China's Xi visits South Korea in snub to North

China's president arrived in Seoul today for a state visit seen as a snub to Beijing's traditional ally North Korea, whose nuclear weapons ambitions will dominate talks with South Korean leader Park Geun-hye.

It was Xi Jinping's first trip as head of state to the perennially volatile Korean peninsula, and will mark his second summit with Park, who visited China last year.

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un is still waiting for an invitation to Beijing -- a calculated rebuff that speaks to the strained relationship between Pyongyang and its historic and most important ally.
