U.S. Needs a New Combined Diplomacy with China on North Korea

Kevin Rudd on Fox News


On April 15, 2017, ASPI President Kevin Rudd went on the Fox News show "America's News HQ" to discuss how to "reel" in North Korea's nuclear program. 

Acknowledging that past diplomacy has failed, Rudd called for "a new combined diplomacy" by the United States and China that would apply greater pressure on North Korea. One pressure point, Rudd argued, would be China's oil exports to North Korea. 

Rudd advised that it is important not to get distracted by North Korea's rhetoric, but instead to pay attention to the technical progress of its nuclear and missile capabilities. (8 min., 11 sec.)
