So, this is kind of a HUGE deal.
North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un was in China. He said he’d be willing to denuclearize his country.
What does he want in return? Apparently, just to keep a strong relationship with the Chinese.
BEIJING/SEOUL (Reuters) – North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has pledged to denuclearize and meet U.S. officials, China said on Wednesday after an historic meeting with President Xi Jinping, who promised China would uphold its friendship with its isolated neighbor.
After two days of speculation, China and North Korea both confirmed that Kim had visited Beijing and met Xi during what China’s Foreign Ministry called an unofficial visit to China from Sunday to Wednesday.
The China visit was Kim’s first known trip outside North Korea since he assumed power in 2011 and is believed by analysts to serve as preparation for upcoming summits with South Korea and the United States.

In return, Xi reportedly pledged to uphold China’s close relationship with North Korea during Kim’s visit to China which lasted from Sunday to Wednesday, Reuters reported.
“It is our consistent stand to be committed to denuclearization on the peninsula, in accordance with the will of late President Kim Il Sung and late General Secretary Kim Jong Il,” Kim said, according to Xinhua.
“The issue of denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula can be resolved, if South Korea and the United States respond to our efforts with goodwill, create an atmosphere of peace and stability while taking progressive and synchronous measures for the realization of peace,” Kim continued.
Make no mistake about it.
This is happening because of President Donald Trump’s tough talk.
The media will never credit Trump, but he will be able to sleep soundly IF North Korea follows through.
