Trump: China can solve N. Korea issue if it wants

United States President Donald Trump tweeted on Friday: "China is very much the economic lifeline to North Korea so, while nothing is easy, if they want to solve the North Korean problem, they will"

On Thursday, the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) strongly condemned North Korea's latest missile test and threatened the country with sanctions if it continues with its missile launches. 

North Korea has stated it is ready to go to war in case it is pre-emptively attacked by the US, while Trump expressed confidence China will "properly deal" with the issue of North Korea and claimed the US will handle the "problem" in case China fails to do so.
