THE DEEPENING crisis over North Korea’s nuclear programme could lead to “open conflict” between the US and China, Rex Tillerson has warned.

The US Secretary of State said relations between the two nuclear and economic superpowers has reached “a pivot point” as tensions over global affairs escalate.

Since US President Donald Trump took office, Washington and Beijing have clashed over a number of contentious issues, namely the North Korea nuclear crisis.

Trump has repeatedly called on China to rein in the communist state, accusing it of “doing nothing for us with North Korea, just talk” in a seething Twitter rant last week.

In a rare state department briefing on Tuesday, Tillerson mirrored the President’s frustration over what he called America’s “differences” with China.

He suggested that “a long period of no conflict” with China could come to an end if relations continued to go sour.

He said: “How should we define this relationship [with China] and how do we ensure that economic prosperity to the benefit of both countries and the world can continue, and that where we have differences – because we will have differences, we do have differences – that we will deal with those differences in a way that does not lead to open conflict?”

Referring to Trump’s Twitter rages at Beijing, Tillerson said the “situation in North Korea” tests the relationship between the US and China.

He added: “Can we work together to address this global threat where we have a common objective? And where we have differences – in the South China Sea, and we have some trading differences that need to be addressed – can we work through those differences in a way without it leading to open conflict and find the solutions that are necessary to serve us both?”
