North Korean leader Kim Jong-un visited China and held a summit with Chinese President Xi Jinping earlier this month, marking his fourth visit in less than a year.

Kim’s trip to China this month is thought to be an effort to hold consultations with Xi ahead of a possible second meeting with US President Donald Trump. On Friday, in Washington, the White House said Trump and Kim will hold the summit at the end of next month.

Separately, officials at North Korea’s Samjiyon Orchestra also arrived in Beijing on Saturday.

A source said Hyon Song-wol, leader of the Samjiyon Orchestra, accompanied Kim during the January visit and she discussed a performance in Beijing with Chinese officials.

There is a possibility that the North Korean orchestra may perform in Beijing around the time of the Chinese Lunar New Year holiday season, according to the source. (Yonhap)
