That border with China is one of the main ways North Korea interacts with the outside world. Reality Check looks at what we know about the people and goods that cross it. Mr Kim arrived in Beijing this week on a similar train to the one used by his father, Kim Jong-il. A Russian emissary who travelled on that train in 2001 immortalised it in a memoir , describing live lobsters being airlifted to it every day, silver chopsticks, and a parade of beautiful female companions.

The K27/K28 train route goes via Chinese cities such as Tianjin and the border city of Dandong, before crossing the Sino-Korean Bridge of Friendship into North Korea. Simon Cockerell, the general manager of Koryo Tours, a travel company specialising in trips to North Korea, says the number of passengers every year “is easily in the tens of thousands.” Each Beijing-Pyongyang train can carry up to 96 passengers.
