WASHINGTON - President Donald Trump will use his trip to Asia to emphasize that North Korea's pursuit of nuclear weapons is a "dead end" and to urge countries with influence over Pyongyang to pressure it to denuclearize, the White House said on Thursday.

"The president recognizes that we're running out of time (to deal with North Korea) and will ask all nations to do more," national security adviser H.R. McMaster told a briefing. He said Trump would urge countries with the most influence over Pyongyang to "convince its leaders that the pursuit of nuclear weapons is a dead end and it is past time to denuclearize."
