Trump tweeted that he and Xi spoke about that agreed-to meeting and that Xi "appreciates that the US is working to solve the problem diplomatically rather than going with the ominous alternative."

"The two leaders welcomed the prospect of dialogue between the United States and North Korea, and committed to maintain pressure and sanctions until Pyongyang takes tangible steps toward complete, verifiable, and irreversible denuclearisation," the White House said in a readout of the call.

Trump has spoken with a number of world leaders after he was briefed on North Korean by the visiting South Korean national security adviser.

He had earlier reached out to French President Emmanuel Macron, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, during which the leaders agreed to continue to maintain pressure on North Korea.
