US President Donald Trump says he hopes to get more assistance from Russia in preventing North Korea from developing its nuclear program.

“China is helping, Russia is not helping,” Trump told reporters outside the White House. “We would like to have Russia’s help.”

In a phone conversation on Thursday, Trump and his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin discussed ways to collaborate in order to resolve the North Korean threat.
