In view of the stalled negotiations with the United States over its nuclear weapons program, North Korea has now demonstrated its proximity to China.

North Korean ruler Kim Jong Un had consulted with Chinese President Xi Jinping on regional and global issues, North Korea’s state media reported on Friday. Both sides agreed at their meeting the day before that it was in their mutual interest to promote relations in the face of “serious and complex changes in the international and regional situation”.

The meeting took place in a “serious and open atmosphere”, it was said. However, the reports did not deal with the nuclear talks.

On the first visit by a Chinese president to the sealed-off neighboring country in 14 years, Xi on Thursday called on the governments of North Korea and the United States to resume their negotiations. Kim said that the international community generally hoped that both countries would produce results, the Chinese broadcaster CCTV reported.

Kim was quoted as saying, he has so far received no positive response from the “appropriate party,” .

The second summit between Kim and Donald Trump had failed in late February in Vietnam. Both sides could not agree on the central issue of nuclear disarmament in North Korea. Pyongyang called for a relaxation of international sanctions. However, the US government intends to maintain the sanctions as long as the risk associated with the North Korean nuclear weapons program remains intact. Trump is expected to meet with Xi on the sidelines of the G20 summit in Japan late next week. North Korea should also be an important topic.

Xi Jinping’s two-day state visit to North Korea highlights the improvement in relations between the two traditional allies.

Kim made a pompous welcome to his guest. Hundreds of thousands of people in the capital Pyongyang greeted the Chinese delegation with flags and flowers. In the evening, according to the North Korean reports, Kim held a banquet in honor of the guest. Later, both saw a cultural mass performance in Pyongyang.
