As historic as last week’s summit between the leaders of the US and North Korea was, this week’s meeting between Chinese President Xi Jinping and Kim Jong Un was far more important to the long-term stabilisation of the Korean Peninsula.

The Korea Herald reports that Chinese President Xi Jinping has voiced his strong support for North Korea’s commitment to denuclearization and promised to keep playing a constructive role in the process, North Korean state media reported Wednesday.

In his summit with Xi in Beijing on Tuesday, North Korean leader Kim Jong-un expressed gratitude for China’s support for his historic meeting with US president Donald Trump last week and vowed to further consolidate bilateral ties with China, according to the Korean Central News Agency.

Kim said that North Korea will closely cooperate with China “in the process of opening a new future on the Korean Peninsula and in the region” and do his best to protect a “genuine peace” going forward.
