There are "no good military options" when it comes to pushing back at North Korea except to engage in stronger cooperation with China, former U.S. Ambassador to South Korea Christopher Hill said in an interview airing Sunday.

"You know, we've done a lot on sanctions," Hill told John Catsimatidis on talk radio show on New York's AM 970, reports The Hill. "You know, we've done a lot on sanctions. It's the most sanctioned country in the world — that hasn't worked. We tried to have negotiations with them — that hasn't worked. But I think what could work is a much better understanding between the U.S. and China."

North Korea's nuclear threat has been growing, Hill continued, but the country has "been a threat for some 20 years."

"We are seeing them modernize their missile arsenal," said Hill, and it's likely that the country will have a deliverable nuclear weapon in the near future.

"Then the question is, what are we all going to do about that," said Hill, continuing that he would not want to be president in 2020 and have to tell Americans all options concerning North Korea have been exhausted.

China has been critical of North Korea for its nuclear program, but it also has slammed the United States' plan for missile defense systems in South Korea.
