The highest peak on the Korean Peninsula is considered sacred by North Koreans, and Kim often visited the mountain before making major decisions such as his 2018 entrance into diplomacy with Seoul and Washington.

The Korean Central News Agency says Kim also visited nearby construction sites and complained about sanctions imposed on his country because of its nuclear weapons program.

He was quoted as saying “the pain the U.S.-led anti-(North Korea) hostile forces inflicted upon the Korean people … turned into their anger.”
