U.S. can “compel” China to comply with sanctions on N.Korea: Tillerson

Tillerson also denounced China’s “empty promises” to put pressure on the DPRK

Rex Tillerson on Wednesday denounced China’s “empty promises” on North Korea and said he would consider action to “compel” China to comply with the United Nations sanctions in case of violations.

Tillerson, U.S. President-elect Donald Trump's nominee for Secretary of State, pointed to North Korea as an adversary which posed “grave threats to the world because of their refusal to conform to international norms.”
