The US and China have agreed that they cannot accept a nuclear-armed North Korea and pledged to work closely to end Pyongyang's weapons programme, a senior US national security official has said.
Tom Donilon said the US President Barack Obama and Chinese President Xi Jinping reached "quite a bit of alignment'' on the subject of curbing North Korea's ambitions during a meeting on Saturday.
"They agreed that North Korea has to denuclearise, that neither country will accept North Korea as a nuclear-armed state and that we would work together to deepen co-operation and dialogue to achieve denuclearisation," he said on Saturday, at the end of two days of meeting between Obama and Xi at an estate in the California desert.
