North Korean leader Kim Jong-un returned home on Wednesday from Beijing by train, concluding a surprise visit that sparked expectation of a second summit with the US on denuclearising the Korean Peninsula.
The Chinese Foreign Ministry did not confirm the information on Kim's journey but said it would issue an official press release.
Kim is expected to reach the North Korean capital on Thursday, reports Efe news.
Yonhap reported that on Wednesday, Kim visited the facilities of a Chinese traditional medicine firm for close to 30 minutes, after which he had lunch with Xi.
The first meeting between Kim and Xi in Beijing took place ahead of North Korea's participation in the Winter Olympics held in South Korea, which kicked off a process of rapprochement between the two Koreas.
