SEOUL (Reuters) - Perhaps none of the communist legacies shared by Vietnam and North Korea highlighted during Kim Jong Un’s “goodwill visit” to Hanoi is stranger than the embalmed leaders on display in their capital cities, and the secretive team of Russian technicians that keeps the aging bodies looking ageless.

In North Korea, the regulatory body is the Language Institute of the Academy of Social Sciences (사회과학원 어학연구소; 社會科學院語學研究所, Sahoe Gwahagweon Eohag Yeonguso). “Trump wants the rapport. Visitors to Pyongyang’s Kumsusan Palace pass displays that include Kim Jong Il’s personal yacht and an Apple computer the dictator had once owned, before being required to bow three times to the bodies. A source with committee, however confirmed the monument is closed every year for two months and that Russian technicians help with annual maintenance of the body. Kim looked far more confident compared to their Singapore meeting, while Trump welcomed Kim with his palm facing up - a sign, said body language expert Karen Leong, of a more open, conciliatory approach from the brash businessman. The original embalming takes several months, and the bodies need regular upkeep. The North Korean delegation at the United Nations did not respond to a request for comment. "While it is obvious the methodology was derived from Russia, it will be a closely kept secret," he said.

There were signs of tension, however, when the two men sat down.

“Every one-and-a-half to two-years, these bodies are re-embalmed by the Moscow scientists,” Yurchak said, citing interviews he conducted with lab scientists and his own field research. Kim’s fingers were clenched in his lap, a position that shows frustration and self-control. By Josh Smith, Reuters • March 5, 2019.

Trump, 72, is more than twice the age of Kim, 35. The two leaders will hold a series of meetings on Thursday and try to make progress on a vague deal struck in Singapore to work towards the complete denuclearization of the Korean peninsula that has produced few concrete results.

When contacted by Reuters, the mausoleum lab in Moscow, which since 1992 has been known as the Center for Scientific Research and Teaching Methods in Biochemical Technologies, declined to comment on any aspect of its work. When the Soviet Union collapsed in the 1990s, the government lab faced a funding crisis, leading it to rely more heavily on offering services to foreign clients, Yurchak said. Unlike earlier preservation processes such as mummification, the permanent embalming pioneered by Soviet scientists kept the bodies flexible, with unblemished skin and a lifelike, if rather waxy, pallor. With North Vietnam under regular attack by American warplanes at the time of Ho’s death in 1969, the Soviet Union airlifted chemicals and equipment to a cave outside Hanoi, which the Soviet experts turned into a sterile lab, Yurchak said. “Today this original meaning of these bodies has changed – in Vietnam the body of Ho today stands for anti-colonial struggles for independence and even for new nationalism, much more than for communism,” Yurchak said.

Although you may see Russian women kissing each others’ cheeks and Russian men embracing each other, and a combination of both, with people you don’t know, it’s always best and most appropriate to stick with a handshake. Among those customers was North Korea, where Russian specialists embalmed both Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il at a laboratory built into the mausoleum in Pyongyang.

Since Singapore, Trump has declared he and Kim “fell in love” after exchanging letters, a far cry from when Trump in late 2017 called Kim “Little Rocket Man” and a “sick puppy” and Kim said Trump was a “dotard” - meaning a senile old person. Researcher Tom Fowdy, who founded a group promoting tourism and cultural engagements in North Korea, said he has seen the Kumsusan Palace closed for unexplained "renovations", but maintenance of the bodies is a mystery. Kim Hyung-hee, director of the Korea Body Language Lab, said Trump seemed “to be taking a bit of extra care” in shaking Kim’s hand compared to other leaders. ; Editing by Lincoln Feast), FILE PHOTO - The body of North Korean leader Kim Jong-il lies in state at the Kumsusan Memorial Palace in Pyongyang in this picture released by the North's official KCNA news agency early December 21, 2011.
