China Urges US Restraint on N. Korea   04/24 06:07

   Chinese President Xi Jinping called for restraint in dealing with North 
Korea during a telephone call with U.S. President Donald Trump, Chinese state 
media reported Monday, amid speculation that the North could soon carry out a 
sixth nuclear test.

   BEIJING (AP) -- Chinese President Xi Jinping called for restraint in dealing 
with North Korea during a telephone call with U.S. President Donald Trump, 
Chinese state media reported Monday, amid speculation that the North could soon 
carry out a sixth nuclear test.

   State broadcaster CCTV quoted Xi as telling Trump that China strongly 
opposes North Korea's nuclear weapons program, which violates United Nations 
Security Council resolutions, and hopes "all parties will exercise restraint 
and avoid aggravating the situation" on the Korean Peninsula.

   The Trump administration has warned that all options, including a military 
strike, are on the table to stop North Korea from developing a nuclear-tipped 
missile that could reach the U.S. mainland. However, U.S. officials have told 
The Associated Press that a military response isn't likely. Trump has 
reportedly settled on a strategy that emphasizes increasing pressure on North 
Korea with the help of China.

   "Only if all sides bear the responsibilities they're supposed to bear and 
come together, can the nuclear issue on the peninsula be resolved as quickly as 
possible," Xi told Trump, according to CCTV.

   The phone call, which took place Monday morning Beijing time, came as South 
Korean officials warned there is a chance that North Korea will conduct a 
nuclear test or a maiden intercontinental missile launch around the founding 
anniversary of its military on Tuesday.

   Trump has pressed Xi to exert greater pressure on North Korea, given China's 
status as the country's economic lifeline and sole major ally. Monday's call is 
the second time that the two leaders have spoken by telephone since meeting in 
Florida earlier this month.

   In an interview Friday at the Oval Office, Trump told the AP that he 
declined to label China a currency manipulator mostly because he needed Xi's 
help with the North Korean crisis.

   "They are working with us on North Korea. Now maybe that'll work out or 
maybe it won't," Trump said, adding that he had a "great relationship" with the 
Chinese president.

   Trump also spoke Monday with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, and they 
agreed to urge North Korea to refrain from what Abe called provocative actions.
