18 June 2019 Current Affairs: Chinese President Xi Jinping is to visit North Korea for two days on 20 June. He the first Chinese leader to visit the reclusive country in 14 years. The North Korean leader Kim Jong Un invited the Chinese President for t a visit.

Chinese President's visit:
The visit by Mr. Xi to Pyongyang had long been expected within diplomatic circles. The last Chinese leader's visit North Korea was in 2005 by Hu Jintao. The year 2019 marks the 70th year since China and North Korea established diplomatic ties.
Mr. Kim has visited China four times since March 2018.
The countries will exchange views on the Korean peninsula situation, and push for new progress in the political resolution of the peninsula issue. It can be understood that Xi could now use North Korea as leverage in talks with Trump.

China-North Korea relationship:
China is the lone major ally of North Korea. North Korea and China have been working together to improve relations since 2018, after they deteriorated as Beijing backed a series of UN sanctions against its Cold War-era ally over its nuclear activities.
The visit comes amid renewed tensions between the United States and North Korea over efforts to persuade Pyongyang to give up its nuclear weapons. Pyongyang has resumed some weapons tests and warned of truly undesired consequences if the United States is not more flexible.
