U.S. to press China, others on North Korea at next week's G20 summit: Mnuchin


WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States will discuss efforts to choke off funding for North Korea's nuclear and missile programs with China and other countries at next week's Group of 20 summit in Germany, U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said on Thursday.

"We will be meeting with China and other countries at the G20 next week to further our efforts to cut off North Korea's illicit activities," Mnuchin told reporters at the White House. "North Korea's provocative, destabilizing and inhumane behavior will not be tolerated."
