North Korea Reportedly Committed to Second Summit With Trump

The train used by North Korean leader Kim Jong Un departs from Beijing on Wednesday

The site that Mr Kim and Mr Trump will pick for the next meeting has been attracting keen attention, especially after South Korean President Moon Jae-in said on Thursday that the summit will take place soon.

Chinese media suggested Mr Xi had given the green light to a second summit between Kim and President Trump, following their historic meeting in Singapore in June, 2018, prior to which Kim also travelled to Beijing for talks with China's President.

The leaders were seen to have discussed North Korea's plans for a second summit with U.S. President Trump.

Moon said resolving the issue of the North Korea sanctions hinges on how fast North Korea denuclearizes and whether it receives reciprocal measures from the United States.

"Corresponding measures must be devised in order to facilitate North Korea's continued denuclearization efforts", he added, such as the United States agreeing a "peace regime" and formally declaring an end to the 1950-53 Korean War.

Xinhua also said that Kim and Xi agreed to make efforts for continuous "new development", a "political settlement process of the Korean Peninsula" and "more benefits" for the people of the two countries and that they would contribute to peace and stability, prosperity and development of the region and beyond.

Xi told Kim that that China supports the U.S.

"Chairman Kim Jong Un's visit to China was at the invitation of President Xi Jinping, of course President Xi would hold meetings and talks with him", Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Lu Kang said at a regular press briefing, adding that more details would be released later.

North Korea wants relief from the multiple sets of sanctions imposed on it over its nuclear weapons and ballistic missile programmes, while the United States wants the measures to remain in place until it gives up its arms - something Pyongyang has made no public promise to do.

North Korea has repeatedly invited Xi to visit Pyongyang.

Despite sanctions, China remains North Korea's main trading partner and benefactor, accounting for 90 percent of the reclusive nation's imports.

It's going to be another year of Korea summits.

Kim Jong-un visits a Tong Ren Tang pharmaceutical plant in Yizhuang, Beijing on Wednesday.

The North Korean leader's trip to China this week was a sign a second Trump-Kim summit was "imminent", he added. Mr Kim has been visiting Beijing this week to project an image of a strong Pyongyang-Beijing alliance in advance of a second potential summit.

Kim "raised concern" about the impasse in talks with the USA, according to Pyongyang's official KCNA news agency, which said the Chinese leader had issued a ringing endorsement of the North's position.

It said he met with Xi at the Great Hall of the People on Tuesday after a welcoming ceremony.

Washington asserts Kim accepted the "final, fully verified denuclearization of North Korea", while Pyongyang says the deal implied a step-by-step approach where its actions were simultaneously met by US responses.

Mr Kim told Mr Xi about the difficulties and concerns in improving North Korea-US relations and denuclearisation negotiations, KCNA said.

Kim spent a little more than a day in the Chinese capital and was en route to Pyongyang by 2 p.m. Wednesday local time, Yonhap News Agency of South Korea reported, citing unidentified officials.

"We always believe that, as key parties to the Korean Peninsula issue, it's important for the two sides to maintain contact and we always support their dialogue to achieve positive outcomes", Lu said.
