In response to U.S. President Donald Trump's tough rhetoric, North Korea said on Thursday it was finalising plans to fire four intermediate-range missiles that would land 30-40 km (18-25 miles) from Guam.
The White House said Mr Xi and Mr Trump "reiterated their mutual commitment to denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula" and stressed their "extremely close relationship".
He doubled down on the near-apocalyptic rhetoric two days later, responding to a question about his remarks by saying, "Maybe it wasn't tough enough". "Such threats, of "fire and fury...the likes of which the world has never seen" by President Donald J. Trump, and "all-out war wiping out all the strongholds of enemies, including the U.S. mainland" by spokespersons of Supreme Leader Kim Jong-un, only serve to bring our countries, and the world, to the brink of war.
He does something in Guam, it will be an event the likes of which nobody's seen before, what will happen in North Korea", Trump said, without offering specifics. "She's certainly not referring to the United States". And he's not going to threaten South Korea. North Korea shot back on Friday by suggesting the new president spends too much time playing golf.
He added: 'But I am always quick to shutter up whenever we get typhoon advisories or tsunami warnings.
North Korea has announced a detailed plan to launch a salvo of ballistic missiles into the seas around the US Pacific territory of Guam, a major military hub and home to US bombers. But he says that, until that happens, the United States "will be the most powerful nuclear nation on earth, by far".
On Twitter, he said the military was "locked and loaded" if North Korea carried out its threat.

Trump said the U.S. Trump's language was swiftly criticized by politicians on both sides to the aisle. Sen. And, a U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency report cited the broader U.S. intelligence community's analysis that North Korea has a miniaturized nuclear weapon that could fit on a rocket.
Immediately, move more THAAD interceptors to South Korea, more Aegis anti-missile ships around North Korea and in the Gulf of Mexico, strengthening USA missile defenses. Trump has grown frustrated with North Korea's autocratic leader Kim Jong-un for his repeated nuclear threats against the USA, telling reporters at his Bedminster, N.J. golf club Thursday that if the provocations continue "they will be met with fire, fury and frankly power the likes of which this world has never seen before".
"Fight tonight" has long been the motto of USA forces in South Korea to show they are always ready for combat on the Korean Peninsula.
Trump also said new sanctions on North Korea approved by the U.N. Security Council on August 5 that could slash by a third the country's $3 billion annual export revenue probably would not be as effective as hoped.
Ganyard said that any such action would be viewed as an "act of war, even if [Kim] doesn't hit it ... even if he shoots at it".
"At present, still I'm not sure the capability is there", Snyder said.
Other critics of Trump's foreign policy point out that there is no certain time frame for such an effort and remind us that China has emphatically resisted reunification. "Please say hello to the people of Guam".
Some aides were surprised when Trump declared Tuesday, soon after word spread that North Korea had made a nuclear breakthrough, that the isolated nation would face "fire and fury" if the threat continued. There is currently no U.S. Navy aircraft carrier strike group or Marine Corps Expeditionary Unit off the Korean Peninsula right now.
