TILLER­SON: US WOULD LIKE DI­A­LOGUE WITH N. KOREA

Metro USA (New York) - - News -

2The United States does not seek to top­ple the gov­ern­ment of North Korea and would like to have a di­a­logue with Py­ongyang at some point, Sec­re­tary of State Rex Tiller­son said on Tues­day. “We do not seek a regime change, we do not seek a col­lapse of the regime, we do not seek an ac­cel­er­ated re­uni­fi­ca­tion of the penin­sula, we do not seek an ex­cuse to send our mil­i­tary north of the 38th Par­al­lel,” Tiller­son told re­porters at the State De­part­ment. “We are not your en­emy … but you are pre­sent­ing an un­ac­cept­able threat to us, and we have to re­spond. And we hope that at some point they will be­gin to un­der­stand that and we would like to sit and have a di­a­logue with them.”
