Secretary Tillerson Calls on China to Use ‘Powerful Tool’ of Oil to Sway N. Korea

‘We hope China will not reject that or discard that’


TILLERSON: “I am hopeful that China as a great country, a world power, will decide on their own and will take it upon themselves to use that very powerful tool of oil supply to persuade North Korea to reconsider its current path towards weapons development, reconsider its approach to dialogue and negotiations in the future. That is a very powerful tool. And it has been used in the past. And we hope China will not reject that or discard that.”
