The decision to put off the Monday speech came ahead of what could be a pivotal meeting on the U.S.-China trade war between U.S. President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping on the sidelines of a G20 summit in Osaka, Japan, next week. “There is room for progress, and even if incremental, we didn’t want to step on that potential,” a White House official said, speaking on condition of anonymity about why the speech was called off.

Xi visits North Korea's Kim ahead of Trump talks

Xi visits North Korea's Kim ahead of Trump talksNorth Korean leader Kim Jong Un welcomed Chinese President Xi Jinping to Pyongyang on Thursday on a historic visit to burnish an uneasy alliance, with the two men each facing challenges of their own with US President Donald Trump. Xi is the first Chinese president to visit North Korea in 14 years, after relations between the Cold War era allies deteriorated over Pyongyang’s nuclear provocations and Beijing’s subsequent backing of UN sanctions. The North Korean leader has now visited his older ally four times in China and Pyongyang has been increasingly keen for Xi to reciprocate, while according to diplomats Beijing has been biding its time to see how nuclear talks between Kim and Trump play out.
