Last week marked the first time since the Korean War that a North Korean president had stepped foot in South Korea, as Mr Kim met his South Korean counterpart Moon Jae In for the inter-Korean summit. Xu also said the Xincheng district, which is next to the Yalu River that defines much of the North Korea-China border, has seen prices rise particularly quickly.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Kim discussed the Americans last month when Pompeo visited North Korea.

The only explanation for their arrest came from North Korea's state news agency, KCNA, which described their offenses as "hostile criminal acts with an aim to subvert the country".

"We believe that Mr. Trump can take them back on the day of the U.S".

"North Korea summit, or he can send an envoy to take them back to the USA before the summit", said Choi Sung-ryong, an activist pursuing release of North Korea's political prisoners.

China - North Korea's sole diplomatic ally and economic benefactor - has supported a series of United Nations sanctions against Pyongyang over its nuclear and missile programmes.

Three Korean-Americans detained by North Korea may be on the verge of freedom amid an ongoing thaw with Pyongyang, Donald Trump hinted on Wednesday.

"Kim Jong-unsaid achieving the denuclearisation of the peninsula is the firm position of the North Korean side", the ministry said.

Wang also told Kim that China supports efforts to bring a formal end to the Korean War, which was halted with an armistice, not a peace treaty, and North Korea's "shift of strategic focus to building its economy".

Local officials say the reason is several projects have finished around the same time, but before the latest round of sanctions, around three-quarters of China's trade with North Korea traveled through Dandong.
