A latest photo of North Korea leader Kim Jong-il apparent successor Kim Jong-un was released, according to a BBC news report today.

Rodong Sinmun, a state-controlled North Korean newspaper was said to have published the official photo on its front page, reports say.

This will be the first time that the world will have a glimpse of Kim Jong-un, who is being predicted to be his father’s successor.

The North Korea leader had been reportedly ill, who was said to have suffered from a stroke in 2008.

Kim Jong-un is Kim Jong-il‘s third son, and most likely to continue the Communist dynasty started by his grandfather, Kim Il-sung, in 1948.

Kim Jong-un, who looked about 27 years old, was named vice-chairman of the Central Military Commission of the Workers’ Party and was appointed to its central committee, BBC learned from North Korea media.

As shown in the photo obtained by Reuters, Kim Jong-un is sitting on the front row with some 200 senior North Korean leaders, where a rare meeting of the ruling Workers’ Party occurred.

Kim Jong-un was promoted to top political and military positions, and was also given the rank of a four-star general, reports say.
