North Korean leader Kim Jong-un sends envoy to China

Via the BBC:

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has sent a special envoy to Beijing, state media has announced, amid cooling relations between the two neighbours.

Choe Ryong-hae, a top military official, flew to the Chinese capital on Wednesday, KCNA said.

The brief dispatch gave no details of the visit, which comes amid an apparent toughening of Beijing's stance in the wake of Pyongyang's third nuclear test.

Chinese media said Mr Choe met Wang Jiarui, a top foreign affairs official.

The visit - the duration of which remains unknown - follows weeks of high tension on the Korean peninsula.
