Trump says will discuss trade, North Korea with China's Xi

According to Xinua news agency, the two leaders met when Kim Jong Un visited the Chinese port city.

Chinese officials will be heading to Tokyo for meetings on Wednesday with South Korean and Japanese counterparts as part of the recent burst of diplomacy over North Korea.

Previous agreements over North Korea's nuclear program - including the 1994 Agreed Framework and the 2005 Joint Statement from the Six Party Talks - also called for phased, incremental steps for North Korea to dismantle its nuclear program alongside sanctions relief and normalization of relations with the United States.

North Korea's state media reported that Kim travelled to Dalian via a special plane and was accompanied by his sister Kim Yo-jong and Ri Su-yong, a vice party chairman on worldwide affairs.

After was declared a visit of Kim to China, trump wrote on Twitter that after a telephone conversation with his "good friend" sea Tuesday - relationships and trust are built.

Speculation about Kim's visit to China started when security in Dalian, located close to the China-North Korea border, was increased and Kim's private jet was spotted at the airport of Dalian. Pyongyang claims Kim himself is the driver of the current situation and the spokesman said the USA should not to interpret Pyongyang's willingness to talk as a sign of weakness. A North Korean official on the Korean Central News Agency referred to the situation, stating "This act can not be construed otherwise than a risky attempt to ruin the hard-won atmosphere of dialogue and bring the situation back to square one".

It was Xi's second meeting with the reclusive North Korean leader in as many months.

The latest encounter in China comes before a scheduled meeting between North Korea and the US.

During a summit between leaders Kim Jong Un and Moon Jae-In, the two nations spoke of their desire to "become one" again.

"In a cordial and friendly atmosphere, the top leaders of the two parties and the two countries had an all-round and in-depth exchange of views on China-DPRK relations and major issues of common concern", Xinhua said.

Kim was accompanied to China by his sister, Kim Yo Jong, who has played a leading role in diplomatic overtures by the long-isolated country.

Under such circumstances, Kim, chairman of the North's State Affairs Commission, paid a visit to China only 40 days after his last trip to Beijing - which was also his first - in late March.

By not asking the USA to reduce or remove its military presence in South Korea during negotiations, North Korea has failed to advance Chinese interests in the talks.

South Korea's presidential office said the Chinese government notified Seoul about the Xi-Kim meeting in advance.

The event occurred after it was publicised that US President Donald Trump would meet Kim over a historic summit around May end of early June.

Chinese internet users posting on social media described heavy security in the city and extensive flight delays on Monday.
