North Korean leader Kim Jong-un is said to be so paranoid about his privacy that he has his own TOILET wherever he goes.

The leader of the notoriously secretive state is believed to have his very own personal toilet to stop people examining his excrement for clues about his health, according to a former insider.

Lee Yun-keol, who worked in a North Korean Guard Command unit before coming to South Korea in 2005, told the Washington Post: ‘Rather than using a public restroom, the leader of North Korea has a personal toilet that follows him around when he travels.

‘The leader’s excretions contain information about his health status so they can’t be left behind.’

Lee was speaking ahead of a planned summit between North and South Korea on Friday.

Kim will meet with the South’s president Moon-Jae-in as the pair discuss a possible peace between the two sides.


The talks on the southern side of the border village of Panmunjom are expected to focus on North Korea’s nuclear programme.

After signing the guestbook and taking a photo together at Peace House, the venue for Friday’s summit, the two leaders will start formal talks.

They will later plant a pine tree on the border using a mixture of soil from both counties’ mountains and water from their respective rivers.

The leaders will meet again in the afternoon and later attend a banquet, he added.

The United States will be watching the talks closely for any information that will help them when Donald Trump meets with Kim for his own summit in the next two months.

Frank Aum, a former senior adviser for North Korea at the Pentagon, said: ‘Any time we have an opportunity to be in the same room or the same vicinity as Kim Jong-un and his entourage is definitely an intelligence-gathering opportunity.’

Friday’s summit and Kim’s planned meeting with President Trump were arranged after Kim recently expressed a wiliness to put his nuclear programme up for negotiation after a year of nuclear and missile tests.
