French leader urges calm in North Korea crisis

US President Donald Trump on Saturday held a phone conversation with his French counterpart Emmanuel Macron, stressing that the United States is ready to apply all available measures, including the military ones, to settle the North Korean nuclear issue, the White House said.

"They discussed the need to confront the increasingly unsafe situation associated with North Korea's destabilising and escalatory behaviour", the White House said in a statement on Saturday.

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. president ramped up his warnings to Pyongyang, saying the Stalinist regime would "truly regret" taking hostile action against the United States.

"President Trump and President Macron pledged to work together with allies and partners to enforce United Nations sanctions and achieve denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula", the readout said.

According to the White House, Trump and Xi affirmed that the recent adoption of a new UN Security Council resolution regarding North Korea was an important and necessary step toward achieving peace and stability on the Korean Peninsula.

"If North Korea (DPRK) does anything in terms of even thinking about attack of anybody that we love or we represent or our allies or us. they should be very nervous", Trump said on Thursday.

Trump's warning came after the North threatened to fire ballistic missiles over Japan towards the US Pacific island of Guam.
