SEOUL - North Korean leader Kim Jong-un's uncle and the man seen as the power behind the young and untested dictator went to Beijing on Monday to discuss joint commercial projects, the North's official news agency said.

The visit by Jang Song-thaek comes after the North's new leader Kim Jong-un told China, the sole major ally of the diplomatically isolated state, that his priority is to develop the impoverished country's decaying economy.

The North's KCNA news agency said the meeting is to discuss the joint economic projects in Rason on the North's east coast, and in Hwanggumphyong, an area on the border between the two countries that is yet to be developed.
