Foreign Correspondents Ep.186
Intentions behind Kim Jong-un’s recent absence

North Korea fired gunshots in the Demilitarized Zone and criticized South Korea’s routine military exercises, shortly after its leader Kim Jong-un resurfaced from a nearly three-week absence. The regime has focused on diplomacy in recent weeks by sending messages to the leaders of China and Russia. Meanwhile, it is yet to respond to Seoul’s proposal for inter-Korean cooperation on COVID-19 response. In this week’s edition of Foreign Correspondents, we sit down with our panel of journalists to take a deep dive into the possible reasons for Kim’s disappearance and overtures to Pyeongyang’s traditional allies.
