PILING pressure on North Korea to give up its nuclear weapons will not work, America’s former ambassador to the UN has warned.

John Bolton called for US cooperation with China and said the neighbouring nation’s intervention would be key in ending North Korea’s nuclear programme.

He said uniting the country with South Korea was the “only way it’s going to happen”.

Speaking to Fox News, he said: “I don’t think a strategy that relies on pressuring North Korea to give up its nuclear weapons is going to work.

“Look, we’ve tried for 25 years across Republican and Democratic administrations to persuade the North Koreans to give up their quest for nuclear weapons.

“We’ve tried persuasion, it’s failed, we’ve tried coercion, it’s failed.”

He said Kim Jong-un’s nuclear programme served as his regimes “insurance of its long-term viability”.

Mr Bolton said: “The fact is, this regime is never going to voluntarily give up nuclear weapons, they’re the ace in the hole.

“This is the regime’s insurance of its long-term viability and a simple pressure – they’ve resisted.
