Ben Cardin: Diplomacy Can Work with North Korea if China Is More Engaged

‘That requires the United States international community to work with China’

RUSH EXCERPT:

CARDIN: "I believe diplomacy can work if China will be much more engaged in enforcing sanctions against North Korea. That requires the United States international community to work with China. If China turns the screws on North Korea, North Korea is going to have little option but to come to the bargaining table. There’s a way of using diplomacy, but if you give up on diplomacy, then your only option is military, the consequences could be disastrous.”
