Kim Jong-un makes rare appearance with wife at makeup factory

North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un took his stylish wife and powerful sister to a make-up plant for a "field guidance trip" amid the country's nuclear standoff with the US. During his visit, Kim called for production of "cosmetics of good quality with world competitive power", according to the Korea Herald.

"This hearing will be an opportunity to learn how best to apply maximum diplomatic and financial pressure on the Kim regime", Royce said. Known to be handling the party's propaganda operations, Yo-Jong has been seen accompanying Kim closely and in a casual manner - rare among the country's top officials - at high- profile public events.

Recent United Nations (UN) sanctions following North Korea's provocative acts have placed additional economic pressure on Pyongyang, but that hasn't stopped Kim's regime from promising to sending more satellites, including a stationary one, into space.

As the rotund ruler giggled as he was shown around, standing behind him was his dutiful wife Ri Sol-ju.

The KCNA report noted that Kim told factory workers they were helping to realise "the dream of the women who want to be more beautiful".

Ri has been largely absent in the public eye in 2017 after allegedly having the despot's third child in February.
