China wants both balanced trade with the United States and lasting peace on the Korean peninsula, its official Xinhua news agency added in a commentary.
On Monday, Trump expressed confidence the US would handle the situation.
"(The Chinese) control more than 80 percent of the imports into North Korea so that is a very important lever they could exercise", said Gorka.
