More and more in the past six years In the major diplomatic activities of the DPRK A precedent for the first ladys first lady diplomacy In April 14, 2018, the Pyongyang Wanshou Taiwan Art Theatre, Kim Jeong-eun, chairman of the Korean labor party and chairman of the State Council, stepped into the audience in a warm applause. The Chinese Ballet of the thirty-first April spring friendship Festival is on the stage to perform the dance drama Giselle. Before the start of the performance, after Li Xue was seated, she sat on her sides, Song Tao, Minister of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China, vice minister Li Qun of the Chinese Ministry of culture and tourism, Li Jinjun of the Chinese ambassador to Korea, the head of the Central Ballet, Feng Ying, and the leaders of the Korean labor party, Cui Long, Li Zhuyong, Jin Yingzhe, Jin and Zheng. Pu Chunnan and so on. The second days of the second days, the DPRK and the Labor News published a draft of Ms. Li Xuezhu, the leading comrades of the party and the government, watching the performance of the Chinese Art Troupe together, and called the respected lady Li Xuezhu and the leading comrades of Cui Longhai, Li Zhuyong, Jin Ying Zhe, Jin and Pu Chunnan, and Pu Chunnan and other party and government. Ms. Li Xuezhu, together with the leading comrades of the party and government, warmly congratulated the successful performance and waved to the performers. This is the first time the DPRK and the Labor News address Li Xue as the respectable lady Li Xuezhu, and the first time the official Korean media reported Li Xuezhu to take part in foreign affairs in the absence of Kim Jeong-eun. The North Korean first lady, who has no party and government functions, has been increasingly appearing in North Koreas major diplomatic activities in the past six years. Seven years ago, seven years ago, in the Korean Lunar New Year Concert in 2011, she was in red dress as a member of the performers to the stage of the marigold Art Theater, accompanied by the young Sax, singing the Korean love song elegant gentleman, with the same applause. Lady Li Xuezhu, In the reports of CAS, Li Xue was the first to attend a foreign event with Mrs. Kim Jeong-eun in October 15, 2013, when she accompanied Kim Jeong-eun to watch Russias twenty-first Century orchestra performance at the Dongping loo theatre. For Li Xue, this is probably an old friends reunion. The Russian twenty-first Century Orchestra head of the orchestra, ORF, had been invited to guide the Galactic Orchestra in the North Korea, while Li Xue was performed in the galaxy orchestra from 2010 to 2011. In Coles view, it originated from Li Xues genius. She did not sing difficult songs, but she performed very well for the songs she sang. She has a strong stage charm. She is not afraid of stage fright. She always performs very happily, moving on stage and grabs the audiences heart. According to Yonhap, officials of the South Korean National Intelligence Institute confirmed that Li Xue took part in the Inchon Asian Track and Field Championships in 2005 as a member of the Korean cheerleading team and held a friendship with the Korean youth. At that time, Li Xuezhu was also a student of a music school in Pyongyang. In February 17, 2011, at the Lantern Festival Party of the galaxy Orchestra, Li Xue was singing the Chinese song the night of the military harbor, the audience in the audience, sitting on Kim Jong-il and Kim Jeong-euns father and son. After a long time, Li Xue disappeared in the public eye. In July 24, 2012, on the banks of the Datong River in Pyongyang, the newly completed amusement park of the people of Damo, Li Xue, wearing a green coat and a black skirt, took Kim Jeong-euns arm and walked side by side in the front of the crowd. At this point, the Labour Partys senior leaders are already accustomed to this scene. Beginning with the premiere of the peony peak Orchestra in July 6th of that year, Li Xue has accompanied Kim Jeong-eun for many times. But it was not until July 25th that DPRK CCTV, for the first time in the eight p. m. news program, announced to the world that Kim Jeong-euns wife Li Xue owner took part in the opening ceremony of the playground. Since then, Li Xuezhu accompanied Kim Jeong-eun to attend major events as a new normal for Korean politics. In 2017 alone, Li Xuezhu accompanied Kim Jeong-eun to visit the Jinxiu Mountain Sun Palace, to plant trees in the Wanshou revolutionary Institute, to try to take Pyongyang tramcars, and to inspect the Pyongyang pharmaceutical factory, the Pyongyang cosmetic factory, the Liuyuan shoe factory and so on. However, she was most often accompanied by Kim Jeong-euns entertainment and sporting events. In the evening of January 8, 2014, Li Xuezhu accompanied Kim Jeong-eun to the DPRKs basketball match in the Pyongyang gymnasium, which ended with the Korean teams 47:39 victory by Kim Jeong-euns favorite American basketball star, Rodman (DennisRodman). I am not a diplomat, not a diplomat. Before starting, Rodman said to the media. According to cna, the audience was also different from the attendees of serious activities, including Pyongyang sports fans and the Madame Pu Fengzhu, Cui Longhai and Jiang Xizhu of the Korean leaders. After the game, Kim Jeong-eun didnt make a political speech, but said he watched a wonderful game, hoping American basketball players had a good time during their stay. I had a leisure time with Kim Jeong-eun and his family at the seaside. We shared a lot of food and drinks, and discussed how to develop their basketball team, Rodman said in an interview with the guardian. I held their daughter and talked with Mrs. Li Xuezhu. Kim Jeong-eun is a good father. He has a good family. In addition to attending foreign and sports events and sports events with the nature of public diplomacy, Kim Jeong-eun often watched the Korean performances with visiting foreign leaders, and Li Xue owners would also accompany them. In September 7, 2015, the peony peak Orchestra and the meritorious national Choir welcomed the visit of the Republic of Cuba National Delegation. Dias, the first vice chairman of the Cuban State Council and the first vice chairman of the Ministerial Conference, was attended by Dias kinner and his wife. Mr. and Mrs. Caner sat on Kim Jeong-euns left hand side, while Li Xue owner was accompanied on the right side. . Entering the 2018, Li Xue Lord attended public diplomacy more and more frequently. From April 1st to April 16th, Li Xuezhu attended three foreign affairs performances. And every time she plays the role, there are new changes. In April 1st, Li Xuezhu accompanied Kim Jeong-eun to watch the spring coming performance of the visiting Korean art troupe. At the end of the campaign for the forthcoming meeting of Kim Jeong-eun and the president of the South Korean President, Kim Jeong-eun and Li Xue waved to the performers to congratulate them on the success of the performance. But then the central news agency only reported Kim Jeong-eun walking down the stand and shaking hands with the actors. In April 14th, a similar scene was staged at the wanshoutai Art Theater, but this time the Chinese actor waved to Li Xue. Li Xuezhus seat in the grandstand is independent and has a great distance from the audience in the same row. This is a common arrangement before Kim Jeong-eun attended the event. The live photos published in Labor News also showed that Li Xuezhu still shook hands with the Chinese Art Troupe leaders and actors after the end of the performance and held talks. The most interesting concern is that the official Korean media gave Li Xue the title of respected lady Li Xuezhu. The news weekly quoted a North Korean news writer as saying that honorific words such as respect are generally reserved for North Korean leaders. Prior to this, Kim Il-Sungs wife Jin Zhengshu and Kim Jong-ils wife Gao Yingji received honorific titles after their death. The first press release, which was the first to address Li Xuezhu, was published in the second half of the second page of the April 15th issue of Labor News, followed by the first pages and the half edition of the second page of Kim Jeong-euns foreign affairs. In April 16th, Li Xuezhu accompanied Kim Jeong-eun again to watch the ballet, the Red Detachment of women, presented by the Chinese Art Troupe. According to the CNA, it was different from the arrangement after the April 1st performance. This time, Li Xue owner joined Kim Jeong-eun on the stage and shook hands with the main actors of the Chinese art troupe to congratulate the performance. The picture shows that Li Xuezhu, dressed in a black coat, and Song Tao, the Minister of the Central Committee, stand on both sides of Kim Jeong-eun, with a symbolic smile on her face. According to cna, from April 14th to April 17th, Kim Jeong-eun attended two banquets for the Chinese Art Troupe and the two meeting with the Minister of the Foreign Liaison Department of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China. Li Xue also took part in the two dinner, and finally, together with Kim Jeong-eun, warmly welcome farewell to Comrade Song Tao and other Chinese comrades. DPRK first lady Never participated in the meeting between the Korean and Korean leaders Li Xue is playing the role of her identity, which will help her play the role of first lady in the next Korean and Korean head of state meeting. After the Korean official gave Li Xue the title of respected lady Li Xuezhu, an anonymous Korean official think tank expert said in an interview with the media. If Li Xuezhu appeared on the scene of the third summit meeting between the DPRK and the ROK in April 27th, the DPRK would get a new breakthrough in first lady diplomacy. During the Kim Jong-il administration, the first lady of North Korea never participated in the meeting between the leaders of the two countries. Li Jihao, the wife of former South Korean President Kim Dae-jung, recalls in his autobiography that when the north and South leaders met in June 13, 2000, because the DPRK could not arrange for the reception, she faced embarrassment many times in Pyongyang. Before the June 14, 2000 Thanksgiving dinner party began, Li Jihao was told that the DPRK did not correspond with me according to our foreign etiquette, so it could only be sitting at table 1 rather than at the summit table. Before the banquet began, Lin Dongyuan, the then Korean leader of the Republic of Korea, commented on the issue as wise and intelligent by the North Korean leader Kim Jong-il. He said to Li Jihao jokingly, come here, Mrs. Lee, and dont become a separated family member. (Kim Dae-jung) so the president advocated the separation of family members. How can we make you a separated family in Pyongyang? In May 10, 2014, Kim Jeong-eun went to the Western Theater combat airport to review the PLAs combat flying technology competition. The competition was held by Kim Jeong-eun personally. It was the first major training competition held in the history of the Korean Air Force. Not only the elite pilots of the peoples army and air force were in succession, but also the senior general of the Korean peoples army and the senior generals of the air army, Wu Qintie and other senior generals. Li Xuezhu was standing next to Kim Jeong-eun in the photos released by the Korean Central News Agency. After that year, she accompanied Kim Jeong-eun to participate in the flying technology competition. Li Xue also accompanied Kim Jeong-eun two times in 2016 and 2017 to inspect the Korean peoples armys army, Navy, aviation and air defense, and the guard of honor of the workers and Peasants Red Guards. In February 8, 2018, Li Xuezhu accompanied Kim Jeong-eun on the Kim Il-Sung square viewing platform to review the 70th anniversary military parade of the peoples Liberation Army in advance. The Central News Agency reported that when Kim Jeong-eun and Li Xuezhu boarded the viewing platform, all the officers and soldiers read the slogan long live and swear to defend slogans. Since 2018, Li has repeatedly participated in the government diplomatic activities of the same nature as the DPRK and South Korea summit. In March 5, 2018, as a gift for Jin Yongnan, Kim and visiting the south, the special envoy of South Korea and the head of national security Zheng Yirong flew to Pyongyang. When they arrived in Pyongyang, the envoy confirmed that they would receive Kim Jeong-euns personal interview. Subsequently, Kim Jeong-eun and Li Xuezhu together to welcome the envoy in the hall outside the banquet hall. The video showed that Li Xue, who was dressed up and dressed up with a smile, joined Kim Jeong-eun with special envoy Zheng Yirong, the president of the National National Academy Xu Xun, the second officer of the unified ministry, Qian Haicheng, the head of the national condition hospital, Jin Xiangjun and the governor of Chong Wa Dae, Yin Jian. In March 25th, Li Xuezhu accompanied Kim Jeong-eun to a special train to Beijing for an informal visit to China. On the 26 day, in the Great Hall of the people, Chinese President Xi Jinping and his wife Peng Liyuan posed for a group photo with Kim Jeong-eun and Li Xuezhu. On the second day, President Xi Jinping and his wife Peng Liyuan held a luncheon for Kim Jeong-eun and Li Xue at Diaoyutai State Guest House. Since July 25, 2012, as the first lady of the DPRK formally appeared in the public view, Li Xuezhu has created a precedent for the first lady diplomacy of the DPRK.
