BREAKING NEWS: U.S. Presses China To Cut Oil Deliveries To North Korea

BREAKING NEWS:

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson reestablished US supplications to China on Thursday to slice oil shipments to North Korea to convey it to the arranging table over its nuclear and missle programs.

The US discretionary moves come as North Korea praises the trial of an intercontinental ballistic missle that Pyongyang says gives it the capacity to hit Washington with an nuclear weapon.

Nikki Haley, the US diplomat to the United Nations, cautioned Wednesday that the missle test has conveyed the world nearer to war and said President Donald Trump has asked China's President Xi Jinping to remove Pyongyang's oil supplies.

If Beijing does not act, she warned, “we can take the oil situation in our own hands.”

Earlier Thursday, Trump said on Twitter that a Chinese envoy to Pyongyang had apparently failed to sway North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un.

But at a State Department photo op with visiting German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel, Tillerson said: “the Chinese are doing a lot.”

He added, however, “We do think that they can do more with the oil.”

He said the United States was urging Beijing to “restrain” oil shipments to Pyongyang, “not cut it off completely.”

“The most effective tool the last time the North Koreans came to the table,” he said, “was cutting the oil off.”
