The crisis over North Korea’s weapons programs must be resolved through talks, not war, Chinese President Xi Jinping said yesterday (14), while UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres warned of the danger of “sleepwalking” into conflict.
 
Xi made his comments to visiting South Korean President Moon Jae-in after US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson offered on Tuesday to begin direct talks with North Korea without pre-conditions.
 
But the White House said on Wednesday that no negotiations could be held until North Korea improved its behaviour.
 
Russian President Vladimir Putin said Tillerson’s offer of direct contacts with North Korea was “a very good signal” while warning that any US strike on the country would have catastrophic consequences.
 
Putin and US President Donald Trump discussed North Korea during a phone call, the White House and Kremlin said in separate statements. The two leaders talked about “working together to resolve the very dangerous situation,” the White House said on Thursday.
 
Tillerson is to attend a UN Security Council ministerial meeting on North Korea in New York today (15) at which he plans to urge countries to maintain a US-led campaign to pressure Pyongyang to abandon its weapons programs through sanctions.
 
North Korea tested its most advanced intercontinental ballistic missile on 29 November, which it said could put all of the United States within range, in defiance of international pressure and UN sanctions.
 
The United States has said all options were on the table in dealing with North Korea, including military action.
