China's state run CCTV reported that North Korean leader Kim Jong-un is in China. The brief report announced at 1000 hours local time did not provide further details on Kim's purpose.

However, the news was expected as several reports from numerous media outlets have already hinted of possibilities for the visit. Earlier, sources within the aviation industry say a special place, carrying the logo of North Korea's state airline Air Koryo, departed Pyongyang a little before 0930 hours Korea time.

Japan's Nikkei newspaper also reported this morning that Kim had been preparing for a trip to China as early as today to brief his Chinese counterpart on the Singapore summit with US President Donald Trump. If Kim visits Beijing, it would be his third trip to China this year alone following the ones in March and May when he meet Xi.

The newspaper said that Kim would use the trip to share the details on the summit and discuss bilateral cooperation with China going forward.
