President Trump is thanking China and Russia for helping pass increased sanctions on North Korea.
The White House released a statement on Saturday saying the president appreciates China and Russia’s cooperation in securing passage of the resolution.
Earlier that day, the UN Security Council unanimously voted to impose new sanctions on Pyongyang following its recent intercontinental ballistic missile tests.
The statement added the president and his administration will keep working with allies to increase pressure on North Korea to end its threatening behavior.
