North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has arrived in China for a four-day visit at the invitation of Chinese President Xi Jinping, as preparations increase for a second summit with US President Donald Trump.

The Korean Central News Agency said on Tuesday that Kim departed on Monday afternoon on a private train accompanied by his wife Ri Sol Ju and top North Korean officials.

A motorcade late on Tuesday morning was seen leaving a train station in the Chinese capital, Beijing, with police blocking a street with metal gates hours after Kim’s train crossed the border into northern China, according to media reports.

During his stay in China, North Korea‘s key diplomatic ally and main source of trade and aid, Kim is expected to hold his fourth summit with Xi. 

The visit comes comes a week after Kim warned that North Korea may seek alternative course if the United States maintains sanctions and pressure on his country.
