Donald Trump has suggested that the US could take unilateral action in response to North Korea, to eliminate the nuclear threat.
In an interview with the Financial Mail, Trump said “If China is not going to solve North Korea, we will.”
The possible military strike has prompted concern from analysts.
This interview came ahead of the meeting he is having with China's president Xi Jinping on Thursday and Friday of this week.— Steve Vines, EWN correspondent in Hong Kong
I think quite high on that agenda is America's frustration with China over what it perceives to be a failure to act on North Korea and I think he is upping the ante ahead of that meeting to try and force the Chinese into a position where maybe they would enhance trade sanctions.— Steve Vines, EWN correspondent in Hong Kong
