Beijing, June 19: Chinese President Xi Jinping has on Wednesday said Beijing backs North Korea’s “correct direction” in resolving issues related to the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula politically.

In an op-ed published in N Korea’s state-run Rodogn Sinmun newspaper, Xi said the two nations will “strengthen our strategic communication and exchanges”, saying Beijing will firmly back North Korean leader Kim Jong-un’s achievements in “socialist construction” which aimed at the economic development and enhancing people’s lives.

According to Al-Jazeera news reports, Xi’s official visit to Pyongyang is expected to last for two days. The visit comes as a support for Kim, who suffered since the Hanoi summit collapsed between Kim and his United States counterpart Donald Trump in February.

Hanoi summit held between Kim and Trump failed to reach a denuclearization deal due to both leaders large differences as Kim stressed for sanctions relief, whereas Trump focused over Kim’s last year commitment of full and complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.

At the same time, frictions between the US and China has also escalated over trade and other disputes.

On Tuesday, Beijing joined Russia in postponing a Washington request for a United Nations security council (UNSC) sanction committee to demand an immediate cease to deliveries of refined petroleum to Pyongyang over accusations N Korea violated the UN sanctions on such oil shipments.

The Chinese president stated China and North Korea would develop and expand ties and cooperation between the two sides in various areas such as youth, tourism, sports, culture, and education.

Referring to the official name of N Korea, the column read: “We will actively contribute to peace, stability, development, and prosperity in the region by strengthening communication and coordination with the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea.”

It added China will engage with stakeholders “by jointly expediting progress on dialogue and negotiations on the issues of the Korean peninsula”.
