White House optimistic after Kim Jong Un's secret meeting in China

  • The Chinese government confirmed Wednesday that North Korea's leader Kim Jong Un left went to Beijing and met with Chinese President Xi Jinping in Mr. Kim's first known trip to a foreign country since assuming power in 2011

According to state media, the meeting between Xi and Kim means that all the stakeholders on the Korean peninsula have been addressed and the planned meeting between Trump, RoK President Moon Jae-in and Kim will have more chance of success.

According to the Yomiuri Shimbun, Abe added "It is imperative that North Korea dismantle its nuclear and missile programs completely, verifiably and irreversibly".

On Tuesday, Chinese internet users kept each other abreast, speculating about the enigmatic guests' visits to Beijing sites including Zhongguancun, one of China's technology hubs, before the entourage is believed to have boarded the train they had arrived on a day earlier. The visit is Kim's first trip to another country since taking power in 2011, and it follows North Korea's recent agreement to hold talks with the leaders of South Korea and the United States.

Kim Jong Un's predecessors, grandfather Kim Il Sung and father Kim Jong Il, both promised not to pursue nuclear weapons but secretly maintained programmes to develop them, culminating in the North's first nuclear test in 2006 under Kim Jong Il.

However, if the summit goes right, it would be one of the most consequential moves which no other president in the United States could do.

It is not known why Kim Jong Un made a decision to take the train to Beijing rather than fly there. -North Korean summit slated for May will produce the breakthrough that Washington wants.

The couple will also invite 100 students from two local schools in Windsor that have a strong affiliation with Windsor Castle . They also claimed that Princess Diana was also present at Prince William and Kate Middleton's wedding in 2011.

Ending six years of worldwide seclusion, Kim was spirited into Beijing by special train under tight security like his father before him.

Officials did it in part by scrubbing from the country's internet Chinese characters for "Kim Jong Un", "North Korea" and Kim's popular nicknames among Chinese, such as "Fatty Fatty", Business Insider reported.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un told his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping that he is committed to denuclearisation as the dictator made a secret trip to China ahead of his landmark meeting with US President Donald Trump.

"It's possible that Kim Jong Un has a different meaning in mind", said Denmark, now director of the Asia program at the Wilson Center think tank. He told him that the "traditional friendship, established and cultivated meticulously by the elder generations of leaders of both parties and both countries, is the precious wealth of both sides". Kim's visit to Beijing shows that China is a key player in the Korean drama, and may emerge the biggest victor.

"Good chance" N. Korean leader will do "what is right"
Lawmakers are increasingly focused on their re-elections this fall in what is set to be a hard campaign cycle for Republicans. Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, a close ally of the president, is anxious about a less than ideal outcome.

"There is no question that my first foreign visit would be to the Chinese capital", it quoted Kim as saying, calling it a "noble obligation". The Chinese envoy is also scheduled to meet the South Korean president on Friday.

Many people were speculating, so authorities chose to censor terms and nicknames relating to the North Korean leader.
