The Chinese president’s told Donald Trump to avoid words that increase tensions with North Korea.

The two men have discussed developments over the phone and the White House says they agreed Kim Jung-un’s regime “must stop its provocative behaviour”.

Washington insists its forces are ready to protect Guam after Pyongyang threatened to fire ballistic missiles at it.

Lord Alton from the All-Party Parliamentary Group for North Korea says we’re in a game of dangerous brinkmanship.
