"They discussed the need to confront the increasingly risky situation associated with North Korea's destabilising and escalatory behaviour", the White House said in a statement on Saturday.

Meanwhile, in a separate statement issued by the Elysee Palace on Saturday, Macron urged the worldwide community to refrain from escalating the situation around North Korea.

France and other UN Security Council members want North Korea "to conform without delay to its global obligations and proceed with the complete, verifiable and irreversible dismantlement of its nuclear and ballistic programmes", Macron said in the statement. The president of the Republic assures France's allies and partners in the region of his solidarity during the current period.

Macron also stressed that the worldwide community should keep on working in order to "encourage Pyongyang to return to dialogue without preconditions".

"Trump reiterated to President Macron the United States' commitment to stop the North Korean nuclear menace".

U.S. President Donald Trump said Friday that the U.S. military was "locked and loaded" to deal with the nuclear issue in the Korean Peninsula.

The Chinese foreign ministry said Xi urged Trump to avoid "words and deeds" that would "exacerbate" the already-tense situation, exercise restraint and seek a political settlement.

Days before the war of words, the United Nations Security Council, in an exceptional session on Saturday, unanimously adopted the Resolution 2371 to impose new sanctions on the DPRK for ignoring previous resolutions and its recent intercontinental ballistic missile tests. Trump in turn, warned, that North Korea's possible actions would be met with "fire and fury" from the United States.
