A White House statement said Trump and President Emmanuel Macron had discussed "the increasingly risky situation associated with North Korea's destabilizing and escalatory behavior".

In the statement, French President Emmanuel Macron "expresses his concern" over the deterioration of the ballistic and nuclear threat from the DPRK, "which undermines the preservation of global peace and security".

In a statement, Macron voiced his "concern at the ballistic and nuclear threat coming from North Korea", saying the global community needed to work to get Pyongyang to "resume the path of dialogue without conditions".

He also assured "France's allies and partners in the region of our solidarity in the current period".

US President Donald Trump and his French counterpart pledged in a phone call Saturday to work to denuclearize North Korea, but Trump again spoke of possible "military measures" if other steps fail.

The Chinese foreign ministry said Xi urged Trump to avoid "words and deeds" that would "exacerbate" the already-tense situation, exercise restraint and seek a political settlement.

On Tuesday, Trump issued a controversial warning to the DPRK, saying that threats from the country would be met with "fire and fury like the world has never seen".

Last week, the UN Security Council unanimously adopted Resolution 2371, which further tightens sanctions against North Korea in response to Pyongyang's recent ballistic missiles tests.
