Here's where the next Trump-Kim summit may take place

Neither KCNA nor Xinhua provided further information on Kim's itinerary, though South Korea's Hankyoreh newspaper said on Monday that he will meet with China's Xi for a fourth summit.

The latest trip comes after USA and North Korean officials are believed to have met in Vietnam to discuss the location of a second summit between Kim and Trump following their first meeting in Singapore in June past year.

Experts say that Kim's trip to China could be followed by his visit of Seoul or meeting with US President Trump as early as February.

A former North Korean diplomat who staged a high-profile defection to the South, yesterday urged an old colleague who has gone missing in Italy to defect to Seoul, following a report that he was seeking asylum in the US.

Heavy security was spotted in the train station in the Chinese border city of Dandong just after 10 p.m.

Despite Trump's repeated assurances that another summit will allow he and Kim to make a grand deal to settle the nuclear standoff and change a relationship marked by decades of animosity and mistrust, outside analysts are highly skeptical that the North will easily abandon a nuclear arsenal constructed in the face of deep poverty and likely seen by Kim as his only guarantee of regime survival.

If he is going to meet Xi, Kim could be hoping to coordinate his positions with China before the Trump summit.

Trump, who held a historic summit with Kim in Singapore in June, said earlier in the week he had received a "great letter" from the North Korean leader but declined to reveal its contents.

The latest letter from Kim came after the North Korean leader warned in a New Year's speech that Pyongyang may adjust its approach to nuclear talks if the United States persists with sanctions.

"It will be announced probably in the not too distant future", Trump said Sunday about the location of the second summit.

About 30,000 North Koreans have fled repression and poverty and settled in the capitalist South, mostly by secretly crossing over the increasingly porous border with China. China says it imported no North Korean coal from January to March 2018.

China is a key diplomatic ally of North Korea and one of the country's main sources of trade and aid.

Kim's regime, however, has been bogged down by worldwide sanctions caused by past nuclear and missile tests.

"The defectors may not be as wealthy as South Koreans", Thae added.
