WASHINGTON (AP) — The White House says President Barack Obama and Chinese President Xi Jinping (shee jihn-peeng) agree that a planned ballistic missile test by North Korea would be another “provocative and destabilizing” action in violation of multiple U.N. Security Council resolutions.

North Korea recently announced plans for a rocket launch that could take place as early as next week.

It would follow the government’s announcement of a purported hydrogen bomb test last month.

Obama and Xi spoke by telephone Friday. The White House says they reaffirmed their refusal to accept a nuclear-armed North Korea, as well as to the “complete and verifiable” denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.
The leaders also emphasized the need for a united international response to North Korea’s actions, including through the U.N. Security Council.
