Trump has tested the Supreme Leader of North Korea over Twitter before, openly mocking him over his weight and referring to Kim as "Rocket Man".
"PresidentTrump and President Xi agreed on the importance of continued implementation of sanctions on North Korea until it permanently dismantles its nuclear and missile programs", the statement said.

"I hope to build mutual trust with the United States through dialogue", Mr Kim was quoted as saying.

Foley pointed out that North Korea has made numerous promises of going nuclear-free in past decades as well, with hopes of peace never actually materializing.
North Korean state media KCTV said Kim flew to Dalian on Monday on his private jet, where he was welcomed by high-profile Chinese officials including Foreign Minister Wang Yi.
