Kim Jong-un in China, third visit since March

Beijing, June 19 : North Korean leader Kim Jong-un is on a two-day visit to China  from Tuesday, his third such trip to the its close ally since March this year.

The news was confirmed by the Chinese state media on Tuesday morning.

Kim’s visit comes just after his historic meet with US President Donald Trump in on June 12 Singapore where the two leaders pledged to denuclearise the Korean Peninsula.

Both the leaders have signed a document reaffirming a commitment to the “complete denuclearization” of the Korean peninsula.

In their joint declaration after meeting in Singapore, Mr. Trump and Mr. Kim pledged to move ahead with the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula. But the wording of the agreement has been widely criticized as vague, with no clear timelines.

On his first visit to China, in March,  Kim arrived to Beijing aboard an armored train, and he spent two days in the capital for talks with President Xi Jinping. In May,  Kim visited the port city of Dalian, also spending time with  Xi.
