North Korean leader Kim Jong-un arrived here on Tuesday for talks with Chinese President Xi Jinping to chalk out his next course of action after his historic summit with US President Donald Trump where it was agreed to denuclearise the Korean peninsula.
A motorcade was spotted leaving the Beijing airport early Tuesday, with Kim believed to be inside.

The visit would also serve to underline that Kim is adhering to a request made by Xi at their first meeting in Beijing.

A Kim trip to China to discuss his summit with Trump had been widely anticipated in diplomatic circles.
Kuhn reports that "North Korean leaders have in past always traveled to China in armored trains, and kept the visit secret until after it was over, apparently because they feared assassination attempts".
Cheng Xiaohe, an associate professor at Renmin University's School of International Studies in Beijing, said that unlike previous visits, Chinese state broadcaster CCTV announced Kim's visit before his departure.
What has come out of the summit, so far, seems like a version of China's "dual suspension" strategy - a plan that asks North Korea to suspend nuclear testing in return for a suspension of military exercises.
