Macron Urges Int'l Community to Avoid Escalation of Tensions Around N Korea

Macron Urges Int'l Community to Avoid Escalation of Tensions Around N Korea”

"Trump reiterated to President Macron the United States' commitment to stop the North Korean nuclear menace".

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". "President Trump stated that the United States is ready, along with its allies, to apply the full range of diplomatic, economic and military measures to achieve that goal", the readout of the phone call released by the White House said.

North Korea said on Saturday that almost 3.5 million workers, party members and soldiers volunteered to join or rejoin its army to resist new UN sanctions and to fight against the United States in the current geopolitical tension between Pyongyang and Washington.

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

French President Emmanuel Macron urged the global community to refrain from escalating the situation around North Korea, the Elysee Palace said in a communique on Saturday. North Korea dominated the conversation between the two leaders, according to a readout of the call.

They agreed that North Korea must stop its provocative and escalatory behaviour, the White House said.

Days before the war of words, the United Nations Security Council, in an exceptional session on Saturday, unanimously adopted the Resolution 2371 to impose new sanctions on the DPRK for ignoring previous resolutions and its recent intercontinental ballistic missile tests.

In a statement, China's foreign ministry said Xi told Trump that a peaceful resolution to the North Korean nuclear issue was essential, and urged calm.

North Korea's military said Wednesday it was considering a missile attack near the U.S. island territory of Guam after President Donald Trump threatened Pyongyang with "fire and fury".
