News of the study came as the White House yesterday announced that President Trump will hold a second summit with North Korean leader KimJong Un to try to broker a deal to coax the North to give up its nuclear programme.
Foreign ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said at a regular press briefing vice chairman of the Korean Workers' Party Kim Yong Chol will be boarding a flight bound for the United States from the Chinese capital, Yonhap reported.
Critics of USA efforts say the first summit only boosted Kim's worldwide stature without much to show for it, and some believe Trump may see a second meeting as a way of distracting from his domestic troubles.
Kim Jong Un said during his January 7-10 trip to China, his fourth visit to China in less than a year, that Pyongyang will make efforts for the second summit between DPRK and USA leaders to achieve results that will be welcomed by the global community, while thanking China for its efforts to push for progress in the Korean Peninsula.

The State Department said that Stephen Biegun, the USA special representative on North Korea, would carry on discussions at a conference in Sweden starting on Saturday that will involve Pyongyang officials.
The announcement breathes new life into negotiations over North Korea's nuclear program, following hostile exchanges between Kim and Trump during the USA president's first year in office and unprecedented negotiations in his second year.
On Saturday, Trump said a "lot of progress" has been made on the issue.
"Kim Jong-un is looking very forward to it and so am I", Trump said.
President Donald Trump will meet for the second time with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un in February, the White House said on Friday, after a top general from Pyongyang paid a rare visit to Washington.
While Trump has credited Kim's decision to halt weapons tests and dismantle a few testing facilities with preventing a war in Asia, those moves haven't stopped North Korea from continuing a nuclear programme that puts the United States and key allies at risk.
