WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump urged a resolution to the Qatar diplomatic crisis in a telephone call on Wednesday with Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi in which they also discussed the threat from North Korea, the White House said.

Trump reiterated the need for all countries “to stop terrorist financing and discredit extremist ideology,” the White House said in a statement.

Trump also brought up the North Korea nuclear threat in the call, the White House said, and “stressed the need for all countries to fully implement U.N. Security Council resolutions on North Korea, stop hosting North Korean guest workers, and stop providing economic or military benefits to North Korea.”
