Liberty Korea Post has obtained information that NK Elite Guard Command had dispatched an advance team to Seoul last October under the premise of Kim Jong-un’s visit to Seoul.
According to a Liberty Korea Post correspondent in Pyongyang, NK had provisionally planned on a November visit, and determined that Kim Jong-un’s security was the most important priority item for the visit. In order to solve the security problem, a substantial contingent of advance team headed by an officer from the Elite Guard Command came to Seoul in secret with the cooperation of the South Korean authorities.
The advance team is known to have analyzed the public sentiment and trends in Seoul, and collected the data concerning Kim Jong-un’s anticipated travel route and materials associated with Kim’s security.
As the result, the Elite Guard Command has determined that significant security risks existed throughout parts of Seoul. They also determined that South Korea’s security system was untrustworthy. Accordingly, they determined that, in the event Kim’s Seoul visit comes to pass, North Korea must take the lead in the security matters. Further, they decided that troops from NK Elite Guard Command must be placed in Seoul’s key points prior to Kim’s arrival.
This news put the members of the NK defector community on edge, including former members of NK Special Forces. They are very concerned that “If a great number of the Elite Guard Command troops enter Seoul, anything could happen. In all practicality, they’d be occupying Seoul.” The defectors are also concerned about the movements by pro-Kim groups such as the so-called “Baikdu Praising Committee,” which has held a support rally for Kim Jong-un’s visit on the steps of the Sejong Culture Center in GwangHwaMoon.
In the meantime, South Korea’s president Moon Jae-in has held a press conference in the presidential airplane on his way to New Zealand following the G20 gathering in Argentina, on December 2. During the press conference, Moon has said, “I believe that all the people of South Korea will welcome Chairman Kim with open arms. Should the citizens experience some inconvenience like a traffic jam for security reasons, they should understand it a little.”
