    Washington will welcome Beijing's help in resolving problems with Pyongyang but can do it on its own, too, Donald Trump said.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – The United States would welcome China’s assistance in resolving the North Korea "problem," but will deal with the issue itself should Beijing decide to not get involved, US President Donald Trump said Tuesday.

    North Korea has conducted a number of missile launches in the past months as well as its fifth and biggest nuclear test last September, prompting condemnation from the United Nations.
