N. Korea Leader Plans First Trip Abroad

The North Korean leader Kim Jong Un may be attending the April Asian-African conference in Indonesia, marking his first international official visit, Yonhap News Agency reported Sunday.
“For Kim Jong-un, the Bandung [Indonesian city] meeting will be a noteworthy diplomatic schedule,” an unnamed South Korean government source was quoted as saying by the news agency, Sputnik reported.
Kim has not been reported to make any international trips since he became the leader of North Korea in December 2011. According to South Korean officials, Kim is expected to begin his international visits with the Asian-African Conference in Bandung.
Kim Jong Un, who is said to model himself after Kim Il Sung, the late founder of the North Korean regime, is expected to follow the legacy of his predecessor, who joined the Bandung conference during its 10th anniversary in 1965.
Following this initial trip, Kim is expected to visit Moscow to attend the 70th anniversary of the Soviet Union’s victory in World War II, in May. Moscow has invited many world leaders — including Kim and the presidents of China and South Korea — to celebrations marking the Soviet Union’s victory over Nazi Germany, which will include a massive parade on Red Square.
