Report: North Korea's Kim visits China

North Korean leader Kim Jong Il arrived in China Thursday after a visit to Russia, the state-run Xinhua news agency in China reported.

The brief report from Inner Mongolia said Kim was visiting northeastern China but gave no further details about what he was doing or who he was meeting.

The trips comes after Kim visited Russia earlier this week, where he said North Korea is ready to return to nuclear talks without preconditions, according to Russian President Dmitry Medvedev's spokeswoman.

Medvedev and Kim talked for about two hours, Medvedev's spokeswoman Natalia Timakova told Russia's Interfax news agency.

      What comedian was it years ago, talking about visiting Hong Kong. He was saying it was a nice place, but why did they put the airport in the middle of Chinatown.

      That's kind of funny except that the airport is really on Lantau Island next to Disneyland and Main Street USA

    "The brief report from Inner Mongolia said Kim was visiting northeastern China but gave no further details about what he was doing or who he was meeting."

    The train broke down, and he was out taking a whizz.
