Chinese President Xi Jinping landed in Pyongyang on Thursday, where he is expected to discuss aid, the economy, and nuclear talks with leader Kim Jong Un. Xi is the first Chinese president to visit North Korea in 14 years, and will stay for two days. The pair will likely talk about Kim's failed February summit with President Trump, which crumbled after the two sides could not reach an agreement on North Korea ending its nuclear program in exchange for relief from sanctions. China is dealing with its own trade issue with the United States, and the visit is supposed to strengthen ties between China and North Korea.
