North Korea announces that it arrested an American tourist last month for alleged inappropriate behaviour.
The governments of China and North Korea both confirm that North Korea's supreme leader Kim Jong-un met with China's paramount leader Xi Jinping in Beijing during the past four days. China states that North Korea is "committed to denuclearization" and willing to hold a summit with the United States.
The South Korean military reports North Korea has fired several short-range projectiles into the sea from its eastern Kangwon province. The U.S. military says three short-range missile launches either exploded on launch or failed in flight.
The United Nations Security Council condemns North Korea's most recent ballistic missile launches as a grave violation of the international ban, and urges all countries "to redouble their efforts" to fully implement the March sanctions.
