Report: U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said Thursday that Washington’s basic policy on North Korea is not seeking a regime change, not invading it and guaranteeing its regime.
 
Tillerson revealed the view when he held talks for about 40 minutes with President Moon Jae-in’s special envoy to the U.S. Hong Seok-hyun in Washington.
 
An official of Hong’s delegation said that Tillerson was emphasizing that there is no reason for the U.S. to demonstrate hostility if the North shows intentions to scrap its nuclear ambitions.
 
Tillerson also called on the North to trust the U.S. for once. He stressed that the U.S. only conveys messages publicly and will not hold dialogue with the North out of public view.
 
The U.S. secretary said that he would like to make clear all the options available are to do with diplomacy, security or economy and that there are many steps to take before a preemptive strike option.
 
Earlier this month, Tillerson said in a lecture before State Department employees with regard to the North that the U.S. will not seek a regime change or collapse, an accelerated reunification of the two Koreas or come north of the 38th Parallel.
