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

"Trump reiterated to President Macron the United States' commitment to stop the North Korean nuclear menace".

North Korea's military is considering a plan to launch a missile strike on a USA territory it says poses a threat.

The statement came just hours after Chinese leader Xi Jinping urged Trump in a separate phone call to avoid rhetoric that could inflame tensions with Pyongyang. North Korea dominated the conversation between the two leaders, according to a readout of the call.

15 killed, 25 injured in explosion near Pishin Stop
Mineral-rich Balochistan, where Gwader is located, has been plagued for decades by a separatist insurgency and sectarian killings. The ISPR further said that incendiary explosives were used in the attack and that was the reason why nearby vehicles caught fire.

Tensions between the US and North Korea have risen to their highest point of Trump's presidency in recent days.

Although it's easy to focus on the last quarter-century of North Korean aggression - ushered in by all three Kim rulers - where we are today is very much a result of 70-plus years of historical dominoes.

"This is being put together incrementally and of all the countries and all the issues you deal with، North Korea is not the one to be kludging together statements by the president and cabinet secretaries because the risk of miscalculation is so high،" Medeiros said by telephone from Tokyo، Japan.

North Korea warned foreign diplomats to leave Pyongyang in 2013 when it suspended work at a joint inter-Korean industrial park and threatened missile strikes on U.S. Pacific bases, notably in Guam and Hawaii.
