Si said Tillerson that the two countries have far more common interests than disputes, emphasizing the need for greater communication and coordination on issues related to regional "hot spots", according to a statement published by the Ministry of foreign Affairs of China.
On Sunday, North Korean leader Kim Jong-UN witnessed the successful test of a high-pressure engine, according to the state Korean Central news Agency, noting that the event is "historical", which could lead to a "new birth" of the rocket industry of the indigenous peoples of the country. The US President Donald trump said Sunday that he has "had meetings in North Korea", without mentioning the North Korean leader by name, said, "He acts very very bad. I will tell you that it is very bad."
Beijing was the last stop Tillerson in his first official trip to Asia, which also included a trip to Japan and South Korea. The trip followed the succession of launches of North Korean missiles, which have heightened tensions on the Korean Peninsula and came amid fears that Pyongyang is preparing for another nuclear test.
Despite the early warning that all options - including military action - remain on the table for Pyongyang, Tillerson abstaining from harsh language that he used in Tokyo and Seoul after arriving in Beijing.
Men "agreed that there are opportunities for expanding cooperation between China and the United States, but acknowledged that there will in the future the differences between the two countries," the statement said. Tillerson also said that trump "anticipates that soon they will be able to meet face to face for discussions that will determine the course of future U.S.-China relations," the statement said.
China global is the only major ally of Pyongyang, which accounts for 70% of the total trade of North Korea, which provides political and economic benefits for the increasingly isolated regime of Kim. Trump has repeatedly urged Beijing to use its leverage over its unpredictable neighbor.
