Trump to discuss trade with China's Xi as talks continue

Trump: Mike Pompeo landing in North Korea as Iran nuclear deal is nixed

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has held a surprise second summit in two months with China's president Xi Jinping, meeting his country's staunchest ally ahead of a planned forthcoming summit with USA president Donald Trump.

North Korean state media KCTV said Kim flew to Dalian on his private jet, arriving on Monday, where he was welcomed by high-profile Chinese officials including Foreign Minister Wang Yi.

Chinese state media showed pictures of Kim smiling in an outdoors meeting with Xi, and the two leaders strolling along a waterfront.

"At a crucial time when the regional situation is developing rapidly, Kim said he came to China again to meet with (Xi) and inform him of the situation", Xinhau reported.

During his visit on Monday and Tuesday, Kim told Xi he hoped relevant parties would take "phased" and "synchronised" measures to realise denuclearisation and lasting peace on the Korean peninsula.

"China and the DPRK are close neighbours and we maintain normal communication and exchanges with each other", Geng said, using North Korea's official acronym. The Trump administration has demanded that North Korea immediately commit to denuclearization.

"The President has a great relationship with President Xi and we are working on something we think will be great for everybody", Sanders said in Washington. DPRK is an acronym for North Korea's formal name, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.

"President Trump affirmed his commitment to ensuring that the trade and investment relationship between the United States and China is balanced and benefits American businesses and workers".

China is the only ally of North and their ties date back to the Korean War of 1950-53 when Beijing stood by Pyongyang against the South.

South Korea's presidential office said the Chinese government notified Seoul about the Xi-Kim meeting in advance. Together, they also took a stroll and attended a luncheon, the report said. "This meeting is one that carries the will of President Trump and State Affairs Commission Chairman Kim Jong Un", she said, using Kim's formal title.

Pompeo's latest visit followed talks between Kim and South Korean President Moon Jae-in met on April 27 at the heavily fortified demilitarized zone between the countries, the first summit for the two Koreas in over a decade.

Trump was asked to expand on the matter after he finished his speech and had signed a memorandum to pull the US from the Iran agreement.

Hong Kong's South China Morning Post newspaper cited two unidentified sources as saying that Mr Xi had flown to Dalian on the coast east of Beijing to preside over the official launch of sea trials for China's first entirely self-built aircraft carrier. It said a North Korean plane was seen parked at the city's airport.
