Assad Lauds Close Ties With North Korea

President Bashar Assad on Thursday said it was important to cement historical ties binding Syria and the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK), given both countries have undergone all forms of pressure and siege.


During a meeting with a Korean delegation headed by Minister of Foreign Trade Ri Ryong Nam, the president said both countries have been on the same foot, refusing to bow to pressure, rejecting subordination, sticking to sovereignty and independent decision-making and standing against imperialist plots targeting the interests and capabilities of the peoples in their regions.
