No signs Kim Jong Un recently had health issues, South Korean spy agency says

Intelligence service provides no evidence for its assessment, however

South Korea's intelligence services have seen no indicators suggesting North Korean leader Kim Jong Un recently experienced health issues or underwent heart surgery, lawmakers told local press on Wednesday.

The assessment, provided by the National Intelligence Service (NIS) to a parliamentary intelligence committee, follows other parts of the South Korean government repeatedly insisting there was no cause for concern about Kim's health in recent weeks.
