Rare! Photos of South Korean President Appear in Korean Official Media

  Moon Jae -in appeared in North Korea's official media (North Korea) today, with four photographs on Rodong Sinmun , the official mouthpiece of the ruling North Korean party. This is a rare thing to happen.

As usual, the headlines on the front page of the newspaper are filled with the activities of the North Korean leader, Kim Jong Un – in this edition, Kim gets a gift from the Air Force commander Zimbabwe who visited.

But the front page of the newspaper also posted seven photos of the departure and arrival of the North Korean diplomatic delegation to the South Korean Olympic Games, led by the head of the ceremonial state Kim Yong Nam and sister Kim Jong Un, Kim Yo Jong

Inside, the media displayed other photographs of their encounter with Moon and the opening ceremony of the Winter Olympics – four photographs of which featured Moon who was named president.

As reported by news agency AFP Saturday (10/2/2018), it is very unusual for the North Korean media to post a photo of a South Korean leader. It is also rare for the North Korean media to name the South Korean leader as president – as long as this North Korean media calls him chief executive or another term.

The official North Korean news agency Korean Central News Agency ( KCNA ) this time also mentions Moon as president. Nam Yong Nam Yo Jong is the first names mentioned KCNA in his report on the opening ceremony of the Winter Olympics in South Korea. Moon just appeared in the fifth paragraph: "Also present Moon Jae In and South Korean political and social figures."

But the media did not mention who sat in the same area as Moon and as well Kim Yong Nam and Kim Yo Jong. "The audience cheered and applauded when North and South Korean athletes entered the arena together behind a unification flag," wrote Kronna . ] <! –
