Kim Jong-un praises cosmetics factory staff for making North Korea’s women ‘more beautiful’ – Telegraph.co.uk

North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un took a break from warmongering and firing ballistic missiles at the weekend to inspect a cosmetics factory in the country’s capital, Pyongyang.

State newswire KCNA reported that his wife, Ri Sol-ju, made a rare public appearance to join him, releasing undated photos of her gazing over his shoulder as he picks up cosmetic products and talks excitedly about make-up, displaying his trademark maniacal laugh.

The supreme leader’s sister, Kim Yo-jong, also listened intently in the background as he reportedly urged the cosmetics industry to become “world competitive” and praised the factory for helping North Korean women to “be more beautiful.”  

The variety of cosmetics gave him great joy, reported KCNA, adding his comments that “not only the pattern of their vessels but packing boxes are very nice.”
