Xi and Kim both pointed out that since their initial summit there had been "positive progress" not only in China-North Korea relations, but in the general situation on the Korean Peninsula.
Pompeo said he was hoping to finalise the agenda for the summit.

Noting that this was Kim's second trip to China in just over 40 days, Xi praised the state of "strategic communication" between China and North Korea, formally known as the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK). They will sign a deal on resuming currency swaps and China will grant Japan investment quotas in its bond and equity markets, Li said in an essay published in Japan's Asahi newspaper. He visited Beijing in March and South Korea last month.
"That won't lead to the outcome that I know Kim Jong Un wants and I know President Trump is demanding", Pompeo said.
Trump and Xi agreed on the importance of continued implementation of sanctions on North Korea until it permanently dismantles its nuclear and missile programs, the White House said. Reports from the Chinese-North Korean border suggest that Chinese authorities have already lost much of their enthusiasm for enforcing existing sanctions.
