U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson says China has asked North Korea to conduct no further nuclear tests.
Tillerson says China also told the U.S. that it had informed North Korea "that if they did conduct further nuclear tests, China would be taking sanctions actions on their own."
The top U.S. diplomat made the remarks in an interview Thursday on Fox News Channel.
Tillerson adds that the U.S. is not seeking regime change in North Korea. He says, "What we are seeking is the same thing China has said they seek — a full denuclearization of the Korean peninsula."
