PARIS (Reuters) – France’s Emmanuel Macron discussed increased pressure and sanctions on North Korea on the telephone with U.S President Donald Trump and Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, the French president’s office said on Saturday. The three leaders stressed the need for a “united and firm” reaction from the international community towards Pyongyang, Macron’s office said. South Korea was bracing on Saturday for a possible further missile test by North Korea as it marked its founding anniversary, just days after its sixth and largest nuclear test rattled global financial markets and further escalated tensions in the region.
