Putin urges North Korea talks, says sanctions not working

Putin urges North Korea talks, says sanctions not working”

The United Nations has "unequivocally" condemned the latest nuclear and missile tests by the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK), denouncing them as "profoundly destabilising for regional and global security".

Moon had urged Moscow to support stronger sanctions against North Korea, which conducted its sixth nuclear test on Sunday in what it claimed was a detonation of a thermonuclear weapon built for missiles capable of reaching the US mainland. He said UNSC must act to stop North Korea from continuing such actions and should put maximum pressure to change its policy.

Haley did not spell out what measures Washington was seeking, but diplomats said they could target oil supplies to North Korea - potentially dealing a major blow to the economy. He complimented Putin and the Russian government over what he said were a variety of efforts to find diplomatic solutions to the North Korean problem.

Russian President Vladimir Putin warned yesterday of a global catastrophe unless a diplomatic solution is reached over North Korea, but rejected United States calls for more sanctions as "useless", widening a split among major powers over how to rein in Pyongyang.

New sanctions could also seek to curb tourism to the country.

Moon added that the situation could become unpredictable if North Korea did not halt its provocative actions, according to a Russian translation of his comments in Korean to Putin.

China objects to both the military drills and the deployment in South Korea of an advanced US missile defence system that has a radar that can see deep into Chinese territory. The deployment of the Terminal High-Altitude Area Defense system has angered not only North Korea, but also China and Russian Federation, which see the system's powerful radars as a security threat. The secretary-general condemns the underground nuclear test announced by the DPRK. "China has not just influence but has numerous levers that are needed to change behavior in North Korea", Fallon told BBC radio.

Earlier, United Nations Under-Secretary-General for Political Affairs Jeffrey Feltman dubbed North Korea's nuclear tests as risky provocation and said that Pyongyang has undermined the worldwide non-proliferation efforts.
