The North Korean leader Kim Jong Un continues his tour of the Russian Far East. The North Korean dictator, who barely leaves his territory, arrived in Russia on Tuesday on his famous “bunker” train and has already met with his Russian counterpart, Vladimir Putin, with whom he exchanged rifles.
This Saturday, Kim was with the Russian Defense Minister, Sergei Shoigu, in the city of Vladivostok, there, both inspected a hypersonic missile system. They smilingly observed some of the nuclear bombers that the Russian Army has before boarding a warship
Once again, a young man accompanying him with a notepad could be seen in Kim’s most direct entourage. He stands out among the military uniform and medals. The North Korean, dressed in a suit, seems to point out everything the controversial North Korean leader says. He is not his translator. He is the “prompter” of it.
The Dutch newspaper “Telegraaf” has noticed the presence of this scorer. According to him he explained Remco Breukerspecialized in Korea at Leiden University, transcribing Kim Kong Un’s words is a sign of respect.
“Everything the great leader says is so special in North Korea that it must be written down“Breuker tells the Dutch newspaper. What’s more, he talks about it being a kind of custom for North Koreans, a way of “showing their loyalty” to Kim Jong Un.
Likewise, the expert emphasizes that Senior officials also take notes during public speeches by North Korea’s head of state. In another sign of veneration for the North Korean leader.
However, Breuker assures that the notes taken by this young man will not serve as official transcriptions of Kim’s speeches or words.
And everything has its process in the hermit kingdom. “The notes are rewritten and edited, and that is how they are then reported in the state media,” concludes Breuker.
Apparently, during his visit this Saturday, the North Korean supreme leader would be “deeply impressed” by the advance of Russian aviation and technology.
