It said the United States was ready "along with its allies, to apply the full range of diplomatic, economic and military measures" to end any nuclear threat from the North.

As the crisis has unfolded, Trump has alternated praising China for its help and chiding it for not doing more.

"Trump looks forward to seeing Xi in China later this year, a meeting that will be a very historic event. This is tragicomedy of its own making".

The comments came after Trump unleashed a slew of fresh threats against North Korea on Friday, declaring the USA military "locked and loaded".

The statement came just hours after Chinese leader Xi Jinping urged Trump in a separate phone call to avoid rhetoric that could inflame tensions with Pyongyang.

China Central Television on Saturday cited Xi as saying that Beijing and Washington are both interested in the denuclearization of the peninsula. It said Wednesday that plans for a strike near the island would be complete by mid-August.
