Kim issues veiled warning to Trump

Agency News

Beijing, Jan 8 : Even as North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and US president Donald Trump are planning a follow-up meeting to their historic summit in Singapore last June, Kim has issued a veiled warning to the US President Trump with his surprise visit to China on Tuesday.

The message is writ large on the wall that North Korea has other options for economic and diplomatic normalisation if their rapprochement falters.Kim and Trump are planning a follow-up but there are misgivings on both sides about each other’s sincerity and commitment to improving their bilateral relations, according to the media reports.

Against this backdrop, Kim, joined by his wife and an entourage of officials, arrived in Beijing on Tuesday for his fourth summit meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping in less than a year.

He will remain here through Thursday, making this the longest of his trips.
