The United States and China have agreed on a UN resolution on North Korea and will not accept Pyongyang as a "nuclear weapons state," the White House said Wednesday.
National Security Advisor Susan Rice and Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi agreed "on the importance of a strong and united international response to North Korea's provocations, including through a UN Security Council Resolution that goes beyond previous resolutions," National Security Council spokesman Ned Price said.
The statement said President Barack Obama joined the meeting and said he looked forward to welcoming Chinese President Xi Jinping to a March 31-April 1 nuclear security summit in Washington.
