"China and the DPRK are close neighbours and we maintain normal communication and exchanges with each other", Geng said, using North Korea's official acronym.
"At a crucial time when the regional situation is developing rapidly, Kim said he came to China again to meet with (Xi) and inform him of the situation", the official Xinhua News Agency quoted Kim as telling Xi.
Kim told Xi the denuclearisation of the peninsula was North Korea's "constant and clear position", and that dialogue between North Korea and the United States could build mutual trust.
President Donald Trump said he will speak Tuesday with his Chinese counterpart.
Kim said "Comrade General Secretary and I have carried on this fine tradition to hold the historic meeting with fruitful outcomes, and promoted the unprecedentedly vigorous development of the DPRK-China relations", he said.
There had also been talks about denuclearising North Korea and improving relations with China as they had become strained in recent years.
While Kim would be giving up the last of his remaining American prisoners, whom North Korea has often used in the past as bargaining chips with the United States, a release could also be aimed at pressuring Trump to make concessions of his own in his bid to get Pyongyang to abandon its nuclear arsenal, something it has not signalled a willingness to do. A North Korean official on the Korean Central News Agency referred to the situation, stating "This act can not be construed otherwise than a risky attempt to ruin the hard-won atmosphere of dialogue and bring the situation back to square one".
The meeting between Xi and Kim comes as the North Korean leader prepares to hold a historic summit with U.S. President Donald Trump.
In March, Kim travelled by train to Beijing, his first known trip overseas since assuming power in 2011. Indeed, despite the short turnaround between Xi and Kim's meetings, there was a lot to catch up on.
North Korea's state media reported that Kim traveled to Dalian via a special plane and he was accompanied by his powerful sister Kim Yo-jong and Ri Su-yong, a vice party chairman on global affairs. The venue for their summit has not been announced.
Kim and Moon met in the Demilitarized Zone, in the border village of Panmunjom, and signed the "Panmunjom Declaration for Peace, Prosperity and Unification on the Korean Peninsula".
