Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said on Face the Nation Sunday that China agrees with the Trump administration that the North Korea situation requires action.

“President Xi clearly understands, and I think agrees, that the situation has intensified and has reached a certain level of threat that action has to be taken,” Tillerson said.

“There’s a shared view and no disagreement as to how dangerous the situation has become,” he said.

Tillerson added that Bejing had expressed the belief that talking with the Kim regime in North Korea will not be productive.

He also expressed hope for cooperative action between the United States and China and said that North Korea’s aggressive posture is beginning to threaten China’s interests.

North Korea has intensified their missile program in recent months, testing ballistic missiles that can reach U.S. allies in the region.
