NK‘s No. 2 leader to visit Indonesia, Singapore
North Korea's ceremonial head of state Kim Yong-nam will visit Indonesia soon as part of a two-nation trip that will also take him to Singapore, Pyongyang's official news agency reported Sunday.
Kim will make the "official goodwill" trip to Indonesia at the invitation of President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, the Korean Central News Agency said in a brief dispatch.
Kim also plans to visit Singapore, KCNA said without providing further details.
Kim, president of the Presidium of the Supreme People's Assembly, the North's rubber-stamp parliament, is considered second in line to the North's new leader Kim Jong-un who took over the communist state after his father Kim Jong-il died of heart attack in December.
Though they share the same surname, Kim Yong-nam is unrelated to the leader's family. (Yonhap)
