Friday News Roundup - International
South Korea’s efforts to reconcile with an isolated North Korea caught the attention of politicos and sports fans this week when they announced they will march and compete in unity at next month’s Olympic Games.
In Syria, the government made clear that it would rather go it alone, rejecting U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson’s plan for the American military to stay engaged.
And in the United Kingdom, British Prime Minister Theresa May has appointed a minister for lonliness.
You’re never alone on Fridays when you listen to the International News Roundup.
