Trump In Beijing: Must Unite To Confront North Korean "Menace," Stop "Radical Islamic Terrorism"

President Trump held a joint news conference with Chinese President Xi in Beijing on Thursday. <blockquote>PRESIDENT TRUMP: I want to congratulate you on the recent and very successful 19th Party Congress. Perhaps now more than ever we have an opportunity to strengthen the relationship between our two countries and improve the lives of our citizens. As long as we stand together with others if necessary, against those who threaten our civilization, that threat will never happen. It doesn't even have a chance. As I said <a href="">in my address yesterday in Seoul</a>, 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 U.N. Security Council resolutions on North Korea and to increase economic pressure until North Korea abandons its reckless and dangerous path. All responsible nations must join together to stop arming and financing, and even trading with the murderous North Korean regime. Together, we have, in our power, to finally liberate this region, and the world, from this very serious nuclear business. But it will require collective action, collective strength, and collective devotion to winning the peace. In order to create a more secure future for all and to protect our citizens from extremism and terrorism, President Xi and I also committed to working toward a peaceful future for Afghanistan. Terrorists are a threat to all of humanity, and we will stop radical Islamic terrorism.</blockquote>
