John Kerry: China Willing to Put More Pressure on North Korea

Over its nuclear weapons program


U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said on Friday that China is willing to exert more pressure to get North Korea to give up its controversial nuclear program and take additional steps to achieve this goal.

Speaking in Seoul before leaving for Beijing, Kerry said China should be doing more to help nudge Pyongyang—which has rattled the region with nuclear tests and angry rhetoric—into line.
