Xi Expresses Support for N. Korea-US Dialogue, Denuclearization

The North Korean leader Kim Jong-un met President Xi of China in the coastal city of Dalian this month in what is being seen as an effort to strengthen relations between the neighbouring countries.

China's state-run Xinhua news service and North Korean media called the DPRK's delegation a "friendship visiting group".

The group led by Pak Thae-song, a member of the Political Bureau and vice chairman of the Central Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea, arrived in Beijing on Monday.

Xi reportedly said that China supports the improvement of inter-Korean relations, the promotion of dialogue between North Korea and the USA, denuclearization on the Korean Peninsula and North Korea's development of its economy.

"He noted with pleasure that he met Chairman Kim Jong Un two times and exchanged the comprehensive and detailed views on the matters of concern including the development of the relations between the two parties and the two countries and the regional and global situation", it added.

The rush to get in on a North Korea peace boom in China's northeast has also laid bare the difficulties Beijing faces in trying to tamp down property speculation.

"This (meeting) embodies the great importance Chairman Kim and the WPK Central Committee have attached to enhancing exchanges between the two parties and the two countries, and deepening China-DPRK friendly cooperation", Xi said.

Kim's visits overseas indicated an apparent shift in Pyongyang's diplomatic posture, though momentum may have recently stalled with the DPRK threatening to cancel an upcoming summit with U.S. President Donald Trump scheduled for June 12.

Kim's threat on Wednesday to cancel the June summit with US President Donald Trump aside, there is excitement in the air in the border town of Dandong, with expectations that China will be letting up on sanctions soon.

The spokesperson also commented on the North's cancellation of an inter-Korean ministerial meeting scheduled for Wednesday.
