North Korean leader Kim Jong Un paid another visit to Beijing and met with Chinese President Xi Jinping, the official Xinhua News Agency reported.

Kim arrived at Beijing Tuesday for a two-day visit, his third to China in three months, one week after his historic summit with U.S. President Donald Trump in Singapore.

Kim’s meeting with Xi had been highly expected as many believed that he would come to Beijing to brief Xi on the June 12 meeting with Trump. In fact, speculation had swirled that Kim would head straight to China after concluding the summit with Trump.
