Japan, South Korea Urge Putin to Impose Sanctions on Pyongyang

Hussein abandoned the production of weapons of mass destruction. In that call, the US leader agreed to scrap payload limits on South Korean missiles under a decades-old US-South Korean treaty, allowing Seoul to use more powerful conventional weapons, the White House said. "Probably such is the level of political culture of a certain part of the USA establishment".

Russian Federation is said to have accepted almost 30,000 North Korean workers to make up for a shortage in its workforce in its Far East region. "He's a spoiler, without question".

The Nuclear Safety and Security Commission (NSSC) said it had been conducting tests on land, air and water samples since shortly after the North Korean nuclear test on Sunday.

For the past year, Russian Federation and China have surprised observers with their willingness to co-operate with the United States on a set of progressively stricter sanctions, the latest of which cut off key sources of North Korean income through exports of minerals and seafood.

South Korea says it expects another North Korea intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) launch "on September 9", according to the country's Prime Minister Lee Nak-yon.

North Korea, pursuing its weapons programmes in defiance of global condemnation, fired an intermediate ballistic missile over Japan last week, prompting authorities to sound sirens and advise residents to take cover.

China is by far North Korea's biggest trading partner, accounting for 92% of two-way trade past year. "If we do use it on North Korea, it will be a very sad day for North Korea".

"He (Trump) is not my bride, and I am not his groom", Putin said, reports New York Times.

"It is not worth giving in to emotions and driving North Korea into a corner". Now he is pushing for a military overhaul to keep Kim Jong Un's regime at bay. "He sees him as a insane comical despot of a tiny country", he said.

On Tuesday, Putin warned of a global catastrophe unless a diplomatic solution was reached over North Korea, rejecting USA calls for more sanctions as "useless", widening the split between major powers over how to rein in Pyongyang.

"I am not sure at all that Russia's role in managing this crisis is meaningful".

Mr. Putin, too, has yet to propose anything unique. It knows the power to reward Russian Federation by lifting sanctions now lies with a hostile US Congress. What if North Korea, with the world's largest standing army, crosses into the South? "The other half is dialogue and negotiation", he said. "We are running our governments", Putin told a reporter at an economic summit in China.

Meanwhile, Sweden urged its citizens Friday to refrain from unnecessary trips to North Korea. North Koreans are also aware of it and remember it. "Certainly, the North Koreans will not forget it. Sanctions of any kind are useless and ineffective in this case".

Still, Chinese experts cautioned against prematurely concluding that North Korea's neighbours will block all forms of an oil embargo.

In his election campaign past year, Donald Trump chided Japan and South Korea for not contributing enough to their defences.
