Kim Jong-UN for the first time did not come to the ceremony on the occasion of the birthday of Kim Il sung. Analysts have put forward two versions

North Korean leader Kim Jong-UN, contrary to tradition, on April 15 did not participate in the celebration of the birthday of his grandfather Kim Il sung. As written the official publication of the workers ‘ party of Korea “Rodong Sinmun”, Kim Jong Eun sent a basket of flowers to the mausoleum in Pyongyang, where the ceremony took place.

The Agency AFP notes that the behavior of the leader is very unusual, as the birthday of North Korea founder Kim Il sung has always been the key date in the political calendar of the country. Propaganda called Kim Jong UN the successor of the course of his grandfather, emphasizing their external similarity.

Ignoring ceremony can be a signal that the current head of North Korea will pursue an independent policy and will want to distance themselves from the personality cult of his grandfather and father, Kim Jong Il. This opinion the Agency was expressed by political analyst and a defector from the North of the Peninsula Ahn Chan-Il. He said that “idolatry” contrary to the intent of the Kim Jong-UN to turn North Korea into a “normal state”.

Another version of the absence of Kim Jong-UN in celebration called quarantine in connection with the coronavirus, despite the fact that North Korea has stated that cases of infection in the country. Rachel Lee, a former analyst on North Korean issues in the U.S. government, believes this cause is unlikely. Kim Jong-UN was quite active in the last days, in particular, presided over the meeting of the political Bureau of the ruling party on April 11.
