Trump promises Kim Jong Un protection from Central Intelligence Agency spying

Trump promises Kim Jong Un protection from Central Intelligence Agency spying

On Tuesday, North Korea's official news agency (KCNA) announced the deal 'of great historic significance is now on the verge of turning into a dead document as the US shuns its implementation'.

Meanwhile, his former privileged position in the family's hereditary dynasty was overtaken by his youngest half-brother, Kim Jong-un, who assumed power shortly after their father's death in December 2011. "Kim Jong-nam provided information to them, usually meeting his handlers in Singapore or Malaysia", Washington Post journalist Anna Fifield wrote in The Great Successor: The Divinely Perfect Destiny for Brilliant Comrade Kim Jong-un. "I think that something will happen".

But US intelligence agencies concluded that Kim Jong-nam was ill-suited to fill such a role, several former US officials said.

North Korea's leader Kim Jong Un, right, walks with President Donald Trump during a break in talks at their historic US-North Korea summit, at the Capella Hotel on Sentosa island in Singapore. Based in the Chinese enclave Macau, he was the oldest son of Kim Jong Il and was thought to be the heir apparent until he went into exile in the early 2000's.

North Korea has so far denied those claims.

The Journal cited an unnamed "person knowledgeable about the matter" and said that many details of Kim Jong Nam's relationship with America's foreign spy agency remained unclear.

The former officials also said Mr Kim had been nearly certainly in contact with security services of other countries, particularly China's, the Journal said.

Reports confirmed that the victim was from North Carolina , but his name has yet to be released to the public. Texas had the second highest number of fatalities from lightning strikes with a total of 20.

Reuters, who reported the WSJ story, said that it could not independently confirm it and that the Central Intelligence Agency declined to comment.

The fact that the CIA held meetings with Kim Jong-nam illustrates the lengths United States intelligence will go to gather information about the hermetic country. They had been accused of colluding with four North Koreans who prosecutors said had fled the country the day of the attack.

"Picture Kim Jong Un as the bullseye with family, friends and associates being the concentric rings going outward".

USA officials told the newspaper that it was highly unlikely that Kim knew any top secrets or details about the inner workings within the North Korean regime.

Malaysian prosecutors eventually dropped the murder charges against them and Indonesian Siti Aisyah was released in March this year while her Vietnamese co-accused Doan Thi Huong was freed in May.

North Korea and American relations have improved in recent months, after Mr Trump met with Mr Kim at two summits in Asia after tensions escalated over North Korea's nuclear capability.
