Trump says military action against North Korea is not first choice

Trump says military action against North Korea is not first choice”

Besides, if Kim Jong Un's regime were to collapse, China would face a massive influx of refugees from its impoverished neighbour with which it shares a border stretching 870 miles. It has helped sustain Kim Jong-un's regime, and has historically opposed harsh worldwide sanctions on North Korea in the hope of avoiding a regime collapse.

After years of incrementally tougher sanctions against North Korea, the United Nations is now weighing additional steps.

A US-drafted resolution obtained by AFP also called for banning textile exports and ending payments made to North Korean labourers sent overseas, further depriving the regime of revenue to pursue its military programs.

The phone call comes on the heels of Trump and his administration's stern warnings to North Korea that further threats would be met with military force, including with a possible nuclear strike.

Ms Haley said on Monday that the United States was seeking a vote on the new sanctions on September 11.

North Korea on Sunday triggered global alarm when it detonated what it described as a hydrogen bomb designed for a long-range missile, which was followed by signs that Pyongyang was preparing a new missile launch.

The Chinese President informed his U.S. counterpart that Beijing has been firm in preserving worldwide nuclear non-proliferation regime, maintaining peace and stability on Korean Peninsula and resolving the nuclear issue of North Korea through talks.

"President Xi would like to do something". But, he indicated, other avenues for pressure would come first.

Trump said Washington has been deeply concerned over the ongoing situation on the Korean Peninsula, and attaches importance to China's essential role in resolving the issue.

The White House Wednesday released details of calls Tuesday with British Prime Minister Theresa May and Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull. "But we will not be putting up with what's happening in North Korea", Trump told reporters at the White House. Trump repeated his commitment to "defending the homeland, territories, and allies of the United States, using all available diplomatic and military capabilities". A purge of top North Korean officials since its young leader came to power and the assassination of Kim Jong-nam, Kim Jongun's exiled half-brother, in Malaysia also stoked concern in China about the stability and direction of the North Korean leadership. North Korea conducted another nuclear test over the weekend.
