Even after North Korea had carried out an ICBM test earlier this month U.S. President Donald Trump kept his tone soft when speaking about his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping some 2 weeks ago saying that Xi was a "great leader" but he could "do a little bit more" in regards to Pyongyang's continuing provocations.

"It is my assessment that China will not deter North Korea unless the United States exacts greater economic pressure on China", Schumer wrote to Trump, a Republican.

China, with which North Korea does the large majority of its trade, has repeatedly said it strictly follows United Nations resolutions on North Korea and has denounced unilateral USA sanctions as unhelpful.

Japan's Ambassador Koro Bessho, whose country is on the council, told reporters Tuesday that "there's been a lot of work" and discussion on the text.

The official said that while North Korea can now get a missile "off the ground", a lot of undetermined variables remain about guidance, reentry and the ability to hit a specific target. Trump has repeatedly urged China to rein in North Korea. The U.S. must send a clear message to China's government. Chinese trade with North Korea actually increased 37.4 percent in the first quarter of this year compared to the same period in 2016.

However, they added it is too soon to say what President Trump might decide.

China, however, says Washington and Pyongyang are the sole responsible players in de-escalating tensions and resuming denuclearization talks on the Korean peninsula. Washington has normally requested an emergency UN Security Council meeting following Pyongyang's nuclear and missile tests, but it appears to be taking a different course of action as USA ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley says Washington will not be requesting an emergency meeting of the council this time around.

But China can't solve the nuclear crisis on its own.

Abe told reporters after his conversation with Trump that repeated efforts by the global community to find a peaceful solution to the North Korean issue had yet to bear fruit in the face of Pyongyang's unilateral "escalation". One of the options is reported to be Washington's commitment to withdraw most of its troops from the Korean peninsula in the case that the North Korean regime collapses. "They aren't related. They should not be discussed together", Qian said.
