On the final leg of his tour in East Asia, US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson met with Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi and Chinese President Xi Jinping. Tillerson's trip ended with an agreement to work together with China on North Korea and to put aside trickier issues.

==WANG YI PRC Foreign Minister==
It is normal for China and the US to have different opinions and views. In our meeting, I specified China's firm stance on the issue of Taiwan, Diaoyu Islands, and the deployment of THAAD.

The two countries also have different opinions on how to solve North Korea's nuclear problem and the tension on the Korean Peninsula.

==WANG YI, PRC Foreign Minister==
We are for the settlement of this issue through dialogue and negotiations and the maintenance of peace and stability on the peninsula and the overall region.

The US stated that all options, including military, are on the table.

==REX TILLERSON US Secretary of State==
We've committed ourselves to doing everything we can to prevent any type of conflict from breaking out, and we view there are a number of steps that we can take that are in front of us.

Secretary Tillerson also stressed the need for a "results oriented" relationship with China in working together to prevent North Korea from further developing their nuclear program.

==REX TILLERSON, US Secretary of State ==
We renewed our determination to work together to convince the North Korean Government to choose a better path and a different future for its people.

Prior to Secretary Tillerson's visit to Asia, President Trump tweeted that North Korea has been playing the US for years and that China has done little to help. Meanwhile, Secretary Tillerson reiterated that the US will not give up on taking military actions against North Korea. It remains to be seen how China and North Korea will react to US moves.

美國國務卿提勒森上任後首度的亞洲之行,19號早上在會見過中國國家主席習近平之後,劃下句點。在北京停留期間,提勒森重申在日韓表達過的立場,也就是不排除以外交以外的手段,迫使北韓放棄核武計畫。至於美國可能軍售台灣、美日安保納入釣魚台,中方也坦承,兩國之間仍舊有相當歧見。

==中國外交部長 王毅==
中美之間存在一些......分歧和不同看法也是正常的。我在會談當中....那麼...表明了中方在台灣、釣魚島和薩德等問題上的嚴正立場。

事實上,美中之間持續各說各話、沒有交集的,還有如何化解北韓核武與半島緊張的問題。

==中國外交部長 王毅==
(中國)始終堅持通過對話談判解決問題,以維持(朝鮮)半島的和(東亞)地區的和平與穩定。

美方則是堅持,不排除使用任何手段。意味著軍事手段也在選項之中。

==美國國務卿 提勒森==
我們要致力於用各種手段防止衝突爆發,我們認為眼前有許多的選項可以執行。

提勒森同時也強調,為了防堵北韓在核武方面取得進展,和中國的合作,要看結果如何才來評估。

==美國國務卿 提勒森==
我們要重啟決心(與中方)共同合作,敦促北韓改弦更張,採取對人民未來較好的路線。

由於提勒森出發之前,美國總統川普就在推特發文,除了指控北韓多年來言行囂張,把美國當傻瓜耍得團團轉,也批評中國沒有努力約束北韓。對比提勒森一再重申,美國不放棄以武力解決北韓問題,中國和北韓如何接招,就要看接下來事態的發展。
