Obama and Xi agreed to “narrow differences” between the world’s two major powers on the sidelines of the Nuclear Security Summit at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, DC, shortly after North Korea reportedly fired another ballistic missile off its east coast, the White House said.

According to White House, Both leaders committed… to strengthen coordination in addressing the shared threat presented by North Korea’s pursuit of nuclear weapons and ballistic missile systems.

The statement added, “Both leaders affirmed their commitment to achieving the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula and the full implementation of UN Security Council Resolution 2270,” which was passed on March 2 in response to a nuclear test North Korea conducted in January, followed by a missile test in February.

In January, North Korea detonated a nuclear device and a month later launched a long-range rocket, prompting the United States, China and other UN partners to implement sanctions.
