China Hosts Surprise Visit by Kim Jong Un Amid US Tensions

By James Griffiths and Yong Xiong, CNN 1 hour ago

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un made his fourth visit to China this week, arriving in the country for a three-day visit at the invitation of Chinese President Xi Jinping, according to state media.

Kim's visit -- which coincides with the young leader's birthday -- comes as US and Chinese negotiators are trying to hash out the ongoing trade war between those two nations, one that is already starting to bite in China.

In a report Tuesday, the state-run Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) said Kim left Pyongyang Monday afternoon with his wife Ri Sol Ju. He was also accompanied by key diplomats, KCNA added, including Kim Yong Chol, who has overseen negotiations with the US and other foreign countries.

"He was warmly seen off by leading officials of the Party, government and armed forces organs at the railway station," the news agency said.
