Kim Jong-un visits China after Trump summit

Kim Jong-un visits China after Trump summit

U.S. President Donald Trump surprised officials in Seoul and Washington when he pledged to end "war games" after his summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Singapore last week.

Chinese state media continue to provide glowing coverage of visits of Chinese delegations to North Korea, as well as the country's potential for economic growth. On previous visits by North Korean leaders, including those of Kim's father Kim Jong Il and grandfather Kim Il Sung, the news of the visits were not announced until after the they had left the country.

Security was tight at the Beijing airport where paramilitary police prevented journalists from shooting photos.

The visit would also serve to underline that Kim is adhering to a request made by Xi at their first meeting in Beijing.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo rushed to the Chinese capital to brief Xi and other top leaders soon after the Trump-Kim meeting.

The visit comes as the United States, which relies on China to enforce sanctions against Pyongyang, stands on the brink of a potential trade war with Beijing, adding an extra layer of uncertainty and a possible pressure point to be exploited by North Korea's powerful ally.

The month is spent fasting from sunrise to sunset, which is one of the Five Pillars of Islam and is mandatory for most adults. Earlier, the Pakistan Meteorological Department, had said that it was unlikely the Shawwal moon will be sighted on Thursday.

Exercises are considered by Pentagon officials as an important aspect of the U.S.

Kim also had North Korea's key nuclear testing site dismantled before an worldwide troupe of reporters on May 24, ahead of the June 12 summit with Trump, signaling his nation's move toward denuclearization.

Trump separately announced that he had made a decision to halt military exercises with South Korea, describing the "war games" as too costly and "provocative" - a frequent North Korean criticism of the drills.

The decision to halt military exercises in South Korea has bewildered many current and former USA defence officials, who only learned about it when Trump made his remarks after the Singapore meeting. "There's no moral equivalency between the actions on the part [of North Korea] and our legal, justified activities". "He got an equally broad security commitment from the United States, very vague", said Rice, who served in the Obama administration. Analysts said Beijing appeared to be trying to normalize such visits.

Cheng Xiaohe, an associate professor at Renmin University's School of International Studies in Beijing, said the frequency of Kim's visits was "unprecedented".

The outing comes as China has sought to strengthen its role as a mediator between the United States and North Korea, where Beijing claims compelling security and economic interests.

"I believe that indicates that the blood alliance between the North and China has been completely restored", Yang said.

Trump recently ordered tariffs on $50 billion in Chinese goods in retaliation for alleged intellectual property theft.

In 1972, top-level diplomats of both countries engineered a summit between the arch-anticommunist U.S. President Richard Nixon and Chinese leader Mao Zedong, resulting in a fundamental reorientation of Sino-U.S. relations.

Kim previously met with President Xi Jinping in Beijing and Dalien in March and May. "There is no impact on Pacific exercises outside of the Korean Peninsula", she said.

Following Trump's decision to suspend the war games, speculation has surged that the allies might halt three major exercises: the UFG and springtime Key Resolve and Foal Eagle exercises.
