WASHINGTON (AP) - President Donald Trump is seeking continued help from China's president in addressing the threat posed by North Korea's nuclear developments.
 
The White House says that Trump - in a phone call Friday to President Xi Jinping - saluted Xi for China's U.N. vote to impose tougher sanctions on North Korea.
 
The two leaders also reiterated a commitment to the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.
 
As the crisis has unfolded, Trump has alternated praising China for its help and chiding it for not doing more.
 
The White House says Trump also told Xi he looked forward to seeing him in China later this year.
