Russia, Japan 'decisively condemn' North Korea missile launch - Putin

Putin warns of global catastrophe over proposed sanctions on N’Korea Putin: Russia reserves right to further cut US diplomatic mission

Also speaking in Vladivostok, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe reiterated a call for the world to put the "greatest possible pressure" on North Korea to fulfil its United Nations obligations and freeze its weapons programs.

In addition, US President Donald Trump, along with the South Korean Prime Minister, Moon and the Japanese prime minister, Shinzo Abe, are working towards an oil embargo against the North - a move outrightly opposed by China and Russian Federation.

Amid escalating tensions in the Korean Peninsula today, South Korean President Moon Jae-in asked for his Russian counterpart's cooperation in urging the worldwide community to cut off crude oil supplies to the North Korean regime.

Putin however reiterated that pressure on the Stalinist regime in Pyongyang would not work.

First on the itinerary for the four-months-old South Korean president: An exclusive one-on-one with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Putin's spokesman Dmitry Peskov was not immediately available for comment.

"Without political and diplomatic tools, it is absolutely impossible to make headway in the current North Korea situation".

"Today, as never before, everyone needs to show composure and avoid steps that lead to an escalation of tensions", he said.

(Russian) "Pressure and sanctions alone can not solve the situation on the Korean peninsula".

Speaking on the sidelines of an economic forum in the Russian port city of Vladivostok, Putin said on September 7 that Pyongyang would not end its nuclear and missile programs because it views them as its only means for self-defense.

"I and President Putin also agreed that the missile development pursued by North Korea is a wrong path and it is an urgent task to ease tension on the Korean peninsula", he told reporters.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has called for talks with North Korea, saying sanctions are not a solution. He said the U.S. would fulfill its warnings if the UN Security Council failed to agree on additional sanctions when it meets next Monday.
