N. Korea, Iran reaffirm enmity toward US

SEOUL -- North Korea's ceremonial head of state has vowed to strengthen ties with Iran and reaffirmed a shared hostility toward the United States during a meeting with Iran's leader, state media said Sunday.

Kim Young Nam, attending a summit of the Non-Aligned Movement in Tehran, met with Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Saturday to clarify Pyongyang's "firm stand" to boost ties with Iran, the North's KCNA said.

Kim stressed the need for more bilateral exchanges among high-level delegations as well as to boost economic and diplomatic ties during the talks that took place under "friendly atmosphere," it added.

The Iranian authorities said boosting bilateral relations would be beneficial to both nations, praising the North's "steadfast anti-imperialist, anti-U.S. stand," KCNA said.

"At the talks both sides exchanged views on ... strengthening cooperation on the joint anti-imperialist, anti-U.S. front and in the nonaligned movement," it said.

During Kim's latest trip to Iran, the two countries also signed an agreement to cooperate on science, technology and education, KCNA said.
