North Korean leader Kim Jong-il continued a rare trip to Russia on Monday, traveling in his private armored train through the country's resource-rich far east ahead of a summit with President Dmitry Medvedev expected to focus on energy cooperation and nuclear disarmament.
North Korean leader Kim Jong-il reportedly headed for eastern China by train Sunday on a trip to his main ally, and a Chinese leader told South Korea's president that Beijing invited Mr. Kim to learn from Chinese reforms.
North Korea's leader-in-waiting Kim Jong-un began a visit to China on Friday, according to media reports here, a trip seen as signifying Beijing's approval of the North's succession process.
