Putin warns crisis with North Korea 'may become a global catastrophe'

Putin warns crisis with North Korea 'may become a global catastrophe'”

"If we fail to stop North Korea's provocations now, it could sink into an uncontrollable situation", Mr Moon said in opening remarks before a meeting with Mr Putin in Vladivostok, Russia, on Wednesday.

Russian President Vladimir Putin looks on during the BRICS summit in China.

"The delivery of weapons to a conflict zone doesn't help peacekeeping efforts, but only worsens the situation", Putin said Tuesday.

"The only thing is that it was done in such a clearly boorish manner. This does not do reflect well on our American partners", he said.

"It is hard to hold a dialogue with people who mix Austria with Australia", he continued, apparently referring to a decade-old gaffe by President George W. Bush, who during a 2007 visit to Sydney referred to Austrian troops when he meant Australian troops. Nothing can be done about it. "Apparently, this is the level of political culture within a certain part of the USA establishment".

"As for the buildings and facilities (of the Russian diplomatic mission in the US), this is really an unprecedented incident", Putin said. "I think to start with, we should go to court and we should go see how effectively (the) American court system works".

"I want to also highlight that it's our hope that with this move in the direction of parity, which the Russians said they were seeking, we can avoid further retaliatory actions by both sides". Putin also spoke favourably of Trump. That has largely been derailed by allegations about Russia's meddling in the 2016 presidential election. Russian Federation has denied interfering in the vote.

"We are both statesmen". "It will only severely undermine the strategic balance in the region, jeopardize strategic and security interests of the regional countries, including China, aggravate the tension and confrontation, and further complicate the Peninsular issue".

North Korea has long maintained its status of wanting nuclear weapons and long-range missiles in order to discourage the United States from attempting to overthrow Kim Jong Un's regime. While the Kremlin had ordered the U.S.to cut its embassy staff numbers to 455 to achieve parity, Russian Federation "reserves the right" to demand further reductions, he said.

When announcing the decision to close the USA sites, a State Department spokesman noted "Russia will still maintain more diplomatic and consular annexes in the United States than we have in Russian Federation".

Putin was not happy with the "boorish manner" in which Russian Federation was stripped of diplomatic property in the US.

Ukraine's envoy to the United Nations, Volodymyr Yelchenko, told the Security Council that Ukraine's president made a similar proposal to deploy U.N. peacekeepers in March 2015.

Putin apparently came up with the 155 figure because he said that 155 of Russia's staff in the United States were "not really diplomats" but part of its UN mission in NY. So, we reserve the right to make a decision also on the number of United States diplomats, but we won't do this now. But we won't do that for now.
