N. Korea celebrates late founder's birthday without mention of nukes, provocation

김정은, 中쑹타오 접견..."중대문제, 정세 심도있는 의견교환"+북한 태양절, 핵 언급 없었다
The North Korean regime marks the birthday of its late founder Kim Il-sung on Sunday... without provocations or any mention of its nuclear weapons capability ahead of the summit talks with South Korea and the U.S.
This is in contrast in 2016 when the reclusive state test-fired what was presumed to be an intermediate-range ballistic missile in Kim Il-sung's honor.
North Korean leader Kim Jong-un also met with the head of a group of Chinese performing artists visiting Pyongyang on Saturday... indicating that ties between China and North Korea have improved.
North Korea's Central News Agency said Kim greeted Chinese diplomat Song Tao and his delegation and expressed greetings to President Xi Jinping.
This is in contrast to when Song went to Pyongyang in November as President Xi's special envoy... and did not meet with Kim Jong-un.
