US ready to act alone if China won’t help with North Korea: Trump


US President Donald Trump has said that the United States is prepared to act alone if China does not take a tougher stand against North Korea’s nuclear program.

In an interview with the Financial Times, US President said he will discuss the growing threat from Kim Jong Un’s nuclear programme with Chinese President Xi Jinping at his Florida resort this week, in their first meeting.

The two are expected to discuss a number of issues, including North Korea, trade and territorial disputes in the South China Sea during their meeting on Thursday and Friday.

Mr Trump said China has great influence over North Korea and if Beijing decides to help US with North Korea, it will be very good for China, and if they don’t it won’t be good for anyone.

American President said trade was the incentive for China to work with the United States. However, he added that the United States could totally handle the situation in North Korea without China’s help.

UN resolutions have failed so far to deter North Korea from conducting nuclear and missile tests. Last year, the North conducted two nuclear tests and two dozen tests of ballistic missiles.
