STOCKHOLM, March 28(Greenpost) — Chinese President Xi Jinping met North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un over the past three days.

Kim took the train to Beijing on March 25.  Xi and his wife Peng Liyuan met Kim and his wife at the Great Hall of the People.

The meeting was very sincere and the two sides talk a lot about traditional friendship.

Kim’s visit came before he will hold talk with South Korean President and the United States President Donald Trump.

Why have Kim and his delegation visited China?

Kim Jungun is not stupid at all. He studied in Switzerland and he has played his cards very well. So far he is playing very well. Why? The worst case will be the same as Saddam or Kaddafi. And he has been isolated and determined to do what he wanted to do.

Now he was given a chance to talk during the Olympics. The sport again played an important role. Or the Olympic committee often plays this kind of game to invite both sides of the opposing countries.

Kim took the opportunity. He was never given such a sincere opportunity before. Why did he visit Xi Jinping now? Because he wants to get trusted and he wants to face Trump as equal.  Before he was not treated as equal. He was squeezed.

Now when he visited Xi Jinping, it means he likes to see China to be on his side. China is also willing to be on his side. But Xi immediately informed Trump about the meeting.

This shows that China serves as a go between. If he along meets Trump och South Korean leaders, it will be very abrupt. The trust is still not enough.

With the comfirmation of Xi Jinping, both Trump and Kim feel  they are countable.

Xi likes to see both North Korea and US can sit down and talk and solve their disputes.

So the meeting with Xi is very important and it marks a turning point of the Korean Peninsula crisis.
