11 September, 2017, 06:59
President Donald Trump continues to see the denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula as the priority in how it responds to North Korea's latest nuclear weapons test, the White House says.
"We are absolutely one mind in condemning his reckless conduct", Mr Turnbull said. "'We discussed the importance of the full enforcement of the current sanctions regime and the importance of additional sanctions which, of course, are under consideration at the moment, being imposed in the future.' He says both Australia and the United States 'will continue to encourage China to bring more economic pressure to bear on North Korea to bring this regime to its senses".
North Korean leader Kim Jong Un's aggressive pursuit of a nuclear missile program, including the claim of a recent hydrogen bomb test, has been condemned by leaders across the world.

Mr Turnbull and Mr Trump agreed China is the country with the greatest leverage over North Korea and with that leverage comes the greatest responsibility.
Mr Trump is to speak on Wednesday with China's president.
