US must stop North Korea threats, says China, as Kim Jong-un aims for military 'equilibrium'
The United States must stop threatening North Korea’s leader if a peaceful solution to the nuclear crisis is to be found, China’s ambassador to Washington has said, as Kim Jong-un reiterated his country’s aim to reach military “equilibrium” with the US. Cui Tiankai told reporters in Washington: “They [the US] should refrain from issuing more threats. They should do more to find effective ways to resume dialogue and negotiation ... Honestly, I think the United States should be doing … much more than now, so that there’s real effective international cooperation on this issue.”
