Trump's statements on North Korea reminiscent of Bush's preventive war doctrine

The website 38 North, which is an authority on North Korea, says that satellite images suggest that North Korea could be preparing new tests of ballistic missile submarines. Washington has repeatedly called on Beijing to do more against its ally north korea.

Trump's call with Macron came hours after he talked with Chinese President Xi Jinping in a separate phone call.

Trump also reiterated their mutual commitment to denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula, it added.

Earlier this week, France had praised Trump's "determination" in standing up to Pyongyang.

The White House says Trump also told Xi he looked forward to seeing him in China later this year. Just as we reach the 72nd anniversary of the nuclear bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Trump is making thinly veiled threats to again use USA nuclear weapons if North Korea continues the same behavior.

In an editorial on Saturday, North Korea's Minju Joson newspaper said that the US "finds itself in an ever worsening dilemma, being thrown into the grip of extreme security unrest by the DPRK".

DPRK stands for North Korea's official name, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.

There is no military solution to the North Korea nuclear issue.

"Trump and Macron pledged to work together with allies and partners to enforce United Nations sanctions and achieve denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula", the White House said.

On Tuesday, Donald Trump had claimed that North Korea would "fire and anger" of the United States if ever the threats of Pyongyang continued. However, the upcoming joint military exercises between Seoul and Washington, during which tensions on the Korean peninsula tend to worsen, start soon, around the 21st of August.

He made comments Saturday while visiting his father's tomb in his ancestral hometown of Nagato in western Japan.
