North Korean leader Kim Jong-un's top aide, Kim Yong-chol, has wrapped up his four-day trip to the U.S., during which he met with U.S. President Donald Trump.

Trump on Friday revived the summit after cancelling it a week earlier.

Ri Yong Gil, a deputy, and No Kwang Chol, first vice minister of the ministry of the people's armed forces, replaced the officials, respectively, according to the report.

Yonhap named the military leaders as defense chief Pak Yong Sik, Korean People's Army chief of staff Ri Myong Su, and Kim Jong Gak, head of the KPA's General Political Bureau.

They added that the GPB could be influential enough to resist leadership policy decisions and try to profit from future South Korean economic aid.

The announcement of the timing for the first meeting between the two leaders came just three days after Trump hosted a senior North Korean delegation at the White House bearing a letter from Kim.
