Xi Jinping has arrived in North Korea for the first visit of a Chinese president for 14 years.
He will hold conversations with his counterpart Kim Jong Un on denuclearisation and financial problems.
Xi meets with US President Donald Trump at the G20 summit in Japan next week after talks about trade war between the two states broke down.
If Xi can make a breakthrough on nuclear problems with Kim, it can only help China's trade issues with the United States
