'China has unique leverage with North Korea and needs to use it'

Robert Wood is US Ambassador to the Conference on Disarmament. He joined us from Geneva to give us his point of view on the North Korean nuclear crisis, saying that diplomatic pressure is key. "China has very unique leverage with North Korea, and it needs to use that leverage", he told FRANCE 24's Marc Perelman. "Sanctions may not work, but we do think that there’s still an opportunity for diplomacy", he added.
