Seoul - Former United States Secretary of State in the Nixon and Ford administrations, Henry Kissinger, has been hospitalized in Seoul, South Korea as he was meeting with their President.
Henry Kissinger, former National Security Adviser, was admitted into a hospital based in Seoul on Saturday after experiencing a stomach ache, according to Press TV. An official at the Yonsei Severance Hospital said the 86-year-old ex-Diplomat is receiving treatment but is not in serious condition.
“He is getting hydration and holding his food down. All his signs are normal. We hope to send him on his way tomorrow, but he is an elderly gentleman, so we are watching him like a hawk,” said John Linton of the Seoul hospital.
Ria Novosti reports that Kissinger was set to leave on Saturday after meeting with South Korean President Lee Myung-bak on Friday but the hospital will discharge him on Sunday after his vital signs appeared to be normal. Kissinger arrived in South Korea on Wednesday to participate in a security forum.
Kissinger’s original schedule was to attend the Woodrow Wilson Award for Public Service dinner in Hong Kong after his visit to South Korea, notes Xinhua.
The German-born political scientist and major player in the U.S. foreign policy between the late 1960s and 1970s is a recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize for ending American involvement in the Viet Nam war when he negotiated the Paris Peace Accords.
