Supreme smoke break: Kim Jong-un stops for cigarette en route to Hanoi peace summit (VIDEO)
The surreptitiously-filmed footage captured the North Korean leader enjoying a brief puff on the platform at the Nanning rail station in south central China, en route to Hanoi, in a journey which ultimately took more than two days (instead of a flight which would only have lasted several hours).
The North Korean leader’s sister, Kim Yo-jong, was on hand to provide a crystal ashtray and avoid causing any offense by tipping ash on Chinese soil. His wife Ri Sol-ju was also spotted chatting away to members of the entourage.
Kim Yo-jong became a viral sensation after her terse, non-verbal standoff with US Vice President Mike Pence at the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics in South Korea. Former General Kim Yong-chol, another familiar face among Kim’s current entourage spotted in China, participated in the first summit with Trump in Singapore last summer.Also on rt.com ‘No rush!’ US vows to keep sanctions on N.
