U.S. President Donald Trump and UK Prime Minister Theresa May supported international pressure on North Korea during a phone conversation on Tuesday.
They agreed that “all responsible nations must increase pressure on North Korea until it turns to the path of denuclearization,” the White House said.
The tension over situation in the Korean Peninsula escalated in 2017, after North Korea launched a series of missiles and a nuclear test. In December, the United Nations Security Council adopted new international sanctions against North Korea. The resolution, positively assessed by all UN member states, calls for deportation of North Korean labor migrants, but not later than the end of 2019.
