A top Chinese foreign policy official met Thursday with North Korea's Kim Jong Il in Pyongyang amid the continuing military crisis on the Korean peninsula.

China's official Xinhua News Agency did not immediately say what State Councilor Dai Bingguo discussed with Kim. But China is under heavy international pressure to defuse the tension, which spiked with North Korea's recent artillery attack on a South Korean island near the Koreas' disputed sea border. The barrage killed four South Koreans.

The Kim-Dai meeting was held in a warm and friendly atmosphere, North Korea's official Korean Central News Agency said, and they discussed ways to further strengthen the two countries' relations. The agency gave no details about whether they discussed North Korea's recent artillery attack.
