Beijing, June 20 : Chinese President Xi Jinping on Thursday embarked on his first-ever state visit to North Korea, where he will meet Pyongyang leader Kim Jong-un and discuss various bilateral issues.

Xi is paying the visit at the invitation of Kim, Xinhua news agency.

The two-day visit by Xi will be a first by a Chinese President in the last 14 years and the first since he came to power in 2013.
