S Korean ex-first lady ends DPRK visit

Lee Hee-ho, widow of late South Korean President Kim Dae-jung, left Pyongyang on Saturday after a four-day visit to the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea.

She arrived at the Gimpo International Airport of Seoul at noon after departure.

During her stay, the 93-year-old ex-first lady visited a children’s hospital, a maternity home and an orphanage in Pyongyang.

According to local media citing the Kim Dae-jung Peace Center, which organized Lee’s trip, the ex-first lady hasn’t met Kim Jong Un during her stay.

The trip was Lee’s third to the DPRK. She last visited Pyongyang in December 2011 to attend the funeral of late top DPRK leader Kim Jong Il, father of current leader Kim Jong Un.
