China's Xi urges peaceful resolution of North Korea tension in call with Trump

China's Xi urges peaceful resolution of North Korea tension in call with TrumpBy Michael Martina and Christian Shepherd BEIJING (Reuters) – Chinese President Xi Jinping called for a peaceful resolution of rising tension on the Korean peninsula in a telephone conversation with U.S. President Donald Trump on Wednesday, as a U.S. aircraft carrier strike group steamed towards the region. Trump, in an early morning note on Twitter, said the call with Xi, just days after they met in the United States, was a “very good” discussion of the “menace of North Korea”. The call came as an influential state-run Chinese newspaper warned that the Korean peninsula was the closest it has been to a “military clash” since North Korea’s first nuclear test in 2006.
