Japan to halt missile attack drills after Trump-Kim summit

Xi Jinping praises Kim for Trump summit

The second day of Kim's visit to Beijing was all about economic tutelage.

Kim made the promise to Chinese president Xi Jinping during his third trip to Beijing since March, a visit which observers see as further helping to rebuild historic ties between the two former Cold War allies.

Kim was expected to have sought China's help with getting relief from the sanctions during his visit.

Kim said he believed that under the strong leadership of the CPC Central Committee with Xi at the core, and the guidance of Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era, the Chinese Dream of the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation will definitely be realized.

At his summit with Trump last week in Singapore, Kim pledged to work toward denuclearization in exchange for USA security guarantees.

North Korea released new propaganda posters online last month, promoting the April 27 Panmunjom Declaration and recent improved inter-Korean relations, though Beard said he did not spot these on display Pyongyang and that these were not on sale in the souvenir shops.

During his latest visit, Kim was accompanied by his top economic official, Premier Pak Pong-ju, on a visit to the Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences.

-Chinese relations also serve to diminish the likelihood that China will continue to cooperate with the international-sanctions regime.

The performance is part of a delicate balancing act for Kim, who analysts say is seeking to play United States and Chinese interests off each other while maintaining good relations with Beijing, his economic patron and diplomatic protector.

"I think the first move here is really for North Korea to make", Bolton told Fox News on Wednesday.

Pak's appearance in Beijing showed Pyongyang had expanded its negotiating team, said Baik Tae-hyun, a spokesman for the South Korean Unification Ministry.

A report by the Korean Central News Agency said Kim expressed his gratitude to Xi in a meeting on Tuesday, during which Xi "gave high appreciation and extended heartfelt congratulations" to Kim over the summit.

He added that after the US-North Korea summit, the Trump administration has taken steps in accordance with the agreement reached between the two sides, but Kim has yet to take corresponding action, referring to the decision to suspend joint South Korea-US military drills.

In Singapore last week, the trio joined Kim for a meeting with Trump and his team of Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, White House Chief of Staff John Kelly and National Security Adviser John Bolton.

Mr. Xi said China is pleased that "the momentum for dialogue and easing of situation on the Korean Peninsula has been effectively strengthened", according to Xinhua.

North Korea announced before the Singapore summit the suspension of its ICBM testing and also closed its nuclear bomb test site, where it conducted several explosions in front of visiting media that it said were to destroy testing tunnels.
