Kim Jong-un and Xi Jinping hold surprise second summit

China's Xi Meets Kim Jong Un for Second Time in Two Months

Xi and Kim had a surprise Wuhan-style informal summit at the northeastern port city of Dalian yesterday and today.

The North Korean official flew in a private plane and arrived at Dalian airport on Monday amid heavy security, Yonhap said. Japan, the host of the talks, has been pushing the United States to continue a tough line against Pyongyang.

The North Korean leader, reportedly, told Xi he hoped relevant parties would take "phased" and "synchronised" measures to realise denuclearisation and lasting peace on the Korean peninsula. What we had none of was the enthusiasm expressed by the vast majority of the South Korean public-who, incidentally, have quite a bit more to lose if this is indeed all a sinister ploy.

Xi, meanwhile, said that "The teams of both sides can maintain communication and strive to find a solution to the problems that exist, so as to achieve mutually beneficial and win-win results", according to a report in Chinese state media.

The meeting Monday and Tuesday in Dalian is the second between Xi and Kim in recent weeks, following Kim's March visit to Beijing - his first since taking power six years ago.

After the shooting, Snyder went back to his house where he barricaded himself inside during an hours-long standoff with police. Snyder's wife allegedly told police the slaughter began after she ran out of her home after being held there over the weekend.

Beijing is keen to avoid being left out in the cold as North Korea holds talks with South Korea and the United States. "Kim Jong Un is looking for advice, support and encouragement", he told CNN.

Xi said the momentum of dialogue and alleviation of tension on the peninsula is being consolidated in the direction that is conducive to a political solution, it said.

The front pages of Chinese evening newspapers show China's President Xi Jinping meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Beijing on March 28. We are also impressed by the fact that Kim had his second summit with Xi in Dalian, where the first China-built aircraft carrier will embark on a test voyage later this month.

The young leader stirred up tensions on the Korean Peninsula with his nuclear weapons testing and purging of several key officials close to Beijing, including his uncle, Jang Song Thaek.

However, when Kim became the leader of North Korea, the relationship between the two nations soured a bit.

He is the scion of a famous political dynasty and son of late former prime minister Omar Karame, who was an ally of Damascus. That, and its intervention in Iraq and Yemen, has led several oil-rich Gulf states to also name it as a terrorist group.

"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", Xinhua said.

Mnuchin's delegation wrapped up two days of talks with Chinese economic officials on Friday with only an agreement to keep talking.

Trump and Xi agreed on the importance of maintaining sanctions on Pyongyang until it permanently dismantles its nuclear and missile programs, the White House said.

"We're prepared to meet anyone who can speak on behalf of the North Korean government and give us solid answers so we're prepared", Pompeo said to reporters, according to Washington Post reporter David Nakamura.

As inter-Korean talks continue and a summit between Kim and President Donald Trump looms, Xi may be looking to insert China into the dialogue which has appeared to put USA interests first.
