Beijing is isolated and secretive Pyongyang’s chief ally and economic benefactor. President Xi Jinping has met Kim several times in the last couple of years. As for the earlier reports, Kim was “conspicuously absent” from birthday celebrations on April 15 of his grandfather and state founder Kim Il Sung.
