Kim Jong-un spotted with mystery daughter as she holds hands at missile launch

The elusive and mysterious daughter of North Korea dictator Kim Jong-un was seen at a missile launch in her 'first official appearance with her father'.

Propaganda pictures from the historic moment showcased the pair at a missile launch, with the despot also joined by his wife, Ri Sol-ju.

Although official reports make no mention of her, it is clear that the dictator's only daughter, Kim Ju-ae, was present at the event also with the rest of her family.

An expert on the North Korean elite has said there is "no chance in hell" that the woman he holds hands with is anyone but his daughter.

Expert Michael Madden said: "It is implicit in the photos that this is his daughter. There is no chance in hell he is tooling around a WMD site with random girl.

Madden, who also runs a North Korea Leadership Watch website, has also claimed that the North Korean despot was sending a message with his string of family missile photos.

He added: "The nuclear weapons programme and Kim Jong-un’s accomplishments around them is a family legacy for whomever his successor is.

"So, what we are seeing, is Kim telecasting that fourth-generation hereditary succession is highly likely to happen."

Madden, who has not yet made photo comparisons of the new releases to that of previously existing propaganda, continued: "This is intended to communicate it to the wider North Korean elite as well as to foreign governments."

He warned also that the newly released photos were a sign that conflict was brewing among the ruling class, adding: "So an event like this is intended to stop those plans in their tracks.

"And I would posit that bringing out the daughter would be the final phase of that effort.

"“It represents a degree of comfort on Kim Jong-un’s part to bring his daughter to an event and have her photograph appear in real time in North Korean state media."
