Report: Iran's parliament speaker to visit North Korea

Iran's Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani will visit North Korea on Sunday on a three-day trip, Iran's parliament news service said.

From Pyongyang, Larijani will travel to China, the news service said.

The trips are intended to "further promote parliamentary cooperation and relations," according to Hossein Sheikholeslam, the international affairs advisor to Larijani.

"He will also discuss the latest developments in the region with Chinese and DPRK officials," Sheikholeslam told the news agency.

    It is worth reading up on Larijani a bit. He is an absolute freak. Or in other words, he will get along well with Kim Jong-Il and his family.

    Hey even the bad guys need to have friends. This trip is just about as newsworthy as it would be for CNN to report on Boehner going to the UK for a weekend.
