At the summit, North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un and South Korea's President Moon Jae-in signed the Panmunjom Declaration for Peace, Prosperity and Unification on the Korean Peninsula.

The top leaders of China and North Korea have had a second meeting, close on the heels of their first summit from March 25-28.

Pompeo reportedly left Joint Base Andrews in Maryland on Monday, with two reporters who were prohibited from reporting on their trip until after Trump's announcement on Tuesday.

As inter-Korean talks continue and a summit between Kim and President Donald Trump looms, Xi may be looking to insert China into the dialogue which has appeared to put USA interests first.

China has been making all sorts of engagements with North Korea and its neighbours to ensure that it doesn't lose out to the US-backed peace initiative in the Korean Peninsula in which Washington's ally South Korean has also played a big role.

Kim briefed Xi on the "latest developments" and Party building in his country, the Xinhua report said.

"I hope to build mutual trust with the USA through dialogue", Kim was quoted as saying.

Speaking about his summit with Trump, Kim expressed hope that the DPRK (Democratic People's Republic of Korea, the official name of North Korea) and the U.S. would build mutual trust through dialogue.

Xi-Kim meeting took place amid concern in Beijing that the North Korean leader is getting too close to United States sidelining China pointing to its declining importance in the Korean Peninsula peace process.

According to North Korean state media, Kim said he is "very pleased" with how the relationship between North Korea and China is progressing, Reuters reported Tuesday.

President Donald Trump revealed on Tuesday that U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was on his way to Pyongyang to prepare for Trump's summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and expressed hope that three Americans held there would soon be released.

It's thought that the meetings with China are being held in preparation for US President Donald Trump's summit with Kim which is due to happen later this year.

The US president suggested that the demilitarised zone between North and South Korea would be an excellent venue for the planned summit, but that Singapore was also a possible site.

Posts about unusual traffic jams and security in Dalian popped up on Chinese social media.

The Chinese foreign ministry would not confirm or deny that a North Korean official had visited the country.

The discussions likely centered around the diplomatic push to keep North Korea free of nuclear weapons.

Dalian was also the site of a 2010 meeting between Mr. Kim's father, Kim Jong-il, and Mr. Li, who is now China's premier.

Throughout the day on Tuesday there was speculation on Chinese websites that a North Korean leader was in China, though China's foreign ministry said earlier it had no information and Chinese state media did not carry any reports.
