Trump, Xi discuss NKorea as key nations split on strategy
September 7, 2017
WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump discussed North Korea's strongest nuclear test yet with Chinese President Xi Jinping on Wednesday, as the U.S. proposed crippling new sanctions and world leaders tussled over whether pressure or dialogue was the best way to rein in the rogue nation.
The White House stressed the U.S. and Chinese leaders' joint commitment to ridding the Korean Peninsula of nuclear weapons. But differences were clear on how best to reach that remote goal as fears escalate over Pyongyang's emerging capability to strike America with a nuclear-tipped missile.
