Kim Jong-Il and Chinese President Hu Jinato were scheduled to meet in Beijing today. Speculation says that this visit may lead to the restart of the sic-party nuclear talks. “It is predicted that the summit talks between North Korea and China will be held on Thursday,” an unnamed source was quoted as saying.
North Korean leader Kim Jong-Il is expected to meet with Chinese President Hu Jintao in Beijing on Thursday in a move that some hope will trigger the return of six-party denuclearization talks, South Korea’s Yonhap News Agency reported.
Kim is believed to have arrived in China early Monday by train via the border city of Dandong, Yonhap reported earlier this week, citing unnamed sources in Seoul and Beijing.
