This Aussgage gives hope.
The president of China Xi Jinping sees a "rare historical opportunity" for an agreement on the Korean peninsula.
He expressed his hope to North Korea's governor Kim Jong-un during his visit to Beijing that Kim and US President Donald Trump would meet in a possible second summit, the Xinhua News Agency reported on Thursday .
Kim had arrived at the start of this week for a multi-day visit to China. According to experts, the trip served to coordinate with the Chinese leadership ahead of the upcoming summit scheduled with US President Trump.
North Korea is largely isolated internationally. China is the closest ally of Pyongyang and a major player in the negotiations on nuclear disarmament in North Korea. China is ready to play a "positive and constructive role" in the denuclearization of the peninsula, Xi said.
The negotiations on denuclearization of North Korea have recently come to a halt. According to US President Trump, Pyongyang and Washington are currently discussing a second meeting following the historic Singapore summit last June. Recently, Kim threatened to change course in the New Year's speech if the United States adopted punitive measures against his country.
