The agreement came during telephonic talks between US President Donald Trump and his French counterpart Emmanuel Macron. 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. "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", said a readout of the phone call.

China won't come to North Korea's help if it launches missiles threatening USA soil and there is retaliation, a state-owned newspaper warned on Friday, but it would intervene if Washington strikes first.

In a statement from the Elysee Palace, Macron expressed his "concern at the ballistic and nuclear threat coming from North Korea", saying world leaders needed to work to get Pyongyang to "resume the path of dialogue without conditions". Just as we reach the 72nd anniversary of the nuclear bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, President Trump is making thinly veiled threats to again use USA nuclear weapons if they continue the same behavior!

Comments come after phone call with Donald Trump in which both leaders agreed on need to confront 'increasingly unsafe situation'. Far from toning down his words after saying on Tuesday that any threats by Pyongyang would be "met with fire and fury like the world has never seen", Trump said those remarks may have not gone far enough. Pyongyang then said it was considering an attack near the Pacific island of Guam where several U.S. military bases are located.

North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un responded by threatening, if attacked, to strike targets in or around Guam in the western Pacific.
