N.Korea tensions at 'dangerous level', Tillerson warns

World Bulletin / News Desk

Korean Peninsula tensions were at a "rather dangerous level", Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said on Saturday as he pledged the US would work with China to address the North Korean problem.

"I think we share a common view and a sense that tensions in the peninsula are quite high right now and that things have reached a rather dangerous level," Tillerson said after talks with Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi in Beijing.

"We will work together to see if we cannot bring the government in Pyongyang to a place where they want to make a different course, make a course correction, and move away from the development of nuclear weapons."

The Chinese Foreign Minister has said that the situation was at a "crossroads", but must not be allowed to develop into a conflict, he said after hosting US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.
