KBS reports that Ryu Myong-son, deputy director of worldwide relations of the Central Committee of the ruling Workers' Party of Korea (WPK), arrived in Beijing on an Air Koryo plane on Monday morning, along with Kim Nung-o, head of the party's North Pyongan Central Committee, and Kim Su-gil, chief secretary of the Pyongyang WPK City Committee.

Trump would have claimed a summit in Washington as a major diplomatic win.
