Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON (AP) - The Latest on the United States and North Korea (all times local):
    
1:07 p.m.
    
President Donald Trump says neither he nor China's leader will put up with North Korea's provocative actions.
    
Trump commented Wednesday after speaking by telephone earlier in the day with Chinese President Xi Jinping (shee jihn-peeng).
    
Trump says Xi doesn't want to see what's happening in North Korea and that Xi "agrees with me 100 percent." North Korea conducted another nuclear test over the weekend.
    
When asked whether he would take military action against North Korea, Trump said military action is "not our first choice," adding: "We will see what happens."
    
In a conversation Tuesday with Britain's Prime Minister, the White House says Trump stressed that "now is not the time to talk to North Korea" and that "all options remain open" to defend the U.S. and its allies.
