Nuclear Threat: US ‘In Direct Contact’ With North Korea, Says Tillerson
The United States Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson has said it is in “direct contact” with North Korea over Pyongyang’s repeated missile tests.
Mr Tillerson stated this is in China while meeting with President Xi Jinping and other officials.
Recall that the United Nations slammed economic sanctions against North Korea in an attempt to force the secretive state to stop its weapons programme.
Tillerson is hoping to encourage China to implement the sanctions.
Meanwhile, China this week told North Korean businesses operating in its territory to close down. It however remains keen to see negotiations with North Korea.
