N. Korean: Syria Deserves the 'Occupied Golan'

The Chairman of the Supreme People's Council of North Korea, Choi Tan Bok, met the Syrian prime minister Muhammad al-Utri Sunday in Damascus.

Choi reportedly said that his country will stand by Syria as it faces challenges, and supports its "legitimate efforts to return the occupied Golan Heights to Syrian hands."

This is the second top-level meeting between the countries since the Israeli attack on a target in northeastern Syria in September.
