British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson on Saturday (Aug 12) blamed North Korea for the stand-off with the United States and said London wants a diplomatic end to the crisis.

One of President Trump's most famous critics came to his defense this week after a vow of "fire and fury" for North Korea: former Vice President Al Gore.

"The two presidents agreed to remain in contact over the coming days", it added.

Tensions between the USA and North Korea have risen to their highest point of Trump's presidency in recent days.

Macron had joined a chorus of worldwide voices urging restraint in the crisis, which has alarmed the global community as Trump has engaged in days of verbal sparring with Pyongyang.

In a statement Saturday, Macron said the situation "undermines the preservation of worldwide peace" and the North Korean regime "poses a serious threat to the security of its neighbors".

During an appearance at the Netroots Nation conference in Atlanta Friday, Ellison addressed the recent exchange of inflammatory rhetoric between Trump and North Korea, saying North Korean leader Kim Jong Un was acting more responsibly than the USA president.

Pentagon officials told Fox News on Friday that the U.S. military stands ready to "fight tonight" on the Korean Peninsula, as President Trump said the U.S.is "locked and loaded" and retweeted images from U.S. Pacific Command showing B-1B Lancer bombers on Guam.

State-run China Central Television quoted Mr Xi as telling the president that the "relevant parties must maintain restraint and avoid words and deeds that would exacerbate the tension on the Korean Peninsula".
