UK Prime Minister Theresa May and US President Donald Trump stressed the importance of the international community constraining threats that North Korean regime poses to other nations.

LONDON (Sputnik) — May andTrump emphasized during a phone call the importance of the international community, in particular China, putting pressure on North Korea, considering the threat it poses, a Downing Street spokesperson said Monday.

"The Prime Minister and President also stressed the importance of the international community, including China, putting pressure on North Korea to constrain the threat it poses," the spokesperson said.

In March, Trump said Chinese authorities have done "little to help," to address the threat posed by the North Korean nuclear program. However, on April 2, he said the United States counted on China's assistance in solving the problem of North Korean threat, but was ready to act alone in case of Beijing's abstention.

Since the beginning of 2016, North Korea carried out a number of missile launches and nuclear tests, prompting worldwide criticism, including from Beijing. As a result, the UN Security Council tightened the sanctions regime for North Korea in an attempt to force Pyongyang to stop ballistic missile launches and nuclear tests, including imposing a measure intended to affect the country’s trade, export of natural resources, arms trade and banking sector.
