Kim Jong-nam , the half-brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un who was killed off in Malaysia in 2017 , were being an informant for the CIA , the Wall Street Journal reported on Monday.

The newspaper cited an unnamed “person knowledgeable about the matter” for the statement , and stated many details of Kim Jong-nam’s relationship with the CIA remained unclear . It quoted the supply as saying “there was a nexus” between the CIA and Kim Jong-nam.

The former officials also stated Kim Jong-nam had almost certainly been in touch with the security services of other countries , particularly China’s , the journal said.

South Korean and US officials have stated North Korean authorities ordered the assassination of Kim Jong-nam , who had been critical of his family’s dynastic rule . Pyongyang has denied the debt.

US president Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un have met twice , in Hanoi in February and Singapore in June last year , seeming to build personal goodwill but failing to agree on a deal to lift US sanctions in exchange for North Korea abandoning its nuclear and missile plans.
