seoul - The North Korean leader, Kim Jong-un, paid an unofficial visit to China from Sunday to Wednesday. There the North Korean leader met with the Chinese president Xi Jinping. This is confirmed by the Chinese state press agency Xinhua and the North Korean news agency KCNA.

It was Kim's first visit abroad since he came to power in 2011. Just like his father Kim Jong-il, he traveled to China in a special armored train and has since returned to North Korea.

According to the Chinese news agency, the two leaders had a meeting in the Great Hall of the People in Beijing. During the talks, Xi made four proposals for improving the relationship with North Korea. Kim has told the Chinese president that he is prepared to denuclearize on the Korean peninsula and meet the US.

'The problem of the denuclearization of the Korean peninsula can be solved, if South Korea and the United States respond to our gestures of goodwill, want an atmosphere of peace and stability and at the same time also want to take forward-looking measures for the realization of peace. 'said 34-year-old Kim.

Xi emphasized that the friendship between both countries must continue. The Chinese president has also accepted an invitation from Kim to visit North Korea.

The White House has announced that President Trump was briefed by China on Kim's visit on Tuesday. 'We understand from these developments that our campaign of maximum pressure creates the right atmosphere for a dialogue with North Korea', was the White House statement.
