The Obama administration should be talking with China, working to convince it to cut off support to North Korea, former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton told NK News last Wednesday.
Bolton, currently an American Enterprise Institute senior fellow and Fox News contributor, believes that the only peaceful solution to the North Korean security threat is to achieve Korean reunification by persuading China to withdraw support for the Kim regime. The Chinese leadership is changing its views about North Korea as younger Chinese leaders "see that North Korea is a pretty ugly piece of baggage," he states.
