North Korea’s supreme leader Kim Jong Un made his first public appearance in 20 days, ending the global rumours about his death that were triggered due to his absence.

Kim Jong Un celebrated the completion of a fertilizer factory near Pyongyang, informed North Korea’s official Korean Central News Agency on Saturday.

The state media agency reported that Kim Jong Un attended the ceremony on Friday in Sunchon and he was accompanied by several other senior officials.

The North Korean supreme leader was also accompanied by his sister Kim Yo Jong.

North Korea’s official newspaper Rodong Sinmun published several photos of Kim Jong Un where he was seen smiling while he looked around the factory.

The newspaper also showed Kim Jong Un cutting a red ribbon and his sister looking from behind.

If looked closely, the images gave no clear sign Kim Jong Un being in discomfort.

This was Kim Jon Un’s first public appearance since April 11.
