North Korean leader Kim Jong-un is believed to be staying north of Pyongyang as he recovers from an undisclosed illness, South Korean Defense Minister Han Min-koo said Tuesday.
Kim has not been seen in public for over a month.
During a parliamentary audit of his ministry on Tuesday, Han was asked about the whereabouts of the North Korean leader.
He said some media reports about Kim are true and some are false, but "I believe that we get highly credible information from the intelligence unit of the defense ministry. We are doing all we can to grasp the situation."
