Kim Jong-un's visit

I hope Kim Jong-un knows why his request to visit China was turned down. China quietly deferred a request by North korea for its young leader to visit last month because Chinese leadership was preoccupied with its once-in-a-decade leadership change and a host of other distractions. The move also suggests that China may be seeking an assurance from North Korea that it drops nuclear ambitions after it ignored warnings from Beijing not to go ahead with a rocket launch in April.
