White House optimistic after Kim Jong Un's secret meeting in China

30 March 2018

The talks were the first between the two Koreas since the delegation returned from the North.

Little is known about Ri Sol-ju's background, although her marriage to Kim was officially announced by North Korean state media on July 25 2012.

"When China supported worldwide sanctions imposed against North Korea, some experts speculated that Beijing no longer considers Pyongyang its ally".

President Donald Trump went so far as to venture that there is now "a good chance" that peace between North Korea and the USA can be established.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un pledged his commitment to denuclearisation and to meet U.S. officials, China said on Wednesday after his meeting with President Xi Jinping, who promised China would uphold friendship with its isolated neighbour.

Daily NK's sources inside North Korea have been listening to chatter and speaking with locals in the country's markets and other public spaces in recent days in order to gauge the current situation, finding that a popular conclusion among residents upon hearing the rumors was that sanctions would soon be lifted.

There looks to be more changes coming on that front, too, now that North and South Korea are set to hold their first summit in more than ten years. According to Korean Central News Agency, Kim Jong Un praised China and its leader Xi Jinping stating, "Under the wise command of the Communist Party of China, we will achieve better scientific performance".

In the course of their meeting, both sides reportedly reaffirmed their strong ties and stressed the importance of maintaining peace and stability on the Korean peninsula.

Donald Trump has high hopes for the forthcoming summit which could bring back peace in the region.

Mr. Kim offered then to meet directly with Mr. Trump, who quickly accepted.

Xi and Kim held some talks at the Great Hall of the People in Tiananmen Square. The North Korean leader was treated to a lavish welcome by the Chinese president during an unannounced trip as both sides seek to fix frayed ties ahead of landmark summits with Seoul and Washington.

When North Korea talks of denuclearization, it says it's possible if the U.S. ends its "hostile policy" toward North Korea.

Pessimists call that reading naïve, arguing that Kim's overtures are primarily meant to lure South Korea into shedding its reliance on American security and maneuvering the United States off the Korean Peninsula.

"We don't need China to buy more chips", the source said, adding that USA industry was concerned about being targeted by Chinese non-tariff barriers.

Bolton has warned against drawing out negotiations and has claimed the meeting will be cut short if Trump determines Kim is not "serious about denuclearization".

"The talk with Kim Jong-Un hasn't occurred yet - and I think there's certainly some doubt in my mind as to whether it's going to happen", he tells OneNewsNow. The last North Korean missile test was in November, which capped a year in which Kim authorized a record number of them and unveiled missiles capable of reaching US cities.

"At least one of the things that Kim would want out of these meetings is a way forward to begin to ease those sanctions and support from China in that effort", said Glaser, the Asia expert. Kim's visit to Beijing shows that China is a key player in the Korean drama, and may emerge the biggest victor.

His grandfather Kim Il Sung, who ruled the country from its founding in 1948 until his death in 1994, and his father, Kim Jong Il, who ruled from 1994 until his death in 2011, both traveled overseas on heavily armored luxury trains.
