(Screenshot: BBC) North Korean leader Kim Jong Un (L) shakes hands with President Moon Jae-in of South Korea after becoming the first North Korean leader to step on South Korean soil on Friday, April 27, 2018.

China's top diplomat, Wang Yi, met with Kim in Pyongyang last week, the first trip there by a Chinese foreign minister since 2007.

Like the March summit in Beijing, the Dalian summit was kept secret until Kim's plane left for Pyongyang on Tuesday afternoon.

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and Chinese President Xi Jinping held their second summit in about 40 days, with Kim voicing his commitment to denuclearization, state media said Tuesday, ahead of an anticipated summit between Kim and U.S. President Donald Trump.

According to China's official Xinhua agency, Mr Kim and Mr Xi discussed bilateral issues, and the Chinese leader told Mr Kim of his support of talks between North Korea and the United States.

President Donald Trump then tweeted, without reference to Kim, that he would call Xi and speak about North Korea, as well as trade.

Kim's hesitance to leave North Korea has dwindled in recent months, having made the historic trip into South Korea last month.

As inter-Korean talks continue and a summit between Kim and President Donald Trump looms, Xi may be looking to insert China into the dialogue which has appeared to put United States interests first. The Trump administration has demanded that North Korea immediately commit to denuclearization. A status quo, it's worth noting, that means that the decades-long USA military presence in Korea will remain for decades more to come.

Ramped-up security in the northeastern Chinese port city of Dalian since Monday has sparked speculation about a visit by a high-ranking North Korean official, with Kyodo News confirming airport operations remain limited and traffic restricted.

Xi held a welcome banquet for the North Korean leader and took a casual stroll with him along a beach, Xinhua said.

After the plebiscite, thousands of opposition supporters rallied against alleged mass violations at polling stations. He said his ministers will be chosen "as a result of discussions" with his allies and other political groups.

Trump said Pompeo, who also visited the North several weeks ago, had meetings scheduled with Kim's representatives.

Kim said he had come to China to inform Xi of the situation, as events on the Korean Peninsula are unfolding rapidly.

He said that what the world must remember is that there are as many as 30,000 Christian believers in concentration labor camps in North Korea, among many others, while another 70,000 Christians have to hide their faith and live in secrecy.

Chinese internet users posting on social media described heavy security in the city and extensive flight delays on Monday.

US officials have been pressing Kim to free the three remaining American detainees as a gesture of sincerity before the summit, the first-ever meeting of sitting USA and North Korean leaders.

Amal Clooney wears trousers on the fanciest red carpet of the year
Last year, she wore a very strappy dark costume that seemed to have walked straight out of an early 19th century Gothic novel. The 2008 theme was "Superheroes: Fashion and Fantasy", which is a touch sophomoric, but hey, it was simpler times.

Hong Kong's South China Morning Post newspaper cited two unidentified sources as saying that Xi had flown to Dalian on the coast east of Beijing to meet with the official as well as to preside over the official launch of sea trials for China's first entirely self-built aircraft carrier.
