Beijing: North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, meeting in Pyongyang with Chinese President Xi Jinping, said on Thursday his country is waiting for a desired response in stalled nuclear talks with the US.

“North Korea would like to remain patient, but it hopes the relevant party will meet halfway with North Korea to explore resolution plans that accommodate each other’s reasonable concerns,” he said.

Xi’s trip to North Korea, the first by a Chinese president in 14 years, raises the possibility that China could help break a monthslong impasse in talks between the US and North Korea over the North’s nuclear weapons.

Describing the issue as “highly complex and sensitive,” Xi said his govt is willing to play a constructive role in the denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula.
