Kim Jong Un visits China, meets Xi

Kim Jong-un speaks out in favor of denuclearizing Korean Peninsula at talks with Xi

Donald Trump has announced that Washington's chief diplomat, Mike Pompeo, is on his way to North Korea to prepare for a landmark nuclear summit between the USA president and his North Korea counterpart, Kim Jong-un.

Chinese President Xi Jinping (right) walks with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un during a meeting in Dalian in northeastern China's Liaoning Province.

China has been North Korea's only ally in the region though their relations took a nosedive of late over Pyongyang's reckless nuclear ambitions and also China's enforcing of the United Nation's sanctions imposed on the latter to curb its tests.

But that was also the case when Kim left North Korea for Beijing in an armored train to make his first foreign visit since taking power in 2011.

According to a recent poll, 88 percent of the South Korean public viewed the recent peace summit between North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and South Korean President Moon Jae-in as a success.

President Donald Trump said he will speak Tuesday with his Chinese counterpart.

National Basketball Association playoffs wrap 2018: Pelicans, Rockets dominate, make both series 2-1
New Orleans hasn't been almost as impressive as they were in the first round when they swept the No.3 seed Portland Trail Blazers. Thompson hasn't missed a free throw since the playoffs began (Neither has Curry), and has been shooting 46.5% from the field.

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.

Mnuchin's delegation wrapped up two days of talks with Chinese economic officials on Friday with only an agreement to keep talking.

Chinese media confirmed that Kim had visited and met with Xi, according to Reuters' Josh Smith.

Some analysts, including David Lampton, professor and director of China Studies at Johns Hopkins - SAIS and the former president of the National Committee on US-China Relations, have said the close timing of the high-level bilateral talks is cause for optimism, but that Beijing will not likely concede on at least one important US demand.

North Korea and Dalian do not have direct scheduled flights, it was reported by AP. No decision has been made yet on the venue, although Singapore and the South Korean border town of Panmunjom are believed to be in consideration.

Trump announced the planned telephone call in a post on Twitter, just days after a US delegation returned from discussions in Beijing last week with no agreement on a long list of USA demands, and ahead of more negotiations next week.

Indian Officials Upset By Lack Of Progress In Fighting Air Pollution
As per the ambient air quality report released by the in 2017, Lucknow had "good quality air" just for 17 days. But it seems the Indian government could also improve its efforts to fight air pollution.

Pompeo, who first traveled to North Korea as Central Intelligence Agency chief in early April, is only the second sitting secretary of state to visit the reclusive nation with which the U.S. is still technically at war.

Hong Kong's South China Morning Post newspaper cited two unidentified sources as saying that Xi had flown to Dalian on the coast east of Beijing to preside over the official launch of sea trials for China's first entirely self-built aircraft carrier.

The second summit between Kim and Xi came amid a flurry of top-level diplomacy over the North's nuclear weapons program. A status quo, it's worth noting, that means that the decades-long United States military presence in Korea will remain for decades more to come.

President Trump has agreed to meet with Kim at a now undisclosed location to discuss recently implemented U.S sanctions, and the discourse between the two world leaders have been troubling.

The US leader said last week the time and place will be announced soon.
