This is the astonishing moment Kim Jong-un was caught on camera pushing a photographer out of his wife’s way during last week’s historic Korean summit.
The dictator shoved the cameraman in the back to move him out of the path of wife Ri Sol Ju as she approached to meet South Korean President Moon Jae-In in the truce village of Panmunjom.
Footage shows Kim, who was standing next to his Seoul counterpart, using the back of his hand to push the photographer who quickly moves to one side.

Ri Sol-ju, the 28-year-old tyrant’s wife, crossed the border in the Demilitarized Zone into South Korean territory on Friday to attend a summit dinner hosted by President Moon and his wife Kim Jung-sook.
Before sitting at the dinner table, she spoke briefly with South Korean first lady Kim Jung-sook, marking the first-ever meeting between the first ladies of the two Koreas.
Upon her arrival at the truce village of Panmunjom at 6:15 pm, she headed directly for the Peace House building on the southern side of the village, where the welcome dinner is set to take place.
Moon and Kim had a historic summit on the second floor of the building earlier in the day, following which they announced that the Koreas will push for three-way talks including Washington or four-way talks that also include Beijing on converting the armistice into a peace treaty and establishing permanent peace on the Korean peninsula.
They agreed to open a permanent communication office in the North Korean town of Kaesong, resume temporary reunions between relatives separated by the Korean War and will seek to expand civilian exchanges and pursue joint sports and cultural events.

‘I’m happy to hear from my husband that the summit was a success. I hope things between the two leaders do go well,’ South Korea TV quoted Ri as saying during the meeting.
The two ladies seemed to hit it off, with Kim Jung-sook seen laughing happily after greeting her North Korean counterpart.
Meanwhile President Moon has asked the United Nations to verify the planned closure of North Korea’s nuclear test site, a UN spokesman said today.
Moon made the request in a phone call to UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres on Monday, a few days after North Korean leader Kim Jong Un told the South Korean leader he planned to shut down the test site in May.

‘The president sought the support of the United Nations to verify the imminent closure of the DPRK’s nuclear test site, as announced by the DPRK Chairman Kim Jong Un,’ said UN spokesman Stephane Dujarric. The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) is North Korea’s official name.
Moon also asked for UN support to ‘transform the demilitarized zone into a peace zone’ between the two Koreas, he added.
Guterres said the United Nations was ready to discuss possible forms of support, but no details were provided.
Kim Jong-un’s wife had a low profile before the summit and it appeared as if the leading ladies had hit it off as they held hands before the farewell ceremony

The Vienna-based International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), the UN’s global nuclear watchdog, has the expertise to carry out verification missions.
Kim told Moon during the summit on Friday that he planned to dismantle the Punggye-ri nuclear test site as the leaders pledged to pursue a permanent peace treaty and denuclearize the Korean peninsula.
The Security Council has imposed tough economic sanctions on North Korea after Pyongyang last year carried out a sixth nuclear test and a series of advanced missile launches.
Guterres on Friday applauded the ‘truly historic summit’ between the Korean leaders and urged them to quickly turn their commitments into action.
