Syrian President Bashar al-Assad Plans to Meet Kim Jong Un in Pyongyang

Jun 04 , 2018

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad is planning to visit Kim Jong Un, North Korea’s state media reported Sunday, for what could be the North Korean leader’s first summit meeting with a foreign head of state in his capital, Pyongyang.

The report didn’t specify when a visit by Mr. Assad might take place, but quoted the Syrian president as saying: “I am going to visit the DPRK and meet HE Kim Jong Un,” using the acronym for the North’s formal name, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea. “HE” is short for “His Excellency.”
