"We will examine the impact our sanctions are having, as well as our efforts to empower the North Korean people with the truth about Kim Jong-un's brutal human rights abuses".

It was not immediately known exactly when Kim visited the factory.

Mr Kim Han Sol, who grew up in Macau under Chinese protection as his father was in exile from North Korea, was last seen in March in a video posted on the website of humanitarian group Cheollima Civil Defence.

While we're used to seeing the hermit kingdom's supreme leader cheerily visiting bomb makers and giggling on the sidelines of ballistic missile tests, he eschewed those macho environments to enjoy the pastel colours and soft lighting of the Pyongyang Cosmetics Factory.

Kim toured the Pyongyang Cosmetics Factory with other senior officials, according to a report published by KCNA, the state news agency. In that regard, Kim has flouted tradition by appearing publicly with Ri.

"It has come to have the dream of the women who want to be more lovely be realized".

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un was also quoted in a separate article calling for faster scientific developments.




"North Korea has accelerated the threat that it poses to its neighbours and the world through its illegal and unnecessary missile and nuclear weapons programs", Mr Mattis said on Saturday.

The South Korean government believes the assassination of Mr Kim Jong Nam was ordered by Mr Kim Jong Un to get rid of a potential rival.

Kim said North Korea launched its first pilot communications satellite, Kwangmyongsong-1, in August 1998.

The news comes as Donald Trump prepares for his first visit to the region, with the US President set to arrive in Tokyo on Sunday for a three-day trip before he continues on to South Korea, the Philippines, China and Vietnam.

The promotion was an indication that she had replaced Kim's aunt, Kim Kyong Hee, who had been a key decision-maker when former leader Kim Jong Il was alive.

She is considered one of the most influential woman in North Korea, only second to Ri, according to Bloomberg.

Knowledge of the Kim family has often been a mystery to the outside world, with very little information escaping the rogue state.
