Tillerson Urges China to Help Rein in N. Korea


U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson on Friday used his first meeting with Chinese counterpart Wang Yi to urge Beijing to help rein in North Korea after its series of nuclear and ballistic missile tests.

"Tillerson also highlighted the increasing threat posed by North Korea’s nuclear and missile programs and urged China to use all available tools to moderate North Korea’s destabilising behaviour," Mark Toner, acting U.S. State Department spokesman, said after the two men met in Bonn on the sidelines of a G20 meeting.
