Chinese President Xi Jinping’s two-day state visit to North Korea, which came against the backcloth of renewed correspondence between US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un attracted a great deal of attention as it was the first time in 14 years that China’s top official had arrived in Pyongyang. The talks centered on political and economic cooperation between the two countries, the situation in the region and the dialogue between North Korea and the United States.
