Second Trump-Kim summit 'imminent': South Korea

The next summit between Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un might be just around the corner, at least, that's according to South Korea's president on Thursday (January 10).

(SOUNDBITE) (Korean) SOUTH KOREA'S PRESIDENT, MOON JAE-IN, SAYING: "Kim Jong Un's visit to China has signaled that the second summit between North Korea and the U.S. is imminent." This week, the North Korean leader made his latest visit to Beijing.

And last time, he met with China's leader before AND after his summit with Trump.

This time around, Chinese state media says Kim unloaded his concerns and worries to President Xi Jinping.

When they met, Kim told Xi about the difficulties in improving his ties with Washington, but also repeated his resolve to meet with Donald Trump again.

According to one expert's analysis, Kim Jong Un might be beginning to lose hope with the U.S. because the Trump White House has asked North Korea to make changes, without, in turn, removing sanctions.

And with that lack of trust between the two, China may have to act as a bridge.

It's a role that Xi Jinping is seemingly willing to take.

During his talks with Kim, he was quoted by Chinese state media as saying that he hopes that North Korea and the U.S. could meet each other halfway, and accepted an invitation to visit the North in the future.

However, South Korean President Moon Jae-in - a U.S. ally - says that responsibility might lie squarely with Pyongyang.

(SOUNDBITE) (Korean) SOUTH KOREA'S PRESIDENT, MOON JAE-IN, SAYING: "North Korea needs to take bolder and more substantive steps towards denuclearisation in order to lift the sanctions against them." He warns North Korea will have to give a little more to get what it wants from Trump.

That could mean steps like getting rid of its ballistic missiles or dismantling weapons production lines before the U.S. will back off its crippling sanctions.
