Syrian President Bashar al-Assad 'to visit North Korea', North's state news agency says



Syrian President Bashar al-Assad plans to make a state visit to North Korea, the North's state news agency says.

 
It would be the first time North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has hosted a head of state since assuming power in 2011.


He has undertaken a flurry of diplomatic activity recently, meeting China's president in May, and is expected to attend a summit with Donald Trump this month.


Syria, an ally of the North, has made no comment on the reported plan.


The two countries have been accused of co-operating on chemical weapons. But both nations deny the accusations.
