BEIJING — Chinese state media says North Korean leader Kim Jong Il reaffirmed the importance of nuclear disarmament talks during his visit to China this week.

The visit could potentially kick-start the process of North Korea dismantling its nuclear programs, although Chinese broadcaster CCTV did not say whether Kim had made a firm commitment to restarting talks or whether he had attached any conditions to such a move.

Footage run by the channel was the first official Chinese confirmation of the visit, which began Monday, and showed the reclusive leader looking thin but otherwise vigorous in meetings with Chinese President Hu Jintao and other officials.
