North Korea's state-run news agency reported Sunday that Syria's President Bashar Assad is interested in visiting North Korea and meeting leader Kim Jong Un.

The KCNA report said Assad made the comments May 30 while receiving the credentials for the North Korean ambassador.

"I am going to visit the DPRK and meet HE Kim Jong Un," Assad was quoted saying, using the acronym for the North's official name.

There was no indication that such a trip had been planned.
