N. Korea's Kim shows unity with China's Xi in first foreign trip

N. Korea's Kim shows unity with China's Xi in first foreign tripNorth Korean leader Kim Jong Un was given a lavish welcome by Chinese President Xi Jinping during a secretive trip to Beijing as both sides try to repair frayed relations before Pyongyang’s landmark summits with Seoul and Washington. US President Donald Trump welcomed the Beijing meeting and said there was now a “good chance” Kim would scrap his nuclear weapons — but warned that sanctions must stay in force in the meantime. On his first trip abroad since taking power, Kim and his wife were greeted by an honour guard and a banquet hosted by Xi, according to state media, which confirmed the “unofficial” visit on Wednesday only after Kim had returned by train to North Korea.
