Tillerson Raises Concern Over U.S.-North Korea Relations

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has called for a “new approach” in U.S. policy toward North Korea due to its escalating nuclear program under the dictatorial regime of Kim Jong-un.

In a joint news conference in Tokyo following talks with Japanese Foreign Minister Fumio Kishida, Tillerson explained that two decades of diplomatic talks had not achieved their intended aim of denuclearizing Pyongyang.


He did not elaborate on what new approach the Trump administration has planned.

“So we have 20 years of failed approach,” Tillerson said. “That includes a period where the United States has provided $1.35 billion in assistance as an encouragement to take a different pathway,” reported Reuters

The United Sates plans to increase its missile defense in the region. The Chinese government has expressed its disapproval of such an act.

It is possible that under Tillerson’s leadership, “secondary sanctions” may be imposed by the United States on Chinese banks and businesses who do business with North Korea.

The Chinese government has repeatedly urged North Korea to stop its nuclear and missile tests and for South Korea, and the United States, to cease joint military drills, and choose peaceable talks instead.

Last week North Korea launched four ballistic missiles in defiance of U.N. Security Council resolutions and sanctions.

They are developing nuclear-tipped missiles capable of reaching the United States.

Under the Trump leadership, all options are on the table, including those military. The United States has begun installing the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense missile system in South Korea in an effort to protect both its own borders and those of its allies in the region.
