Kim in Beijing to meet with Jinping, US and South Korea halt military drill

Kim Jong-un is in China, exactly a week after a historic meet with US President Trump. Reuters has suggested that it is likely Kim Jong-un is in China to brief Chinese President Xi Jinping regarding his summit with Donald Trump last week in Singapore.

This is Kim Jong-un’s third visit to China, however, unlike previous visits, where Chinese media would only announce Kim’s visit after his departure, this time, they have made an announcement.

In the summit held last week, US President Trump and North Korean leader agreed that North Korea would denuclearize and Trump agreed to end ‘war games’.

South Korea and the Pentagon announced they would halt the annual Freedom Guardian military drill scheduled for August as per keeping their end of the agreement.
