Chinese President Xi Jinping and his U.S. counterpart, Donald Trump, on Friday discussed the situation on the Korean Peninsula and bilateral relations via phone.

The phone conversation came after Trump has agreed to meet Kim Jong Un, top leader of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK), by May at Kim's invitation "to achieve permanent denuclearization," according to Chung Eui-yong, South Korea's top national security adviser, who had briefed Trump on the outcome of a South Korean delegation's meeting with Kim earlier this week.
