The top U.S. military officer expressed frustration Wednesday with what he called China's unwillingness to rein in North Korea, calling again on Beijing to use its unique leverage to push the North to stop provocations.
Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Adm. Mike Mullen, at a news conference Wednesday in Seoul with his South Korean counterpart, Gen. Han Min-koo, says China appears "unwilling" to pressure the North.
But the Chinese "appear unwilling to use it," he said. "Now is the time for Beijing to step up to that responsibility and help guide the North, and the entire region, toward a better future."
