Trump, Macron agree to work together on North Korea-White House

French President Emmanuel Macron on Saturday warned against an "escalation of tensions" over North Korea amid a growing war of words between Washington and Pyongyang.

"They discussed the need to confront the increasingly unsafe situation associated with North Korea's destabilising and escalatory behaviour", the White House said in a statement on Saturday.

It said the United States was ready "along with its allies, to apply the full range of diplomatic, economic and military measures" to end any nuclear threat from the North.

"President Trump and President Macron pledged to work together with allies and partners to enforce United Nations sanctions and achieve denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula", the readout said. North Korea dominated the conversation between the two leaders, according to a readout of the call.

The phone call with the French President came hours after Trump spoke with Chinese President Xi Jinping.

The White House says Trump also told Xi he looked forward to seeing him in China later this year. "The relationship between the two Presidents is an extremely close one, and will hopefully lead to a peaceful resolution of the North Korea problem", the White House said.

Trump raised alarm around the world - and particularly in Asia - by warning that North Korea would face "fire and fury like the world has never seen" if it were to keep threatening the United States.
