North Korea dominated the conversation between the two leaders, according to a readout of the call.

More than 60 Democratic lawmakers have expressed their "profound concern" over US President Donald Trump's threatening rhetoric about North Korea, insisting that any military attack "must be debated and authorized by Congress".

But experts say China, which accounts for around 90% of North Korea's foreign trade, is unwilling to squeeze Kim's regime hard enough to make it give up on its nuclear program because that would risk the chaotic collapse of a state that Beijing wants to keep as a strategic buffer.

The crisis blew up following the disclosure that U.S. intelligence analysts had concluded North Korean scientists had developed a nuclear warhead small enough to fit on a ballistic missile.

The phone call with the French President came hours after Trump spoke with Chinese President Xi Jinping. -China trading relationship. But analysts have cautioned that Trump faces a huge challenge in his desire to significantly reduce the USA trade deficit with China, which past year stood at more than $300 billion. "What they may not know is that China is also forcing and coercing American companies that operate in China to turn over their technologies".

After the telephones talks on Saturday, the White House said in a statement that the two leaders discussed the increasingly unsafe situation associated with North Korea's destabilizing and escalatory behavior.

They agreed that North Korea must stop its provocative and escalatory behaviour, the White House said.

Mr Trump has threatened to rain "fire and fury" on the reclusive state after Pyongyang said it was "carefully examining" a plan to strike Guam with missiles.

"Hopefully it will all work out", he told reporters in Bedminster, New Jersey.

Both Reuters and CNN reported this week that Trump was planning to call for the investigation to be considered earlier this month but that the president waited until after a United Nations Security Council vote to impose new sanctions on North Korea. The U.S. hasn't taken any public steps to prepare for hostilities such as evacuating Americans from Seoul, which is within range of North Korean artillery, or moving ships, aircraft or troops into position for an imminent response.

"The president's rhetoric could be aimed at China, but largely it is aimed at North Korea, trying to deter", Roehrig said. "North Koreans are not suicidal".

Jamil Jaffer, founder of the National Security Institute at George Mason University's Antonin Scalia Law School in Arlington, Virginia, said Trump's "muscular response" to North Korea was "the exact type of resolve we need to force the hand" of Pyongyang's "Chinese patrons".

The administration official who confirmed that Trump would sign the order contended it was unrelated to the showdown with North Korea. Xi "stressed that China and the US share the same interests on the denuclearization and peace on the Korean Peninsula".
