China's Xi in North Korea to discuss trade - African swine fever sweeping across Asia - Number of millionaires rising
Xi Jinping is set to become the first Chinese president to travel to North Korea in 14 years. The visit comes as denuclearization talks between North Korea and the United States appear to be at a standstill.
The current African swine fever crisis is an example of how dependent Germany is on China. If Chinese pig farmers cull their hogs the consequences are global, says DW's Frank Sieren.
China has stopped accepting shipments of meat from Canada after food inspections revealed residue of a restricted feed additive. Canadian authorities are investigating the case, which coincides with a diplomatic dispute.
More progress has been made to end the Korean conflict under US President Donald Trump than in 60 years. If Trump's unconventional approach secures peace, he deserves recognition for it, writes DW's Alexander Freund.
