  • High-ranking North Korean official may be visiting China's Dalian

Mr Xi hosted a welcome banquet for Mr Kim and the two leaders strolled along the coastline at a government guesthouse and had lunch together on Tuesday, the official Xinhua News Agency reported.

However, state broadcaster CCTV quoted Xi as saying China "supports North Korea to stick to denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula and supports North Korea and the U.S.in solving the peninsula issue through dialogue and consultation".

Trump said last week the time and place for his much-anticipated meeting with the North Korean leader has been decided, and will shortly be made public.

"This embodies the great importance that Comrade Chairman and the WPK Central Committee have attached to the relations between the two parties and the two countries, and to their strategic communication".

"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 sees the US's missile defenses and forces in South Korea as a serious threat and a mechanism to contain Beijing.

"These are the positive outcomes of the historic meeting between me and Comrade General Secretary", he said. 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.

The top leaders of China and North Korea have had a second meeting, close on the heels of their first summit from March 25-28. The devil, as always, is in the details of what these steps will look like, how they will be verified or enforced, and what the end goal looks like for the Korean Peninsula (including the question of the US troop presence).

Trump has tested the Supreme Leader of North Korea over Twitter before, openly mocking him over his weight and referring to Kim as "Rocket Man". Xinhua also paraphrased Kim as giving the slightest hint of what sort of outcome we can expect from the upcoming Trump-Kim summit. In retaliation, the North had sent over balloons carrying anti-South leaflets, along with starting their own broadcasts.

Ahead of Kim's visit to Dalian, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi had air dashed to Pyongyang to prepare the ground for the informal summit.

China's Global Times also came up with a piece on Monday, May 7, explaining why China plays an indispensable role for peace in the Korean Peninsula.

It was not known how long the Xi-Kim meeting had been planned or why Dalian was chosen.

The reports by Chinese officials did not specify what was talked about, except for an "exchange of views on China-DPRK relations and major issues of common concern".

He also called for people-to-people ties between the two countries. "Both sides have pressure as the implementation date of tariffs related to the 301 investigation draws near", Yong added.
