White House: Donald Trump and Emmanuel Macron on growing North Korea's threat

Trump and Macron spoke over phone and discussed the need to confront the increasingly unsafe situation regarding North Korea's destabilising and escalatory behaviour, the White House said.

The statement said that the United States and allies were ready to apply the full range of diplomatic, economic, and military measures to end any threat.

French President Emmanuel Macron has called on all sides in the North Korean nuclear crisis to act responsibly "to prevent any escalation of tensions" after a days-long war of words between Washington and Pyongyang.

US officials and others familiar with the exchanges say they're occurring between the USA envoy for North Korea policy and a senior North Korean diplomat at the country's United Nations mission.

France is a member of the Security Council, which approved fresh sanctions on North Korea this month for its recent intercontinental ballistic missile testing.

Trump also reiterated their mutual commitment to denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula, it added. "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.

US President Donald Trump on Saturday reassured Guam it was secure amid mounting regional tensions, vowing that American military forces "stand ready" to safeguard the US Pacific island territory against a belligerent North Korea.
