Tillerson: ‘We Do Not Seeking a Regime Change’ But a ‘Full Denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula’

‘What we are seeking is the same thing China has said they seek, a full denuclearization of the Korean peninsula’

RUSH EXCERPT:
TILLERSON: "And we and other countries will be prepared to help you on a pathway of economic development and become a stable, secure part of a stable, prosperous northeast Asia. Now, that is how weak the risk North Korea to China as well, I think it is well understood, concerns about destabilizing the regime due to possible impacts of a failed regime. We have been clear, we do not seek regime change, we are not seeking a collapse of the regime. We are not seeking to find some excuse for an accelerated reunification of the peninsula. What we are seeking is the same thing China has said they seek, a full denuclearization of the Korean peninsula."
