President Obama has warned Chinese President Hu Jintao that the United States would be compelled to redeploy its military forces in Asia if China does not take a firmer stance against North Korea, a senior administration official confirmed to Fox News.
The president warned that, unless China steps in, the United States would need to increase its military presence to defend against a possible strike from the rogue North Korean regime. The New York Times first reported that Obama made the warning to Hu last month during a phone conversation and again on Tuesday during a White House dinner. This reportedly led China to apply the screws to its ally, opening up new defense talks between North and South Korea.
The Chinese president, after being the guest of honor at the state dinner Wednesday, is traveling Friday to Chicago. Hu’s visit has been met with both calls for increased economic cooperation and criticism of China’s human rights record and diplomatic dealings.
