North Korea: US not seeking regime change, says Rex Tillerson

US State Secretary Rex Tillerson has said Washington is not trying to topple Kim Jong-un’s regime in North Korea, but Pyongyang must halt its nuclear missile programme, BBC reported.

“We do not seek a regime change. We do not seek the collapse of the regime. We do not seek an accelerated reunification of the peninsula,” he said during a press conference in Washington, DC, on Tuesday.

“We do not seek an excuse to send our military north of the 38th parallel. And we’re trying to convey that to the North Koreans. We are not your enemy. We’re not your threat, but you are presenting an unacceptable threat to us, and we have to respond.”

Reviewing his six months in office, Tillerson said the US would be willing to talk to the North Korea if it accepts to disarm.

“We don’t think having a dialogue where the North Koreans come to the table assuming they’re going to maintain their nuclear weapons is productive,” he said.
