North Korean leader Kim Jong Un visited China and met President Xi Jinping, state media of both countries said Tuesday, their second encounter in two months in a flurry of diplomatic engagement that has eased tensions on the Korean peninsula.China has been keen to show it has an indispensable role in seeking a lasting solution to tension over North Korea's pursuit of nuclear weapons, concerned that its interests may be ignored, especially as North Korea and the United States establish contacts.Kim told Xi that the denuclearization of the peninsula was North Korea's "constant and clear position," and that dialogue between North Korea and the United States could build mutual trust.Chinese state media showed pictures of Kim smiling in an outdoors meeting with Xi, and the two leaders strolling along a waterfront.Xi hosted a banquet and told Kim of his backing of North Korea's "strategic shift towards economic development," Xinhua added.
