N Korean Leader Seen With Two Women at Cosmetics Factory Amid Sanctions

North Korean ruler Kim Jong-un and his wife Ri Sol-ju stepped out in public to visit the Pyongyang Cosmetic Factory to encourage women to be "more handsome", according to pictures released over the weekend.

Ms Kim meanwhile can not be identified in the photographs, but the report by state news agency KCNA mentioned she was present along with other top officials.

A smiling Kim was captured inspecting a range of cosmetic products including soap and women's perfume alongside Ri, in her second public appearance this month.

Kim's wife, who is shown in the photos, remains largely mysterious to much of the public.

Lady Ri Sol-ju accompanied her husband and other senior North Korean officials on a tour of the recently revamped Pyongyang Cosmetics Factory on Sunday, according to Korean Central News Agency (KCNA).

The day before the cosmetics factory visit, US Defence Secretary Jim Mattis, said America would "never accept" a nuclear-armed North Korea during his visit to Seoul. Her exact age is unknown and she rarely makes public appearances.

"North Korea has accelerated the threat that it poses to its neighbors and the world through its illegal and unnecessary missile and nuclear weapons programs", he said.

Mainstream daily JoongAng Ilbo reported yesterday that the police have arrested two North Korean agents allegedly tasked with tracking down Mr Kim Han Sol, 22, who has been in hiding since his father, Mr Kim Jong Nam, was murdered in Malaysia in February.
