Iran’s spokesman for the Non-Aligned Movement Summit confirmed that Kim would attend a meeting of the 120-member Non-Aligned Movement scheduled for Aug. 26-31, according to Seoul-based Arirang.

Kim Jong-Un is making his first foreign visit to Iran. The purpose of the visit is the Non-Aligned Movement summit.

These are contentious times for the DPRK's new leader to be visiting Iran. NK has recently accelerated construction of nuclear facilities.

I'm not sure much will come of this but, thought I would share.

Well, Iranians were there to see their last atomic test so this isn't surprising. Shipping between the two is also apparently something that happens.

Then again...Iran isn't another planet. They do have commercial and all kinds of relations with nations from China to Japan to South Korea and until very recently, Europe. The fact Kim is going personally IS interesting..but also means there shouldn't be much happening war-wise. It wouldn't do to hit the wrong world leader..now would it? err..

If that is truely their banner then i call BS....and for baby hewy to be going in person is suspect as the N Korean leaders dont like to travel much outside their home bubble.

Think about this meetin as a farce, and the true meeting is what to do about the west. Think of the kind of mess that war on those fronts would make.......

Well doesn't this sound sketcky, NK are back into nuclear research and ICBM's..And they're planing to meet with Iran..it's probably going like this.."Hey Iran, we trade our ICBM tech for some of your nuclear rods..haha stupid Americans and Israelies.." So now it kinda does have me sketchy on what Iran and NK's intentions are..So is the US and Israel actually telling the truth?? We all know how messed up NK is..and them teaming with Iran.. Thats not a good sign...

Interesting, but I'm not sure that N. Korea believes in fundamental human rights, so it's hard to take that list very seriously, if N. Korea is involved.

I had never heard of the Non-Aligned Movement and had to google it. Despite having questionable members like Iran and N. Korea their stated goal sounds ok and they also have some more respectable members like India. Apparently they a relic from the cold war and have struggled to find relevance since the Cold War ended. However with unilateral actions such as the invasion of Iraq as well as both Russia and China throwing their weight around recently perhaps they are becoming more relevant again.

For a conspiracy site, you guys sure stick to the main story a lot.

Let's not forget that so far the "west" has been the initiator in all major conflicts of the last 2 decades. We were worried about nukes in Iraq and then spent what ten years standing around there wondering where they are.

Think about this story from the flip side. What if North Korea and Iran are genuinely concerned that their nuclear research will cause the west to attack them. This could be a more of a "share the work" kind of thing instead of a "ahahahahahhahahah lets attack america ahahahahahha" kind of meeting

From what I understand, not many people really know all that much about the new leader except who his father was, Of course he possibly follows the same rhetoric about threats over this or that, but I dont think he has lobbed any mortars or missiles over the boarder just yet.

The group may have ideals, that does not mean that they will always live up to every expectation or follow every line exactly, some western countries who are meant to follow the UN charter are still killing civilians in foreign countries.

The meeting probably has more to do with securing trade and oil as well as securing a partnership of alliances in a case of war, the whole idea of swapping nukes etc... is just put out there to once again show the threat of Iran to the western public as a reason they must be stopped.

I mean after all, read through this thread and we have already had 3 remarks about nuclear activity.
1.North Korea accelerated construction of nuclear facilities.
2.Iranians were there to see their last atomic test.
3.NK are back into nuclear research and ICBM's..And they're planing to meet with Iran.
Sorry, not buying into it, I prefer proof rather than bias speculation

Iran confirms N. Korea's Kim Jong-un won't attend NAM summit
SEOUL, Aug. 22 (Yonhap) -- Iran has confirmed North Korean leader Kim Jong-un will not attend a Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) summit to be hosted by Tehran next week, a senior Seoul official said Wednesday, denying a published foreign news report that Kim would take part.

"We verified from Iran's Foreign Ministry that the report is not true," the senior official at Seoul's foreign ministry said on condition of anonymity.
