Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said that if North Korea develops an intercontinental nuclear missile that can reach the United States that it would be “very serious,” but did not go as far as calling it a red line during an interview on ABC’s “This Week.”

ABC’s Stephanopoulos asked Tillerson whether North Korea developing a nuclear weapon that can reach the United States would be a red line for the Trump administration.

“If we judge they have perfected that type of delivery system, that becomes very serious,” Tillerson told Stephanopoulos.

Tillerson also told George Stephanopoulos that the United States has no plans of pursuing regime change when it comes to North Korea, and denied reports that the United States is considering assassinating North Korea leader Kim Jong-un.
