China has fired back at Donald Trump over a tweet where he blamed the country for the situation with North Korea. 

Over the weekend, the country conducted an incontinental missile test which was hailed as a success by state media. 

The response from China and the US was one of condemnation, but Trump launched an attack on China on Twitter afterwards. 

He posted the following tweets: 

The country's Foreign Ministry released a statement to Reuters to stress the importance of working together to end the situation. 

The statement made clear all parties involved "should have a correct understanding" of this.
