France's Macron speaks to Trump, warns over N Korea escalation

France's Macron speaks to Trump, warns over N Korea escalation

President Donald Trump is seeking continued help from China's president in addressing the threat posed by North Korea's nuclear developments. "This is tragicomedy of its own making". That's the question actor Kal Penn wants answered.

The comments came after Trump unleashed a slew of fresh threats against North Korea on Friday, declaring the US military "locked and loaded".

Xi Jinping, the leader of North Korea's key ally China, urged Trump on Saturday to avoid rhetoric that could inflame tensions, after the USA leader ramped up his warnings to Pyongyang, saying the Stalinist regime would "truly regret" taking hostile action against the United States.

"China can bring North Korea to its knees".

Rep. David Cicilline urged Speaker Paul Ryan on Friday to call back the House from its August recess in order to debate legislation that would require congressional approval for a US pre-emptive strike.

Trump has long vowed to pressure China to rein in North Korea, particularly its rapidly advancing nuclear and missile programs.

"I get it, I understand wanting to say that, but this is like a hostage situation". Guam's Homeland Security adviser, George Charfauros, said on Friday it would take 14 minutes for a missile fired from North Korea to reach Guam.

The ministry did not confirm whether Defense Minister Itsunori Onodera has already issued an order to shoot down incoming missiles.

U.S. stocks closed lower on Tuesday after a late afternoon selling spree as investors fled for safety after U.S. Markets remained concerned over the risk of a U.S. first-strike against North Korean nuclear facilities.

US President Donald Trump and his French counterpart pledged in a phone call Saturday to work to denuclearise North Korea, but Trump again spoke of possible "military measures" if other steps fail.

The president appeared to draw another red line that would trigger a US attack against North Korea and "big, big trouble" for its leader, Kim Jong Un.

Cicilline urged the Trump administration to exhaust all diplomatic options before resorting to military force.

"It would mean the end of their country as they know it", he said.
