Shortly after Trump made his remarks to reporters at the White House on December 15, U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson called on Russian Federation and China to do more to pressure North Korea, and charged that Moscow continues to employ North Korean workers in "slave-like conditions". If true, that would contradict Trump's assertion that China is "helping" with the situation. "China's helping, Russian Federation is not helping". No, they have another military exercise, and North Korea responded by launching another missile.
Echoing Trump's own language, Putin also claimed that there was a "deep state" hidden in the US government that sought to undermine US-Russian relations. The phone conversation came after a request from the US, the Kremlin said in an emailed statement.

Later, US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson called for a "sustained cessation of North Korea's threatening behaviour" before talks could occur between Washington and Pyongyang. "The pressure campaign must and will continue until denuclearization is achieved". In response, the North Korean foreign ministry condemned the drills saying that the United States' campaign on demonizing North Korea was a step towards warfare while North Korea was pursuing "a legitimate and fair goal through reinforcing its nuclear means of deterrence".
"If the North Koreans conduct an additional test of a nuclear bomb - their seventh - I would say 70 per cent".
