Relations between North Korea and its long-time ally China have warmed in the past month following a surprise visit by Kim to Beijing in late March, for a meeting with Xi . North Korean state media at the time said that Xi had accepted an invitation to visit Pyongyang during Kim’s trip.
It’s the latest development in a flurry of diplomacy over recent weeks on the Korean Peninsula. Sources told CNN Tuesday that CIA director Mike Pompeo visited North Korea around April 1 and met Kim to lay the groundwork for the summit with Trump.
Next week Kim will meet with South Korean President Moon Jae-in, who has led a diplomatic push to engage North Korea, in the demilitarized zone between the two countries.
