On Saturday, Trump said on his Twitter he was "very disappointed in China" as "they do nothing for us with North Korea," adding that former US leaders had made it possible for Beijing to make "hundreds of billions of dollars in trade." Earlier in the day, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe called on the international community, especially China and Russia, to increase the pressure on Pyongyang.
On Friday, North Korea conducted the second test of an intercontinental ballistic missile in less than a month. According to the state-run Korean Central News Agency (KCNA), the test was successful with the missile having reached the altitude of 3,725 kilometers (2,314 miles) and traveled 998 kilometers for about 47 minutes before falling in the Sea of Japan.
Pyongyang's tests have been a source of concern, primarily, for its close neighbors, such as South Korea and Japan and their allies.
