Japan, South Korea push Putin over Pyongyang sanctions

Putin warns of global catastrophe over proposed sanctions on N’Korea

North Korea on Sunday detonated a hydrogen bomb that can be carried by an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM), North Korea's Central Television announced.

He said the United Nations should take "necessary measures", but added that sanctions and pressure should spur negotiation between the sides towards the goal of a peaceful solution on the Korean peninsula.

Merkel has spoken to leaders including Chinese President Xi Jinping and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe about North Korea this week.

Wang is taking a different approach, according to South Korean news service News 1.

China, meanwhile, has always been North Korea's main ally, but - like Russian Federation - has supported recent sanctions against Pyongyang in light of its ongoing missile tests.

Wang also said, "Any new actions taken by the worldwide community against the DPRK [Democratic People's Republic of Korea] should serve the goal of curbing the DPRK's nuclear and missile programs, while at the same time be conducive to restarting dialogue and consultation". Both the countries have been pushing for an alternative solution.

The Russian president said that imposing tougher sanctions on the regime of Kim Jong Un over its nuclear missile programme would not change the leadership in Pyongyang, but could lead to large-scale human suffering. He told reporters before his departure from Japan that "We must make North Korea understand there is no bright future for the country if it pursues the current path".

Still, Trump has signaled his frustration with China's failure - or unwillingness - to rein in North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, who has stepped up his country's nuclear and ballistic missile activity - leading to significant developments in the country's capabilities, leading U.S. officials to worry North Korea's ballistic missiles could now reach large swaths of the US.

"If we know... where the material comes from to build missiles, to build nuclear weapons, I think that we have to put those countries under economic pressure in order to stop this", he said.

US President Donald Trump has urged China, North Korea's biggest ally, to do more to reign in its neighbour.

He declined to say whether he'd accept a nuclear-armed North Korea that can be successfully deterred from using atomic weapons. China will not allow chaos and war on the Korean Peninsula, he said.

Moon said the leaders agreed that reducing regional tension and "quickly solving" the security challenges posed by North Korea's nuclear and missile program were critical.

But here's the catch: Two of the five countries with veto power in the U.N. Security Council are major trade partners with North Korea.

"With this hearing, we will examine additional steps to exert maximum pressure on North Korea", he said.

His stated willingness to unleash a nuclear holocaust against North Korea reveals an absolutely stunning disregard for humanity and for the future of the planet that disqualifies him from continuing as president of the United States as long as he holds this attitude.
