North Korea Watch: He Needs to Get Out More
"If Kim did visit Beijing, it would most likely be to discuss plans for the next round of the stalled six-nation talks aimed at ending the North's nuclear weapons programs, those close to the matter said."
Also, in the aftermath of North Korea's experiment with currency reevaluation and its subsequent skydive, it would appear that Korea is more in need of aid than usual.
"There seem to be no other pressing issues, although visiting China could help emphasize North Korea's wishes to make better friends with the rest of the world for the sake of its economy," said another ministry official requesting anonymity.
As stated before, Kim's big promises about the future of the nation appear to have backed him into a corner that he will have to negotiate his way out of. It doesn't mean they won't try reckless, dangerous stunts now and then, but they are almost certain to make more overtures in the near future.
The question will be how other members of the six-part talks respond.
