North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is in Beijing this week, his fourth visit in a less than a year. The trip comes as Chinese and U.S. officials held a second day of trade talks and as Kim prepares for a second possible meeting with President Donald Trump.
Analysts say the visit is likely to be an opportunity for the two countries to discuss North Korea™s plans for another meeting with Trump. When the two met for the first time last March, they agreed to communicate more with each other about domestic and international affairs.
China™s Xi Jinping and Kim Jong Un held three summits last year before and after meetings with Trump and South Korean President Moon Jae-in.
During his visit this week, which ends on Thursday, Kim will be looking for assurances that if talks with the United States fail, it will still have support from China, says Shi Yinhong, a political science professor at Beijing™s Renmin University.
