The North Korean president, Kim Jong-un, landed on Tuesday (19.06.2018) in Beijing to meet with his Chinese counterpart, Xi Jinping, who will report for two days on the results of his historic meeting with the US leader, Donald Trump, According to the official news agency Xinhua.

This is Kim’s third visit to China since March, when he made his first trip abroad since taking office in 2011, but this is the first time that the visit of a top North Korean leader has not been performed in secret.

Meanwhile, the United States and South Korea suspended joint military exercises scheduled for August, the Pentagon reported. The cancellation follows promises made by President Trump during the summit held last week with the North Korean leader in Singapore. “In keeping with the commitment of President Trump and in agreement with our ally the Republic of Korea,” the suspension of the exercises has been ordered, explained spokeswoman Dana White.

Replying to the arguments of the North Korean leader, Trump considered that these simulations are “provocative” for Pyongyang and also “too expensive”. The head of the White House also speculated on the withdrawal of some 28,500 US troops from South Korea.
