SEOUL, Jan. 9 (Yonhap) -- North Korean leader Kim Jong-un visited Beijing this week apparently to discuss his possible second summit with U.S. President Donald Trump after receiving Trump's reply to his personal letter, a Japanese media outlet reported Wednesday.

Citing an informed source, the Asahi Shimbun said that the reply to the letter Kim sent to Trump in December appears to be related to the plan for the second summit between Trump and Kim, and that the reply has convinced him that the summit will take place.

Kim headed home on Wednesday after talks with Chinese President Xi Jinping, which analysts said appear aimed at coordinating their positions and securing diplomatic support from China, the North's longtime ally, ahead of the summit with Trump.
