Russian Federation and China called for restraint on North Korea after US President Donald Trump warned over the weekend that "only one thing will work" in dealing with Pyongyang, hinting that military action was on his mind.

Trump tweeted Saturday that agreements and negotiations have only made fools of US negotiators. And on Saturday, he insisted "only one thing will work" to solve the North Korean nuclear impasse.

"For nearly 30 years, through numerous administrations, if you look at President Clinton, paid billions of dollars, gave them billions more", Trump said on the Trinity Broadcasting Network's "Huckabee".

While the United Nations passed a new round of sanctions against North Korea with the hope that Kim will decide the cost of nuclear weapons is too steep, Trump's apocalyptic threats are a constant reminder that those weapons may provide the only effective deterrent against invasion.

Earlier this week, during a meeting with top USA military leaders and their spouses, Trump told reporters it was the "calm before the storm".

When Conspiracy Talk News asked him on Saturday about the cryptic tweet, Trump replied: "You'll figure that out pretty soon".

Trump, who made the comment to reporters at the White House, did not elaborate.

Trump says years of talking to the North and providing aid haven't worked. "Just a total mess". Trump remarked last week that the current period may be the calm before the storm, raising speculation of possible military action against Pyongyang. Although Kim made the comments Saturday they were reported hours after Trump's "only one thing will work" tweet. Donald Trump also added that the United States will not hold back force if needed to halt the missile and nuclear tests by North Korea. He noted that North Korea and the USA government have open lines of communication. "Maybe now, nearly more than any other time, we need a great military".
