Syrian President Bashar al-Assad will visit Kim Jong Un in North Korea’s capital, the regime’s state media announced Sunday, in what would 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, Fox News reports.
“The world welcomes the remarkable events in the Korean peninsula brought about recently by the outstanding political caliber and wise leadership of HE Kim Jong Un. I am going to visit the DPRK and meet HE Kim Jong Un, North Korea will achieve the final victory and realize the reunification of Korea without fail. Syrian government fully suppors all policies and measures of the DPRK leadership.” Assad (the acronym “HE” for “His Excellency.”)
Ties between North Korea and Syria have remained friendly for decades, with Assad’s father Hafez meeting the founder of the North Korean regime, Kim Il Sung, in the 1970s.
North Korea has been selling military grade weapons for years, as well as providing Syria with advanced Scud missiles and the technology to produce them.
“The Syrian government and people are reliably defending the independence and security of the country, resolutely smashing the acts of aggression of all the hostile forces and meeting their challenges under your correct leadership.” ~ Kim Jong Un
All of this of course is happening before President Trump meets with the North Korean dictator. the long history between Syria and North Korea and the fact that North Korea has been providing Syria with Chemical weapons, should put the White House and Pentagon on alert to re-think the meeting. These are simply two nations that the United States will never be able to trust yet alone broker “peace” with.
