QUESTION: Secretary Tillerson, what kind of pressure do you hope will be put on North Korea this week on the world stage?

SECRETARY TILLERSON: Well, we’ll have plenty of opportunity to talk about that with many, many of international leaders. And I think the UN Security Council resolutions really speak for themselves, a unanimous view of what’s needed for North Korea to correct the situation. Thank you.

QUESTION: Thank you.

QUESTION: Any response to the New York Times report that North Korea’s rocket fuel initially came from Russia and China?

SECRETARY TILLERSON: I don’t have any comment on that.
