Susan Rice gives useless advice on North Korea
US President Donald Trump on Saturday held a phone conversation with his French counterpart Emmanuel Macron, stressing that the United States is ready to apply all available measures, including the military ones, to settle the North Korean nuclear issue, the White House said.
In a statement Saturday, Macron said the situation "undermines the preservation of global peace" and the North Korean regime "poses a serious threat to the security of its neighbors".
"North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States".
Trump also reiterated their mutual commitment to denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula, it added.
Trump's "fire and fury" remark on Tuesday followed reports that North Korea produced a nuclear weapon small enough to fit inside a missile. Friday morning, Trump tweeted that the military was "locked and loaded" should North Korea "act unwisely".
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.
