Britain says North Korea must fix crisis it started

The Latest Trump praises Xi for new UN sanctions

United States President Donald Trump and French President Emmanuel Macron have discussed North Korean issues and agreed to work to denuclearize North Korea.

Discussing the escalating war of words between the US and North Korea over the latter's rogue nuclear program, Ellison raised eyebrows by saying the North Korea's despotic leader was acting better than the USA president.

The Americans have been pressing China to pressure North Korea into abandoning its nuclear programme amid fears that it is close to developing a missile which could hit the United States mainland.

Macron had joined a chorus of worldwide voices urging restraint in the crisis, which has alarmed the global community as Trump has engaged in days of verbal sparring with Pyongyang.

The United Nations Security Council, with encouragement from the USA, voted unanimously at the beginning of August to impose new sanctions against North Korea in retaliation for the regime's recent intercontinental ballistic missile tests.

He also assured "France's allies and partners in the region of our solidarity in the current period".

Trump responded to that development by threatening to unleash "fire and fury" on North Korea if it continued to threaten the U.S. Since then, Trump has exchanged threats with North Korea, which said Wednesday that its military would have plans in place by mid-August to attack waters near the U.S. territory of Guam.

The Chinese foreign ministry said Xi urged Trump to avoid "words and deeds" that would "exacerbate" the already-tense situation and to exercise restraint and seek a political settlement. Trump tweeted early Friday morning.
