Trump Tells Tillerson He's 'Wasting His Time' Negotiating With Kim”

Speaking to journalists during a trip to China, Tillerson said that the two countries had been in communication over the North's missile programme, adding that the USA was "probing". "We have a couple, three channels open to Pyongyang".

US President Donald Trump said negotiating with North Korea over its nuclear programme would be a waste of time on Sunday after it emerged that Washington had channels of contact with Pyongyang.

There was no indication that Kim's government was prepared to talk or had even responded. During his visit, he explained that the U.S. government is "probing" the DPRK, Fox News reported.

The disclosure came as Tillerson expressed hope for reducing tensions with North Korea, which is fast advancing toward its goal of developing a nuclear-tipped missile capable of hitting the USA mainland. "That'd calm things down a lot", he said.

The secretary of state described that situation as "a bit overheated right now", insisting "everyone would like for it to calm down". But, saying that the overall situation now is rather heated, Tillerson stressed that North Korea should halt its missile launches first to cool things down.

David E. Sanger is a New York Times writer. President Trump is to visit China in November as part of his tour of five Asian nations.

On Thursday, Beijing ordered North Korean-owned businesses and ventures with Chinese partners to close by early January, days after it said it would cut off gas and limit shipments of refined petroleum products, effective Jan. 1.

China has banned imports of North Korean coal, iron and lead ore, and seafood since early September. North Korea doesn't seem in any mood to tone down its rhetoric yet.

North Korea this year has been aggressively improving its missile and nuclear weapons programs, showcasing is abilities to the world through its continued tests.

This was Tillerson's second visit to China as America's top diplomat.

In addition to North Korea, the USA and China have other security concerns to address.

The Chinese President Xi Jinping noted "a good working relationship and personal friendship" with President Trump.
