North Korean leader Kim Jong Un visited China from Sunday to Wednesday on an unofficial visit, according to China's state news agency Xinhua.

The visit was Kim's first known journey abroad since he assumed power in 2011.

Analysts believe the visit was to serve as preparation for upcoming summits with South Korea and the United States.

China said on Wednesday it won a pledge from North Korean leader Kim Jong Un to denuclearize the Korean peninsula during a meeting with President Xi Jinping, who pledged in return that China would uphold its friendship with its isolated neighbor.
