North Korea rocket-engine test shows "meaningful" progress: South Korea

20 Марта 2017, 11:42 | Kevin Scott

While Tillerson has said a key component of his new effort involves pressing China - North Korea's main ally and economic lifeline - to better enforce United Nations sanctions, Wang said the matter is primarily between the US and Pyongyang. "I will tell you he is acting very, very badly", the U.S. president said.

Trump made the comments to reporters while departing his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida, where he spent the weekend. Trump said administration officials had meetings over the weekend about North Korea, among other issues.

The impoverished, isolated North insists that it needs nuclear and missile weapons for self-defence against "hostile forces", including the U.S. and its ally South Korea.

During his three-nation Asia trip, Tillerson not only denounced North Korean tests but also said that the United States is open to any pre-emptive strike against Pyongyang. He also said the threat posed by the regime was increasing.

"The most important principle we have identified is that no matter what happens, we have to stay committed to diplomatic means as a way to seek a peaceful settlement", Wang said on Saturday.

A top Republican lawmaker supported Tillerson's remarks."The closer that the North Korean regime gets to being able to deliver a nuclear weapon, we're going to have to be in a position to take some type of preemptive strike". Previous efforts, including talks and sanctions, have failed.

A day later, Trump used tweeter his favorite social media platform to slam North Korea.

Although neither side brought up the subject publicly, Tillerson was expected to raise the prospect of financial penalties on Chinese companies and banks that do business with North Korea. "China has done little to help", said the US President.

Senator Bob Corker, Chairman of the powerful Senate Foreign Relations Committee, too has supported Tillerson on North Korea.
