Issued on: Modified:
France 24's Alexander Aucott explores the two day meeting taking place between Chinese and North Korean leaders in Pyongyang, starting this Thursday. It is anticipated that talks should focus on Pyongyang's nuclear ambitions as well as trade links between the two countries and the US. Chinese president Xi Jinping is reportedly offering 100,000 tons of food aid to one of their biggest trading partners to "shore up relations," in response to food shortages caused by the worst drought North Korea has seen in decades.
