North Korean leader Kim Jong Un shakes hands with China's President Xi Jinping, in Dalian, China, in this undated photo released on May 9 by North Korea's Korean Central News Agency (KCNA).

"Kim Jong-un, chairman of the Workers' Party of Korea and Chairman of the State Affairs Commission of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) visits China from June 19 to 20", Xinhua said.

White House deputy chief of staff for operations Joe Hagin (C) arrives to board Air Force One to return home with U.S. President Donald Trump from Ninoy Aquino International Airport in Manila, Philippines November 14, 2017.

Kim praised China's "important role in protecting the Korean Peninsula's peace and stability", state-run CCTV said. The two leaders will also likely talk about North Korea sanctions and denuclearizing the Korean Peninsula. After his summit with Kim last week, Trump acknowledged that his trade disputes could discourage Xi's cooperation during disarmament talks with Kim.

Trump and Kim pledged in a joint summit statement to "work toward the complete denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula".

Xi urged the USA and North Korea to implement the agreements reached at the June 12 summit in Singapore, while Kim thanked Xi for his role in the diplomatic efforts, according to Chinese state media.

It is now urgent for Xi and Kim to discuss how North Korea will work towards meeting United States demands, said Beijing-based global relations commentator Hua Po. The government has said only that the UN Security Council - where China and the US both wield vetoes - should revisit sanctions after Kim's commitment to "complete denuclearization" with Trump last week.

Geng was not forthcoming when asked whether China will join Russian Federation in calling for the lifting of United Nations sanctions against North Korea in the light of the Singapore summit.

Despite reports of differences, China remains a close ally of North Korea.

Following the Singapore summit, China suggested the UN Security Council could consider easing the economic restrictions.

"It reflects that China is indispensible to the entire Korean nuclear issue". We will miss him in the office and even more on the road.

While announcing the halt of South Korean and U.S. military exercises, Trump has been maintaining that the sanctions will remain.

Analysts saw this as a clear sign of Beijing's influence. In recent months, the Pentagon has branded China a "strategic competitor" and the administration has demanded that Xi roll back his "Made-in-China 2025" program to dominate advanced industries such as semiconductors to aerospace development. For its part, China has been warning of strong retaliation.

Donald Gross, a lawyer with Washington Global Law Group, worked on USA negotiations with North Korea during the Clinton administration as senior adviser to the Under Secretary of State for Arms Control and International Security Affairs from 1997 to 2000.

"Our government hopes China will play a constructive role in resolving this problem", ministry spokesman Noh Kyu-deok told a regular briefing.
