PressTV-N Korea’s Kim in China for 4th summit with President Xi

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has arrived in China at the invitation of President Xi Jinping, only days after warning he would take an “alternative path” if the United States kept his country under pressure and sanctions.

Kim and his wife, Ri Sol-ju, arrived in Beijing for a three-day visit on Tuesday, Chinese and North Korean media reported.

In a report earlier in the day, the official news agency of the North, the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA), said Kim had left the capital, Pyongyang, on Monday afternoon with his wife and a delegation of key diplomats, including Kim Yong-chol, who has led negotiations with the US and other countries in the past.

South Korea’s media had reported earlier that a heavily armored train “possibly carrying a senior official” had crossed the North’s border into China on Monday.
