Xi Urges Trump to Exercise Restraint over North Korea to Reduce Tensions

BEIJING – China’s President Xi Jinping has urged his United States counterpart, Donald Trump, to practice restraint over North Korea to avoid further tensions on the Korean peninsula, after several days of mutual threats between Washington and Pyongyang.

“Concerned parties should avoid remarks and actions that could escalate tension on the Korean Peninsula,” Xi told Trump over the telephone on Saturday.

He also said that China was willing to work with the US government to resolve the issue, according to Chinese state news agency Xinhua.

“China and the United States have common interests in achieving denuclearization on the Korean Peninsula and maintaining peace and stability there,” Xi added in a conversation that comes days after North Korea threatened to bomb the US island of Guam in the Pacific.

On Friday, Trump took to Twitter to warn that “Military solutions are now fully in place, locked and loaded.”

The White House on Saturday said that the two leaders agreed during their phone conversation that the “recent adoption of a new UN Security Council resolution” to tackle North Korea’s continuing weapons tests was “an important and necessary step toward achieving peace and stability” in the region.

“The Presidents also reiterated their mutual commitment to the denuclearization of the Korean peninsula,” the statement said. Washington has repeatedly criticized Beijing for a perceived lack of action or intervention against Pyongyang.
