News Story: Trump very 'disappointed in China' for doing nothing to stop N. Korea's provocations

SEOUL, July 30 (Yonhap) -- U.S. President Donald Trump expressed frustration over what he believes is China's reluctance to rein in North Korea's increasing provocations on Saturday (U.S. time), after the regime's second launch of an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) in a month.

"I am very disappointed in China. Our foolish past leaders have allowed them to make hundreds of billions of dollars a year in trade, yet they do NOTHING for us with North Korea, just talk," he wrote on his Twitter account.

"We will no longer allow this to continue. China could easily solve this problem!" he said.

On Friday night, North Korea conducted its second test of an ICBM, which flew 998 kilometers before landing off the northwestern coast of Japan.
