Chinese President Xi Jinping could watch North Korea's notorious mass games when he visits Pyongyang on Thursday and Friday, U.S. website NK News said Tuesday.
North Korean performers last November created a huge mosaic picture of Xi's face when a Chinese art troupe was watching a performance, so he could end up admiring his own face.
Xi is to meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and visit the China-North Korean Friendship Tower dedicated to the Chinese army's participation in the Korean War.
His visit seems intended to show off the friendship between the two countries amid China's trade war with the U.S., as well as distracting attention from pro-democracy demonstrations in Hong Kong.
Pyongyang could secure support from Beijing in its denuclearization talks with Washington and get food and fertilizer aid.
