The head of Syrian Bashar al-Assad will visit Kim Jong Un in North Korea’s capital, the regime’s state media announced Sunday
The meeting will be the first face-to-face meeting between the two leaders.
North Korea’s state-run Korean Central News Agency said Assad expressed willingness to visit Pyongyang to meet with Kim on May 30 while receiving the credentials for the North Korean ambassador.
"I am going to visit the DPRK and meet HE Kim Jong Un," Assad was quoted saying, using the acronym “HE” for “His Excellency.”
No other details, including when the possible summit may occur, was released.
