North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un returns to the public scene after a 20-day absence, as reported by the North Korean state agency KCNA. Kim’s absence from major public events since April 11 has stirred speculation about his health.

Kim attended a ceremony to celebrate the completion of a fertilizer plant in the town of Sunchon, South Phyongan province, the North Korean agency quoted by Reuters detailed.

His last public appearance had been on April 11, chairing a meeting of the political table of the ruling Workers’ Party, and it was striking that he did not participate in the events commemorating the 108th birthday of his grandfather, Kim Il-sung, on 15 of April.
