TRUMP TELLS XI SOMETHING HAS TO BE DONE ON N. KOREA

US President Donald Trump told Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping on Saturday that "something has to be done" on North Korea, as they held talks at the G20 summit in Germany.

President Donald Trump says he told the Chinese president that "something has to be done" about North Korea.

Trump and President Xi Jinping met Saturday in Hamburg, Germany, days after Trump tweeted about his frustration over China's inaction.

Trump told Xi "I appreciate the things that you have done" with North Korea. North Korea's latest missile launch has prompted global calls for action.

The U.S. recently blacklisted one Chinese bank accused of illicit dealings with North Korea and is penalizing a Chinese shipping company and two Chinese individuals accused of facilitating illegal activities by the North.

Trump says he also discussed "trade and trade imbalances" with Xi and aims to reach an arrangement that is more "equitable" and "reciprocal."
