Half-brother of North Korean leader talks with CIA |

Seoul – Kim Jong-nam, a half-brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, who was killed in Malaysia in 2017, was an informant who collaborated with the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA).

The North Korean leader's half-brother met with CIA agents several times, the Wall Street Journal reported on Tuesday.

Kim Jong Nam, a former heir to power in North Korea, died of exposure to banned VX while waiting for him at Kuala Lumpur airport.

A source told The Wall Street Journal that there was a "link" between Kim Jong-nam and the CIA, but the newspaper pointed out that many details of its links with the CIA are unclear.

Kim Jong-nam traveled to Malaysia in February 2017 to meet the person he is talking to at the CIA, but that may not have been the only purpose of the visit, the source said.

Kim Jong-nam died after being attacked at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport on February 13, 2017 in an apparently Cold War-era assassination that shocked the world.

The two women, one Vietnamese and the other Indonesian, were arrested and charged with murder, insisting they were deceived by North Korean agents to carry out the operation, believing they had been involved in a reality TV joke.

The Malaysian prosecution later dropped the charges against them and the Indonesian was released in March while Vietnamese was released in May.

Kim Jong-nam seems to have become an unwanted person for the North Korean regime after being deported from Japan in 2001 when he tried to enter it using a fake passport to visit Disneyland.
