Trump and Macron spoke over phone and discussed the need to confront the increasingly unsafe situation regarding North Korea's destabilising and escalatory behaviour, the White House said.

France is a member of the Security Council, which approved fresh sanctions on North Korea this month for its recent intercontinental ballistic missile testing.

Rep. David Cicilline urged Speaker Paul Ryan on Friday to call back the House from its August recess in order to debate legislation that would require congressional approval for a US pre-emptive strike.

Ansari also condoled the deaths of children in BRD Medical College in Gorakhpur and said that this incident has brought "shame" to the nation.

A number of Trump administration officials, including the president himself, have publicly commented on the recent threats made by North Korea, including a proposed strike on the waters off Guam, a USA territory in the western Pacific.

Trump dialed up the rhetoric early Friday, tweeting that the US military is "locked and loaded, should North Korea act unwisely".

Abe says: "I will do everything, to the best of my ability, to protect the safety and property of the Japanese people".

Asked Friday if the USA was going to war, he said cryptically, "I think you know the answer to that". He dismissed criticism directed at his rhetoric, saying the only reason is "because it's me". "I think the president was doing this as a means to get people's attention, including the Chinese", he added. "Our foolish past leaders have allowed them to make hundreds of billions of dollars a year in trade, yet they do NOTHING for us with North Korea, just talk", he wrote on Twitter in July.

French President Emmanuel Macron has called on all sides in the North Korean nuclear crisis to act responsibly "to prevent any escalation of tensions" after a days-long war of words between Washington and Pyongyang.

The White House said the "relationship between the two presidents is an extremely close one, and will hopefully lead to a peaceful resolution of the North Korea problem".
