eight-year-old son, Kim Jong-un, in 2012.
South Korea’s National Intelligence Service interprete:
South Korea’s National Intelligence Service (NIS) interpreted that taking Kim’s daughter to public places was to imply hereditary power transitions within his family, said Yoo Sang-bum, one of the legislators. South Korea’s news reporters reported that Kim has three children. In his daughter’s first appearance in November, the NIS told legislators that she is Kim’s second child, Ju Ae.
Some agencies claims that Kim’s daughter unveiling at the missile launch site appeared to reflect Kim’s thought to commit protecting the security of North Korea’s future generations in the face to stand off with the United States.
