    Xi in NK

    Xi Jinping visits N Korea to boost China's ties with Kim




    China's President Xi Jinping has met North Korean leader Kim Jong-un during the first Chinese state visit to Pyongyang in 14 years.


    The leaders were expected to discuss economic issues and the stalled talks over North Korea's nuclear programme.
    It was their fifth meeting in 15 months, but the first to have taken place in North Korea.
    Both leaders are currently in separate disputes with the US - China over trade and North Korea over nuclear weapons.


    Thursday's meeting was the first between the two leaders since a summit held by Mr Kim and US President Donald Trump ended in February without any agreement on denuclearisation. It also comes just a week before Mr Xi is set to meet the US president at the G20 summit in Japan.


    Thousands of people lined the streets to welcome the Chinese president to the country on Thursday morning, with video footage shared by Chinese state media showing crowds waving flowers and banners as his motorcade passed through Pyongyang.

    Predictable given Trump's completely failed attempt at coming to an agreement with Kim.

    China and Russia are Kim's only go to alternative to agreement with UN, US and allies.

    N. Korea is desperate for economic support to offset sanctions imposed on them since 2006 and big bucks China is more than happy to help.
    Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.

    Looks like Xi had a good lunch. All three of them look a little jowly.

    Who has the DPRK/SK paper flower monopolies?

    Do tailors have a special jacket secret for those whose job entails a lot of raised arm waving?

    I'm surprised you don't see any of those red flashing light sticks, mounted on Thai car bonnets and boots.

    Patent pending, complete with the essential hole positioning card to suit all major brands

    Yes I know it's on the motorbike.
