Kissinger released from hospital

Sun., March 14, 2010

SEOUL, South Korea – Former U.S. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger was released from a Seoul hospital today after recovering from stomach pains, a hospital spokesman said.

Kissinger’s condition was “not serious” while he was being treated at Seoul’s Severance Hospital and he had recovered after a day of medical treatment, spokesman Han Jin-ho said.

Han said Kissinger didn’t receive any major treatment like surgery, but didn’t elaborate.

The 86-year-old Nobel Peace Prize laureate arrived in the South Korean capital earlier in the week to attend a security forum. He also met with the country’s President Lee Myung-bak.
