"President Trump reiterated to President Macron the United States' commitment to stop the North Korean nuclear menace".
Calling it "the responsibility of all", Macron called on the global community to "act in a concerted, firm and effective manner, as it has just done in the (U.N.) Security Council, to bring North Korea back to the path of dialogue".
The website 38 North, which is an authority on North Korea, says that satellite images suggest that North Korea could be preparing new tests of ballistic missile submarines. North Korea dominated the conversation between the two leaders, according to a readout of the call.
"Trump looks forward to seeing Xi in China later this year, a meeting that will be a very historic event".
Earlier this week, Trump said if North Korea made any more threats to the US, it will be met with "fire and fury".
Soderberg criticizes the president's lack of diplomacy and she personally wishes that the worldwide community increase pressure on North Korea rather than use outright force.
DPRK stands for North Korea's official name, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea. However, the upcoming joint military exercises between Seoul and Washington, during which tensions on the Korean peninsula tend to worsen, start soon, around the 21st of August.
In response, Japan began on Saturday to deploy its missile defense system Patriot, after threats from Pyongyang.
The ministry did not confirm whether Defense Minister Itsunori Onodera has already issued an order to shoot down incoming missiles.
This week, Trump has issued stern warnings to North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un. Trump's comments, however, do not appear to be backed by significant military mobilization on either side of the Pacific, and an important, quiet diplomatic channel remains open. "I think they can become even better", he says, according to the same source.
