But during his meeting, Trump told Xi, "I appreciate the things that you have done relative to the very substantial problem that we all face in North Korea".

WASHINGTON | North Korean success in test-firing an Intercontinental Ballistic Missile puts the new South Korean government in the hard position of having to appear tough while still looking for dialogue with the North.

President Donald Trump has long said China is the lynchpin to solving North Korea's saber rattling with missile tests. "It may be longer than I like, more than you like, but there will be a success. one way or the other".

The response ran counter to China's repeated calls for North Korea's to stop its missile and nuclear tests in exchange for the US and South Korea halting the joint military drills that antagonize the Kim regime.

In the meantime, Beijing will not change its tone from one of diplomacy to punishment, as North Korea "wants to talk to the U.S. directly", Zhou said.

"It will be very telling based on how other countries respond-whether they want to hold Kim Jong-Un's hand through this process or whether they want to be on the side of so many countries who know that this is a unsafe person with the access to an ICBM", said Haley. In a joint statement, the two countries called on North Korea to stop nuclear tests and asked the United States and South Korea to stop future joint military drills.

Trump says he also discussed "trade and trade imbalances" with Xi and aims to reach an arrangement that is more "equitable" and "reciprocal". The Trump administration also has high hopes that China will step up to resolve the North Korean issue for the worldwide community, although many are beginning to question whether Beijing and Washington's interests are in alignment.

"We have not given up hope", Tillerson said.

He has frequently urged China to press the leaders of isolated North Korea to give up their nuclear programme, and on Wednesday he denounced China's trade with its defiant neighbour.

Earlier, Trump also met one-on-one with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.

Nevertheless, Haley's repeated references to trade measures against China over North Korea do not mean Mr. Trump actually intends to pursue such actions.

Meeting with May, the British leader, Trump pointed to their "special relationship", and said the two countries were working on a trade agreement.

Trump first complained about China last month, saying Chinese efforts have "not worked out". "We speak very frequently with them about the situation in North Korea".

Earlier, Trump said Saturday he had a "tremendous meeting" with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Friday, his first comments on the talks with the Russian leader.

White House officials told reporters aboard Air Force One after the summit that the talks were "direct" on both North Korea and economic issues, with Trump telling Xi he expects progress.

In a lengthy report on the meeting, Chinese state media said Xi had reiterated China's strong opposition to the US deployment of its Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) missile defense system in South Korea, which remains a sore point in US-China relations.

"I do think we have to use our allies across the European Union - which by the way we have strained because of commentary - and at the same time, recognize the global threat and implore the Chinese to use their influence to continue efforts to get them to move away from nuclear sophistication", he told reporters this week.
