Secretary of State Rex Tillerson's public acknowledgment that the US has direct channels to North Korea has underscored his role as an administration moderate when it comes to reining in the regime over its nuclear weapons.
Rex Tillerson confirmed that the U.S. is "probing" to see if the North Korean leader is willing to engage in talks despite tensions that remain unsafe. the Korean peninsula crisis, probably, reached its peak, so the worldwide community is doing its best to untie this knot. "We're not in a dark situation", he added.
In addition, the President of the United States Donald trump, quite sharply speaks of the DPRK in their statements was called the "crazy old American".
Tillerson also met Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi and State Councillor Yang Jiechi to discuss the nuclear threat from North Korea and US-China trade.

Xi said that he and Trump had made efforts to grow their diplomatic relations, and that they have maintained "a very good working relationship and personal friendship".
While Tillerson and Chinese leaders didn't mention North Korea in public remarks, he did raise the issue behind closed doors, according to a senior State Department official who asked not to be identified because the talks were private.
Trump has criticized the Chinese government in recent months for not doing enough to pressure Pyongyang into suspending its nuclear and missile programmes.
"Obviously it would help if North Korea would stop firing off missiles".
Trump is set to visit China in November as part of an Asia trip to encourage the region to close ranks against North Korea's weapons programmes.
Trump has said his comments have nothing to do with race but are about respecting the country and the flag. National Football League spokesman Joe Lockhart called the president's statements "inaccurate".
