Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un plan to meet in North Korea for a summit, according to the North's state-run news agency.
Kim has frequently praised and supported Assad. The meeting, if it happens, will be the first time Kim has hosted a world leader since coming to power in 2011.
Each opened embassies in the other country back in the 1960s. Multiple reports say that since then, the North has had a small military presence in Syria and that the two countries have shared military resources.
The North's Korean Central News Agency didn't announce a date for the Assad-Kim summit, and CNN reports Syrian state media has not commented on the visit yet.
