Kim Jong-un

Kim Jong-un is the Supreme Leader of the Republic of North Korea. North Korea is one of the most secretive states in the world, and has been since WW2. There is a lot of speculation about the ways in which Kim Jong-un runs North Korea, but no-one seems to know for sure. In 2018, Kim Jong-un met with Donald Trump, in the first ever meeting between the US and North Korea, to discuss the North Korean nuclear program. We don’t know much about Kim Jong-un personally, except that he likes basketball. He also has a pretty hipster haircut.

Kim Jong-un is 5 foot 5 inches (1.65 m) tall.

Scaled height comparison illustrations of Benjamin Netanyahu in relation to other political figures

Benjamin Netanyahu is the current Prime Minister of Israel.

He joined the Likud party in 1988, later becoming their leader, and went on to win the Israeli National Election in 2009.

He is the longest serving Israeli Prime Minister in history, having now been in power for 21 years.

Benjamin Netanyahu has a height of 5’11” (1.80 m).
