The minister of defense for South Korea also reportedly noted that Kim's sister now apparently plays a prominent role in “shaping” her country's policy towards South Korea and the United States.

South Korean officials now believe that Kim Yo-jong, sister of the North Korean head of state Kim Jong-un, is now "effectively running" one of DPRK's "most important" political bodies, as CNN puts it.

According to the media outlet, South Korea's Defense Minister Jeong Kyeong-doo told the country's National Assembly lawmakers on Tuesday that Kim's sister is "likely" in charge of the Organization and Guidance Department of North Korea's ruling Workers' Party, which "deals with ideological indoctrination, party organization and political appointments".

Jeong also reportedly noted that Kim Yo-jong now apparently plays a prominent role in "shaping" her country's policy towards South Korea and the United States.
