North Korea's dinky despot Kim Jong Un bought on his excessive horse Wednesday to wander up the sacred Mount Paektu - stirring up hypothesis that he would be preparing for a first-rate announcement. The images released by the state media show a bespectacled Kim wearing a long, light-brown coat and riding t through snowy fields and woods on Mt Paektu, the spiritual homeland of the Kim dynasty, along with his younger sister and other aides. The government-controlled agency KCNA has also published eight photographs and an article with the caption "Dear Leader Kim Jong-un Climbed the Mountain".

North Korea claims Kim Jong Il, the current leader's late father, was born there.

"His march on horseback in Mt Paektu is a great event of weighty importance in the history of the Korean revolution", KCNA said.

Kim also said "the pain the USA -led anti-(North Korea) hostile forces inflicted upon the Korean people ... turned into their anger", according to KCNA.

Experts pointed out that his three previous solo visits to the famed mountain, located at the area bordering China in the northeast of the country, preceded important decisions, reported Efe news.

Kim previously visited Mount Paektu before executing his powerful uncle in 2013 and entering into diplomacy with South Korea and the USA in 2018. The trip that Kim undertook in February 2013 ended three years of mourning following the death of Kim Yong-il, the former ruler and Kim's father.

During the visit, Kim criticized the United States sanctions imposed on his country at a time when talks between Pyongyang and Washington on nuclear disarmament have already come to a standstill. "No matter what persistent efforts the enemy make, we can live well with our own efforts and pave the avenue to development and prosperity in our own way". Near the mountain, Kim reportedly vowed to overcome US -led sanctions that he said had both pained and infuriated his people.

North Korea has in the meantime considered the talks to have been stalled and said that in principle it had no plans to meet again in the Swedish capital in the coming days as proposed by the US.
