After days of speculation, it has been confirmed that North Korea’s leader Kim Jong-un has visited China, BBC reports.
Earlier this week, local media reported a high profile figure had arrived on a special train.
However, the identity of the high profile figure was not revealed, but rumours circulated that Kim Jong-un has visited China.
The visit, confirmed by China and North Korea, was Kim’s first foreign trip since taking office in 2011.
The head of the secretive regime has been in the capital Beijing for talks with President Xi Jinping, sources claim.
The trip comes ahead of planned summits between North Korea, South Korea, and the US, with the three having agreed to talk to allay tensions over Kim’s nuclear ambitions.
