U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says that shots fired by North Korea across its border with South Korea on Saturday (May 2) were likely "accidental".

North and South Korea exchanged gunfire around a rural guard post, raising tensions on the peninsula just a day after North Korean state media showed Kim visiting a factory, the first report of him making a public appearance since mid-April.

South Korea responded to shots fired from across the DMZ but no casualties were reported.

Speaking on ABC This Week, Pompeo declined to comment on Kim's health, following rumors that he was gravely ill.

A South Korean government official also said on Sunday (May 3) that Kim did not undergo surgery in his three week absence.

There had been reports that the North Korean leader had undergone serious cardiovascular surgery.

Indians have done their best to respond to China's aggressive actions: Mike Pompeo

Speaking on India-China border tensions, US Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo said, "I have spoken with Foreign Minister S Jaishankar a number of times about this. Chinese took incredibly aggressive actions and Indians have done their best to respond to that. There aren't many neighbours that can satisfactorily say that they know where their sovereignty ends and the Chinese Communist Party will respect that. That is certainly true now for people of Bhutan. The world must come together to respond to this. This increasing revisionist effort that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is engaged in is something that President Trump has taken incredibly seriously." He further said, "World has seen true colours of Chinese Communist Party and I am convinced more than ever that free people of the world will come to understand the threat. The impact General Secy Xi Jinping has on the world is not good for free and democracy loving people."
