N. Korea in focus as China's Xi visits South

Chinese President Xi Jinping speaks at the closing press conference of the fourth Conference on Interaction and Confidence Building Measures in Asia (CICA) summit at the Expo Center in Shanghai on May 21, 2014China’s president arrives in Seoul Thursday for a state visit focused on nuclear developments in North Korea, which has spent the past week playing hawk and dove with threats, missile tests and peace offers. It will be Xi Jinping’s first trip as head of state to the perennially volatile Korean peninsula, and his second summit with South Korean President Park Geun-Hye who visited China last year. North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un is still waiting for an invite to Beijing — a perceived snub that speaks to the strained relationship between Pyongyang and its historic and most important ally. In what some saw as a display of pique at Xi’s visit, North Korea conducted a series of rocket and missile launches into the Sea of Japan (East Sea) over the past week, triggering protests from Seoul and Tokyo.
