  • Mike Pompeo on his way to North Korea to prepare summit, Trump says

Chinese President Xi Jinping and North Korea's Supreme Leader Kim Jong-un met in the northeastern Chinese coastal city of Dalian on May 7 and 8, Xinhua announced.

This is the second informal summit Xi hosted after his last month's Wuhan summit with Prime Minister Narendra Modi during which Beijing said the two leaders reached "important consensus" and drew blueprint for future cooperation.

The March meeting was Kim's first worldwide trip since he assumed power in 2011 following his father's death, and was seen as a warming of ties between the two fractious allies.

"I think dialogue between Japan and North Korea should be resumed", Mr. Moon said in an interview Tuesday with the Japanese newspaper Yomiuri. The meeting occurred before Pompeo's nomination as secretary of state had been confirmed.

In a cordial and friendly atmosphere, both leaders had an all-round and in-depth exchange of views on China-North Korea relations and major issues of common concern.

State media said the two leaders met Monday and Tuesday in Dalian, a northern Chinese port city.

President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping are set to speak about trade and North Korea in a phone call on Tuesday morning, as Xi's top economic adviser plans additional talks in Washington following last week's trip by United States officials to Beijing. It said the United States was inconsistent in its approach two cases of nuclear proliferation in the world - one in Iran and other in North Korea and China feels its role could play big if the US's unpredictability fails to serve the real cause.

Warmbier's death escalated U.S.

Trump has said that withdrawing USA forces from South Korea is "not on the table".

"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", Xinhau reported.

Past trips by past North Korean leaders have also followed the pattern of being carried out quietly and only discussed after they are over.

Mr Kim told Mr Xi he hoped relevant parties would take "phased" and "synchronised" measures to realise denuclearisation and lasting peace on the Korean peninsula.

It said as a mid-term benefit, China will serve as an "indispensable facilitator for a political and peaceful resolution of the peninsula issue".

Shortly after the news of Kim-Xi summit in Dalian, Trump said he would speak with Xi on North Korea.

After was declared a visit of Kim to China, trump wrote on Twitter that after a telephone conversation with his "good friend" sea Tuesday - relationships and trust are built.

The call - which also addressed diplomatic breakthroughs regarding North Korea - came amid a flurry of bilateral diplomatic activity aimed at averting disruption to the world's largest trade relationship.

North Korea's state media reported that Kim traveled to Dalian via a special plane and he was accompanied by his powerful sister Kim Yo-jong and Ri Su-yong, a vice party chairman on global affairs.
