Patience for North Korea 'Has Ended — Tillerson

There are reports in the US and Chinese media that US President Donald Trump is scheduled to host Chinese President Xi Jinping for a two-day summit on April 6-7 at his mansion Mar-a-Lago in Florida which Trump is using as his winter retreat.

En route to Beijing, Mr Tillerson visited US allies Japan and South Korea where he declared Washington would drop the "failed" approach of "strategic patience" with Pyongyang - adding that US military action against the North was possible. But he has since backed down and affirmed longstanding U.S. policy that the democratic island is part of a united China - a major victory for the Communist nation, which considers the issue unassailable.

Rex Tillerson reassured President Xi over the weekend that both himself and President Trump are "expecting a new era for constructive development" in bilateral relations between the two powers.

Mr Tillerson, who has just completed a three-country visit to east Asia, on Friday signalled a tougher US strategy towards North Korea. Trump believes that China needs access to the US market more than the US needs China.

In the early years of his presidency, then U.S. President Bush implemented an isolationist and coercive policy against the DPRK's nuclear ambition, yet the DPRK did not back away.

Saturday marks Rex Tillerson's first visit to China as secretary of state.

In order to healthily and steadily boost China-US ties, both sides could enhance the high-level and multi-level exchanges, expand the cooperation at the bilateral, regional and global levels, and properly handle the most sensitive issues, he added.

Fox unilateral network team was allowed into this meeting - pool asked for access and was blocked.

Poolers, journalists who gather news for the entire press corps, are generally admitted to meetings with U.S. diplomats when they travel abroad.

Xi said he has communicated with Trump several times through telephone conversations and messages.

Mr Trump has so far been an unpredictable partner for China, attacking Beijing on issues ranging from trade to the South China Sea and in December by talking to Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen. Tillerson said China should focus on the North Korean threat that makes the deployment necessary.

By Saturday in Beijing, he softened his tone and spoke of working with countries to bring North Korea to a place "we can begin a dialogue".

Trump initially suggested using Taiwan as a bargaining chip in the relationship with China.

Secretary Tillerson also conveyed that President Trump is anticipating the two will soon be able to meet face-to-face for discussions that will chart the course for future U.S. -China relations. China has been advocating diplomacy to avoid a conflict on the divided peninsula.

Xi also extended welcome to President Trump for a visit to China.

We hope this new US initiative wlll bear fruit not only in the Sea of Japan, Yellow Sea, and East China Sea shared by China, Korea, and Japan, but also further south in the South China Sea.
