Chinese President Xi Jinping and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un have met in China for unannounced talks ahead of an expected summit involving Kim and U.S. President Donald Trump.

Chinese officials will be heading to Tokyo for meetings on Wednesday with South Korean and Japanese counterparts as part of the recent burst of diplomacy over North Korea.

According to South Korea, Kim says he's willing to give up his nukes if the United States commits to a formal end to the Korean War and pledges not to attack the North.

Kim and Trump will reportedly occur in late May or early June, and make history as the first time a sitting U.S. president has met a sitting North Korean leader.

After was declared a visit of Kim to China, trump wrote on Twitter that after a telephone conversation with his "good friend" sea Tuesday - relationships and trust are built.

North Korean state media KCTV said Kim flew to Dalian on Monday on his private jet, where he was welcomed by high-profile Chinese officials including Foreign Minister Wang Yi.

The North Korean government is infamous for its long history of cruel leaders with fragile egos.

Xi held a welcome banquet for the North Korean leader and took a casual stroll with him along a beach, Chinese state media Xinhua reported.

He argues that the harsh regulations pushed North Korea towards neighboring allies. What we had none of was the enthusiasm expressed by the vast majority of the South Korean public-who, incidentally, have quite a bit more to lose if this is indeed all a sinister ploy.

The three still being held are Korean-American missionary Kim Dong Chul; Kim Sang-duk, who spent a month teaching at the foreign-funded Pyongyang University of Science and Technology (PUST) before he was arrested in 2017, and Kim Hak Song, who also taught at PUST.

Kim's second trip to China could be a demonstration of solidarity with Beijing or to double-check the solidity of Pyongyang's "insurance policy" with Beijing in case the Trump-Kim summit is canceled or postponed.

Trump and Kim are expected to meet later this month or early in June for talks that would have been almost unthinkable a year ago, when the two mercurial leaders were trading barbs and Pyongyang tested a barrage of missiles.

Under such circumstances, Kim, chairman of the North's State Affairs Commission, paid a visit to China only 40 days after his last trip to Beijing - which was also his first - in late March.

The event occurred after it was publicised that US President Donald Trump would meet Kim over a historic summit around May end of early June. A status quo, it's worth noting, that means that the decades-long U.S. military presence in Korea will remain for decades more to come.

Internet users in China said security was beefed up in Dalian and flight delays happened.
