"The entire civilized world must unite to confront the North Korean menace. And the entire world is watching us right now. Today President Xi, we discussed our mutual commitment to the complete denuclearization of North Korea."

"We agreed not to replicate failed approaches of the past and there were many. We agreed on the need to fully implement all the UN Security Council resolutions, on North Korea and to increase economic pressure until North Korea abandons its reckless and dangerous power. All responsible nations must join together to stop arming and financing. And even trading with the murderous North Korean regime."

"Regarding the Korean Peninsula nuclear issue, we reaffirmed that we are staunchly committed to realizing the denuclearization of the peninsula and upholding the international nuclear non-proliferation system. Both sides will continue to strictly enact all U.N. Security Council resolutions and at the same time we are committed to continuing to solve the North Korean nuclear issue through dialogue and talks."
 
While thanking Xi for his efforts to restrict trade with Pyongyang, Trump during the talks stressed that China must act faster and more effectively on the North Korean nuclear problem than anyone.  
 
Xi insisted the two countries want to see "enduring stability" on the Korea Peninsula and added that China intends to "fully implement UN Security Council resolutions."
 
While Xi said China was committed to the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula, he also insisted that dialogue was needed to resolve the crisis.
