Korean leader asks Russian Federation to help stop N. Korean provocations

Korean leader asks Russian Federation to help stop N. Korean provocations”

Such a resolution would require consent by Russian Federation and China, veto-wielding members of the Security Council.

"And, like everyone else, we would like a bit more clarity around the intentions of United States and China, what actions it could take to get a diplomatic resolution".

Seoul estimated the blast's yield at 50 kilotons, more than three times the size of the bomb detonated over Hiroshima in 1945.

The US will table a new United Nations resolution shortly to toughen sanctions.

In October, Lee Yong Pil, a top North Korean official, told NBC News that "a preemptive nuclear strike is not something the USA has a monopoly on". China generally resists pressure on its unruly neighbor, and Putin - locked in his own showdown with Washington - appeared in no mood for compromise.

Russian President Vladimir Putin - accused of helping install Donald Trump as president of the U.S.by waging a cyberwar against Trump's campaign opponent, Hillary Clinton - has downplayed questions that he's grown frustrated with the current American leader. "This may end up in a global catastrophe and huge amount of human life lost", Putin told reporters during a visit to China.

In a conversation with Putin on Monday, Moon had said it was time for the United Nations to seriously consider blocking North Korea's foreign currency sources by cutting off crude oil supplies and banning its overseas labor.

Still, Chinese leaders worry about instability on the Korean Peninsula if Kim's regime collapses, which would eliminate a buffer between China and South Korea, a heavily armed US ally with American troops on its soil.

Since the Korean War, Beijing has avoided prodding North Korea to the point it might collapse, fearing a destabilizing economic blow and the possibility of the US military gaining influence on its border via a unified Korea.

Trump did not elaborate on what he had in mind, but the White House has said the president may approve the sale of "many billions of dollars´ worth of military weapons and equipment" to Seoul.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un's aggressive pursuit of a nuclear missile program, including the claim of a recent hydrogen bomb test, has been condemned by leaders across the world. "Apparently, this is the level of political culture within a certain part of the US establishment".

Mr Trump has told world leaders in a series of phone calls "all options are on the table" in terms of dealing with North Korea and China remains key to persuading the regime to stop its missile and nuclear tests.

Haley rejected the proposal as "insulting". "China said that some people stab others in the back under the name of sanctions".

But he called for dialogue and warned against other actions that could escalate the crisis.

But one power was certainly not toning down its language.
