Kim Jong Un asked Beijing for economic support

Asahi front-paged the disclosure by an informed source that when visiting Beijing for a summit with Chinese President Xi in late March, DPRK leader Kim Jong Un called for massive economic aid in a bid to improve his nation’s impoverished economy. The daily stressed that it is uncertain whether the Chinese will respond positively to the request because economic aid could undermine international sanctions on the defiant regime. The DPRK leader also reportedly asked the Chinese leader to assure the security of his regime.
