Abe, Moon aim for UNSC resolution

Vladimir Putin Vladimir Putin

Following North Korea's Sunday detonation of what it claimed to be a hydrogen bomb, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and Moon met in Russia Thursday to reiterate their call for an oil embargo against Pyongyang and other economic sanctions to reign in the communist nation's provocations.

North Korea's main ally, China, has condemned Pyongyang's nuclear tests, as has Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Just this week, UN Ambassador Nikki Haley called for "the strongest sanctions" to pressure North Korea into giving up nukes "before it's too late".

Putin echoed other world leaders in denouncing North Korea's latest nuclear bomb test on Sunday, saying Russian Federation did not recognise its nuclear status. Delegations from Russian Federation, the PRC, the DPRK, ROK, Mongolia, and Vietnam participated in the Eastern Economic Forum, along with global private investors.

"It's hard to deal with people who confuse Austria and Australia, but there's nothing you can do about this", he said, probably referring generally to Washington foreign policy circles, though the original gaffe is attributed to former President George W. Bush.

South Korea and the United States are technically still at war with North Korea after the 1950-53 Korean conflict ended with a truce, not a peace treaty.

The South Korean presidential spokesman quoted Putin as saying that Russian Federation was concerned that the blockage of oil supplies would hurt civilians including hospitals.

The drill meant to simulate a strike on North Korea's Pyunggye-ri nuclear test site involved the Hyunmoo ballistic missile system and F-15K fighter jets, reports Yonhap News Agency.

He has also publicly weighed scrapping a United States trade deal with South Korea in a bid to fulfill promises he made during the election campaign, and threatened to make South Korea pay for THAAD, even though it was Washington pushing for the system's deployment. A senior administration official later told reporters that the USA won't let North Korea extort or threaten the world with its nuclear program, and that the administration isn't sure the country could be deterred.

Geng called for South Korea and the USA to "immediately stop the deployment process" and remove the equipment or risk exacerbating tensions on the peninsula.

Local newspaper Kukmin Ilbo reported Wednesday a total of six civic groups opposing THAAD have gathered, and the usual force of 200 conscripted police have been replaced by 360 regular police officers. Two launchers have been operational at the site since May. Seoul's Defense Ministry has said the USA military will begin installing the additional launchers Thursday.

The official said Moon, who took office in May, responded to Abe's request by repeating South Korea's stance on the matter.

South Korean defence ministry officials estimated its strength at 50 kilotons - five times the size of the North's previous nuclear test.

More importantly, President Moon emphasized that Northeast Asian countries working together to successfully develop Russia's Far East region may be a way to fundamentally resolve the North Korea nuclear issue, as it may bring the regime into more economic participation with other countries.

The system's powerful radar and two launchers had already been deployed, infuriating Beijing, which fears it could compromise its own missile capabilities.
