North Korea’s state media reported the pair have been exchanging correspondence – a development sure to set alarm bells ringing from Washington to Seoul.
A news article in a recent Pyongyang-based newspaper claimed Assad, who is believed to have orchestrated chemical attacks against children during Syria’s civil war, “highly appreciated” Kim Jong-un.
And another article said Kim had been given “a gift” from a visiting Syrian dignitary.
The relationship appears to have blossomed in recent days due to a congratulatory message sent from Kim to Assad.
