With tensions rising over young North Korean leader Kim Jong Un’s bellicose rhetoric and nuclear threats, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice told NBC Chief Foreign Affairs Correspondent Andrea Mitchell Friday that longtime North Korean ally China is knows that “Kim Jong Un has gone too far.”
“What’s interesting about China’s stance now is that you can tell by the nature of their statements, by the nature of their actions, that unlike in the past, they also are very much of the view that Kim Jong Un has gone too far and that this now is a situation that has the potential to directly threaten their interests in the region, both economic and security,” Rice told Mitchell in an interview at the Newsweek/Daily Beast Women in the World Summit at New York City’s Lincoln Center.
