China's Xi urges France to help restart talks on North Korea

China's Xi urges France to help restart talks on North Korea”

South Korea said Wednesday that it is closely monitoring possible radiation traces from North Korea's latest nuclear test, as a post-test tremor occurred due to a collapse in an underground tunnel at the test site. "Their attacks against self-defensive measures to strengthen the DPRK's nuclear deterrent forces - they are clearly at variance with the objective and nature of our forum, where economic cooperation between the Russian Far East and Asian countries is discussed", the minister said.

The Russian president, who was in China for a summit of leading emerging economies, told reporters that he had remarked to one of his counterparts at the talks that North Korea "will eat grass but will not give up the (nuclear) program, if they don't feel safe".

He described the bombastic rhetoric being traded between Washington and Pyongyang in recent weeks as "military hysteria".

Earlier in the day, Russian President Vladimir Putin said that it is necessary to involve North Korea in economic cooperation, and Russia has ideas to offer - "a joint road linking the Trans-Siberian Railway and the Korean railways through North Korea, pipeline transport, development of North Korean ports". "It could cause a global catastrophe and an enormous loss of life".

U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley told an emergency U.N. Security Council meeting Monday that the United States wants a new U.N. resolution with tougher sanctions adopted by September 11.

Putin said that given the North Korean leadership's determination to acquire weapons of mass destruction, he doubted whether sanctions would have any deterrent effect.

"I am not his bride, nor his groom", Putin said when asked whether he was disappointed with Trump Tuesday on the sidelines of the 2017 summit held in the southeastern Chinese coastal city of Xiamen.

Experts believe the isolated regime is close to its goal of developing a powerful nuclear weapon capable of reaching the United States, something U.S. President Donald Trump has vowed to prevent.

Putin called the seizure of the compounds "an obvious violation of property rights".

"The U.S. will receive more "gift packages".as long as it relies on reckless provocations and futile attempts to put pressure on the DPRK", he said without elaborating.
