Trump tweet: US 'locked and loaded, should North Korea act unwisely'

Chinese President Xi calls for restraint over North Korea

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

North Korea's state-run Korean Central News Agency accused Trump earlier of "driving the situation on the Korean peninsula to the brink of a nuclear war".

"Kim Jong Un freezes any nuclear tests and any missile launches - we mean ballistic missiles - and the US and South Korea freeze large-scale military exercises", Lavrov said, adding that North Korea regularly uses the drills to justify its missile tests and nuclear program.

Trump again urged the regime of Kim Jong-Un to keep its nuclear weapons and ballistic missile programs in check, as the North's official news agency accused the United States of driving the situation "to the brink" of war.

"Hopefully it will all work out".

The CCTV said Xi called for a peaceful resolution of North Korea's nuclear ambitions and stressed that peace on the Korean Peninsula is the common interest of China and the U.S.

Tensions on the Korean peninsula eased slightly on Monday as South Korea's president said resolving Pyongyang's nuclear ambitions must be done peacefully and key US officials played down the risk of an imminent war with North Korea.

Trump also said Friday that North Korean leader Kim Jong Un "will truly regret it and he will regret it fast" if he issued an overt threat or attacked Guam or a U.S. ally. Trump wrote Friday from his golf club retreat in New Jersey, where he is on a working vacation.

Developing nuclear weapons that threaten the United States is Kim's insurance policy against being overthrown by a US -led coalition, Joo Seong-ha, a defector who was imprisoned in North Korea before escaping to South Korea, told USA TODAY.

Mr Xi told Mr Trump the parties should "avoid words and deeds that will exacerbate the tension on the Korean Peninsula".

At the time North Korea said it was launching a telecommunications satellite, but Washington, Seoul and Tokyo believed Pyongyang was testing an intercontinental ballistic missile. The North's nuclear tests have also irked the US. ASEAN ministers urged North Korea to "immediately comply fully" with all U.N. Security Council resolutions, which include the most stringent sanctions yet that were imposed last week.

Barcelona to complete Coutinho, Dembele transfers this week
Dortmund chief executive Hans-Joachim Watzke has since told Barcelona they have a two-week deadline to complete the Dembele transfer.

"One of the fundamental lessons of that period was that we need to be clear and detailed about what will happen if you do X - so if you do X, we will do Y. And at the same time, we need to be clear on what you can do to avoid those consequences.", said Krejsa.

North Korea did not threaten Guam with a nuclear attack, but the crisis between Pyongyang and the U.S. has stirred fears of nuclear conflict in the region.

China, which has long feared a unified Korea allied with the US, also wants the American troops removed.

"In total, North Korea's exports and imports were almost one-third of North Korea's gross domestic product in 2015 - a higher trade dependence than Iran had in 2010, when the USA and our worldwide allies finally got serious about imposing sanctions on Tehran", Harrell pointed out.

Trump declined to say whether Washington might consider a preemptive strike against North Korea, but said he was still open to negotiation.

In another statement, the White House said Trump spoke with Guam governor Eddie Calvo.

Russian Federation and China have the closest, relatively-speaking, diplomatic relations with the insular state of North Korea.

In an editorial on Friday, China's state owned Global Times newspaper warned that China won't come to North Korea's aid if it launches missiles threatening USA soil and there is retaliation - but that China would intervene if Washington strikes first.

Foreign policy and national security experts have also raised questions about Trump's response to North Korea - unprecedented for a United States president - noting that past administrations have shied away from such comments to avoid adding to North Korea's credibility. "On these two issues, China and the United States should respect each other and increase cooperation".

Trump and Xi "agreed North Korea must stop its provocative and escalatory behavior."

It added that the United States and allies were ready "to apply the full range of diplomatic, economic and military measures" to end any threat.
