US Hints At Naval Blockade, North Korea Threatens Nuclear War

US Hints At Naval Blockade, North Korea Threatens Nuclear War

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is criticizing China over its oil supplies to North Korea and Russian Federation for using North Korean laborers.

So far, USA -led sanctions on North Korea and diplomatic isolation haven't compelled Kim Jong Un's government to stop its nuclear and missile tests, or to seek negotiations.

Differences between President Donald Trump and Tillerson over Washington's approach to North Korea first emerged in October, when Trump tweeted that his top diplomat's efforts to negotiate with China on the subject were "a waste of time".

This led to questions on whether the USA administration was exploring a new policy on North Korea after previously stating it wouldn't negotiate with North Korean officials unless they were willing to discuss curbing their nuclear weapons and missiles program.

"North Korea must earn its way back to the table", Tillerson said, adding, "We will in the meantime keep our channels of communication open".

However, the Allahabad High Court in October this year acquitted the couple for want of evidence. The needle of suspicion had initially pointed towards 45-year-old Hemraj who was missing.

It was not immediately clear whether Tillerson, whose influence has appeared to wane within the administration, had Trump's full support to seek such a diplomatic opening. On Tuesday, Tillerson said "China is taking steps to prepare" for a mass influx of refugees should the North Korean regime collapse. "They have too much invested in it".

Guterres described 2017 as a "difficult year" in dealings with North Korea.

The United Nations political affairs chief told senior North Korean officials during a visit to Pyongyang this week that there was an "urgent need to prevent miscalculations and open channels to reduce the risks of conflict", the world body said. "Sorry, but only one thing will work!"

The White House has denied any change, with spokesperson Sarah Huckabee Sanders saying in a statement Tuesday, "The president's views on North Korea have not changed". "Our overall goal is denuclearization".
