Trump to launch investigation into China's trade practice

North Korea responded by detailing a plan to fire ballistic missiles toward the USA territory of Guam, home to US military bases.

Actor Kal Penn has pointed out the president of the United States' posts fit the bill.

In a statement Saturday, Macron said the situation "undermines the preservation of global peace" and the North Korean regime "poses a serious threat to the security of its neighbors".

Since the World Trade Organization (WTO) was established in 1995, the USA has not imposed any trade investigations or sanctions based on Section 301 because that kind of unilateral action violates WTO rules requiring trade disputes among its members to be addressed on the WTO platform.

The move, which could eventually lead to steep tariffs on Chinese goods, comes at a time when Trump has asked China to do more to crack down on North Korea's nuclear missile program as he threatens possible military action against Pyongyang. "The previous three presidents were not able to find an adequate solution [to the North Korea crisis], so he can't be blamed for all this".

CNN also reported that Trump told Chinese President Xi Jinping about the expected executive action in a phone call on Friday. Xi "stressed that China and the U.S. share the same interests on the denuclearisation and peace on the Korean peninsula". "And I think China will do a lot more".

North Korea has lashed back at the US following President Donald Trump's latest warnings.

The administration has been eyeing other moves to rebalance the U.S. "This is tragicomedy of its own making". Pyongyang this week threatened to fire missiles near the USA territory of Guam during an exchange of bellicose rhetoric with Trump.

The announcement followed a call on Friday between Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping. Xi urged both sides not to do anything that would aggravate tensions.

The US is ready along with its allies to apply the full range of diplomatic, economic and military measures to stop the North Korean nuclear menace, President Donald Trump told his French counterpart Emmanuel Macron on Satruday. "China is widely recognised as the biggest source of the problem", he said.

Prime Minister Shinzo Abe says he will do everything he can to protect the Japanese people as tensions escalate over North Korean plans to send missiles flying over Japan toward Guam.

"If Americans continue to have their best technologies and intellectual property stolen or forcibly transferred off-shore, the United States will find it hard to maintain its current technology leadership position", they added.
