Kim Jong Un heads to Beijing—reports
SEOUL — North Korean leader Kim Jong-un may visit Beijing soon to meet Chinese President Xi Jinping to discuss cooperation after his historic summit with U.S. President Donald Trump, a media report said Tuesday.
A special Air Koryo flight headed to Beijing from Pyongyang on Tuesday, fanning speculations that North Korean leader Kim Jong-un is making his third trip to China.
Japanese media had reported earlier in the day that Beijing and Pyongyang were making arrangements for a meeting between Kim and Chinese President Xi Jinping. According to the reports, Kim is scheduled to arrive in Beijing some time Tuesday.
If the meeting is held, it will be the third time for Kim to meet the Chinese leader.
Citing unnamed sources, the reports claimed that Kim‘s latest trip to Beijing would focus on his recent meeting with US President Donald Trump.
The North Korean leader and Trump met in Singapore on June 12, and agreed to seek ways to denuclearize and to improve bilateral relations.
