President Trump doubled-down on his message to North Korea, calling on Beijing to implement U.N. Security Council sanctions against the regime.
During his visit to the Great Hall of the People early Thursday, the president emphasized the need for global cooperation to reel-in Pyongyang.
The president also called on every nation — including Russia — to assist with diplomatic and economic pressure.
He stressed that a solution exists to ending North Korea’s nuclear ambitions, adding that all responsible nations must join forces.
“We agreed not to replicate failed approaches of the past, and there were many,” said the president. “We agreed on the need to fully implement all U.N. Security Council Resolutions on North Korea, and to increase economic pressure until North Korea abandons it’s reckless and dangerous path.”
President Trump then said he looks forward to many years of success and friendship with Beijing in solving world problems.
