He returned to Beijing without meeting Kim, which was seen as a sign of their strained relations.

China, North Korea's traditional ally and biggest trading partner, has backed global sanctions against the reclusive regime over a series of nuclear and missile tests by the North, which had frayed their relations. Seoul joined the efforts to tame the provocative North but insisted that the ultimate objective of sanctions and pressure must be to bring the North back to negotiations on ending its nuclear ambitions. Discussions on the North's Olympic participation quickly evolved into rapprochement to the point where the countries' leaders exchanged special envoys.

The delegation of the Republic of Korea on March 5 met with the leader of the DPRK in Pyongyang.

Kim and U.S. President Donald Trump are expected to hold their own summit talks sometime next month or in June.

The Moon-Kim meeting will not only be a prelude to the first-ever U.S.

While North Korea and China are mending ties, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe headed to the United States on Tuesday to meet Trump to discuss both trade and Trump's plans for a summit with the North Korean leader.


During started after this high-level dialogue was the date for the inter-Korean summit on April 27.

The peninsula remains bisected in a perpetual stalemate, with the USA -backed South Korean military lined up against more than a million North Korean troops.

The two Koreas have already agreed to include the denuclearization issue on the agenda for the meting of their leaders, along with a reduction of military tensions on the Korean Peninsula and improvement in inter-Korean relations, officials from the presidential office Cheong Wa Dae said earlier.

And the South Korean government hopes the first inter-Korean summit on the South's side won't be the last. USA officials have said those talks would focus on denuclearizing the North.

At next week's summit between South Korean President Moon Jae-in and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, the two neighbors may release a joint statement stating they will seek to ease military tension and to end confrontation, according to the report.

North Korea and the rich, democratic South are technically still at war because their 1950-53 conflict ended in a truce, not a peace treaty.
