BEIJING — North Korean leader Kim Jong Il reportedly has arrived in Beijing and is expected to meet with the leader of his country's key ally.
Yonhap News agency in South Korea said Kim arrived in Beijing at 9 a.m. Wednesday by train and went to the Diaoyutai State Guesthouse. The report says he will meet with Chinese President Hu Jintao.
Yonhap did not cite sources in the report. The Chinese state guesthouse would not comment and the North Korean Embassy said it had no information.
