  • Syrian President to meet Kim Jong Un in North Korea, report says

    : *Syrian President to meet Kim Jong Un in North Korea, report says*

    Days before Kim Jong Un is set to meet US President Donald Trump in Singapore, the North Korean leader is revealing plans to meet yet another leader -- Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. Assad will visit Kim in North Korea, the latter country's state news agency said Sunday. The report did not specify a date for the meeting, and Syrian state media has so far not reported on the planned visit. It would be the first time a world leader has visited Kim in the capital.

    The announcement comes at a time of increased international diplomacy for Kim, who in recent months has met with South Korean President Moon Jae-in in the demilitarized zone that divides the two countries, caught an eye-catching train to China for a meeting with President Xi Jinping, and last week met with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov in Pyongyang.

    Trump has said he will meet with Kim on June 12 , and on Friday with a former North Korean spy chief -- the highest-level North Korean official to visit the US in 18 years. In anticipation of the meeting with the North Korean leader, Assad received his credentials from the nation's ambassador Wednesday.
