French leader urges calm in North Korea crisis

Al Gore And Linked In CEO Jeff Weiner Address Washington Ideas Forum

Earlier this week, Trump said if North Korea made any more threats to the US, it will be met with "fire and fury".

They agreed that North Korea must stop its provocative and escalatory behaviour, the White House said.

The United States and France have pledged to work to denuclearize North Korea.

Trump said in a tweet Friday that US military options were "locked and loaded" if North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un acted unwisely.

Trump's call with Macron came hours after he talked with Chinese President Xi Jinping in a separate phone call. "We have a rogue dictator in the hermit kingdom who is starving his people, selling them as slaves, trading in contraband, trading in arms, under U.N. sanction without any real influence by the United States or the West", Tauscher told "Power Lunch".

The warm words exchanged between Xi and Trump Friday night in the USA masked underlying tensions between Beijing and Washington over how to deal with the errant regime in Pyongyang.

Kaepernick opted out of his contract with the San Francisco 49ers after the season, but hasn't yet been signed by another team. Lynch has not spoken to the media at this time, so it's unclear if his statement and the incident are directly related.

Defense Secretary James Mattis issued a statement Wednesday in regards to the threat posed by North Korea.

The comments came after Trump unleashed a slew of fresh threats against North Korea on Friday, declaring the USA military "locked and loaded".

The harsh rhetoric from Washington and Pyongyang during recent months has exacerbated an already confrontational relationship between our countries, and has probably eliminated any chance of good faith peace talks between the United States and North Korea.

Terence Roehrig, a national security affairs professor at the U.S. Naval War College in Newport, Rhode Island, said Trump's posture suggested he was trying to dissuade Kim from further provocations rather than setting the stage for a U.S. military strike.

Professor Lucas said: "The Chinese and the USA have been talking behind the scenes for months about what to do".

The two leaders also reiterated a commitment to the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula. All parties must assure North Koreans they we will forego any military action against them if North Korea remains peaceful. They may continue launching missile tests but they don't want a war, and the USA doesn't want military action either.
