Putin Warns of North Korea Threat But Criticizes Sanctions

Russian President Vladimir Putin's comments, following an worldwide summit in China, came after the United States called for the "strongest possible measures" against North Korea for detonating what it called a hydrogen bomb on Sunday.

Putin said Russian Federation was "ready to discuss" and "work in solidarity" with the global community to resolve North Korea's isolation. Putin clarified that additional sanctions against Pyongyang will be "ineffective and without influence" and warned that the military build-up on both sides of the border will escalate matters.

Putin added that efforts to denuclearize the Korean Peninsula would be a futile effort, as North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has learned the lessons of previous dictators.

"They will eat grass, but will not stop their [nuclear] program until they guarantee safety for themselves", the president said, describing Pyongyang's resolve.

North Korea claims it now has the capability of mounting a thermonuclear weapon on a long-range missile capable of striking the United States.

President Vladimir Putin said on Monday that even though North Korea possess a nuclear arsenal, sanctions against Pyongyang are useless. Everyone knows that and everyone in North Korea knows that. "This may end up in a global catastrophe and huge amount of human life lost", the Russian leader said Tuesday.
