Ex-US Treasury Secretary Calls N. Korea's Nuke Threat Most Urgent

Former U.S. Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson has underlined the need for Washington and Beijing to work together to tackle regional issues, beginning with what he said is the toughest and most urgent issue in Asia—North Korea’s growing nuclear threat.
Paulson made the remark in an interview with the South China Morning Post in Hong Kong on Monday.
He projected that “there is going to be greater security competition in Asia,” assessing that “China has a more assertive, proactive foreign policy as its interests are growing around the world.”
The former secretary said that voices could continuously emerge in the U.S. saying that “China is an enabler of North Korea.” However, he was quick to add that there is also an opportunity for the U.S. and China to work together to get tangible things done considering how great the North's nuclear threat is.

Paulson was in Hong Kong to promote the Chinese version of his book, "Dealing with China."
