Please join the National Committee on North Korea and the East-West Center in Washington for a North Korea in the World webinar on North Korea-Syria relations, featuring Dr. Samuel Ramani.
This webinar will discuss Pyongyang’s relationship with Damascus in the context of its broader
involvement in the Middle East, from the 1967 and 1973 wars with Israel to Pyongyang’s contemporary support for the Assad regime during the Syrian Civil War. It will look at how Pyongyang’s relationship with Damascus fits into the broader context of North Korea’s engagement with the Middle East, and examine the continuing value the relationship has for both countries.
This North Korea in the World webinar is the fourth in a series examining North Korea’s historical and contemporary relations with countries in the Global South. The North Korea in the World project is a joint initiative of the National Committee on North Korea and the East-West Center in Washington; the NorthKoreaInTheWorld.org website collects and curates information and data on North Korea’s external economic and diplomatic relations.
This seminar will be on-the-record and recorded on both Zoom and YouTube.
