China to US: Be 'cool-headed' on North Korea

China urged the United States to take a "cool-headed" approach to escalating tensions with North Korea, calling for a diplomatic solution to North Korea's nuclear and ballistic missile programs.

US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson arrived in the Chinese capital Saturday after issuing the administration's bluntest warning yet to North Korea, saying that no option was off the table -- including military action.

For two hours, Tillerson met with his Chinese counterpart Wang Yi, who said the US should "come back to the right track of a negotiated settlement."

Tillerson said that North Korean tensions had reached a "dangerous level" and said China had agreed to work together to make Pyongyang "change course," -- though he didn't give further details.

Beijing was Tillerson's final stop on his first official trip to Asia after visiting Japan and South Korea.
