THAAD expected to create much more sophisticated defense network: Defense Ministry

THAAD expected to create much more sophisticated defense network: Defense Ministryā€¯

He also said it was "ridiculous" that the United States first slapped Russian Federation with sanctions carried in the same bill that penalised North Korea, and "then asked us to help impose sanctions on North Korea".

The statement says both leaders stressed that the global community has condemned North Korea's "provocations".

Meanwhile, the United States accused North Korea's trading partners on Monday of aiding its nuclear ambitions and said Pyongyang was "begging for war" after the North's powerful nuclear test on Sunday and signs that further missile launches were on the way.

"Pyongyang's missile and nuclear programme is a crude violation of UN Security Council resolutions, undermines the non-proliferation regime and creates a threat to the security of northeastern Asia", Putin said at a joint news conference.

Putin said he believed President Donald Trump's administration is willing to defuse tensions over North's nuclear ambitions.

US Ambassador Nikki Haley said the United States would be seeking a vote at the council on new sanctions on September 11.

They urged more efforts to pressure North Korea to abandon what they called its "current threatening and destabilizing path". In March 2016, he told the New York Times he wanted South Korea to build its own nuclear weapons so it didn't have to rely so much on the United States.

Trump is to speak Wednesday with China's president.

But Trump bluntly said he didn't think Moon is tough enough to push back on North Korea, claiming he was actually appeasing Pyongyang.

China objects to both the military drills and the deployment in South Korea of an advanced USA missile defense system that has a radar that can see deep into Chinese territory.

Weapons of mass destruction will not be used to resolve the North Korea issue and the conflict will not expand, Russian president said answering questions by participants in the Eastern Economic Forum. Sunday's test of what North Korea said was an advanced hydrogen bomb was its largest by far.

North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un is known to be chafing under the relationship he has with the PRC which, he feels, neither respects him nor North Korea, and only supports Pyongyang in order to keep it away from possible reunification with South Korea and to keep external powers (the U.S.) from gaining a foothold, again, close to the Yalu River border between North Korea and the PRC.

"We are not looking to the total annihilation of a country, namely North Korea", US Defence Secretary Jim Mattis said after meeting Mr Trump and his national security team.

But Putin made clear that Russian Federation was opposed to further interdictions, and while China - North Korea's patron and closest political and economic partner - has yet to be drawn on the issue, it tends to resist placing pressure on Pyongyang.

South Korea's defence ministry said it was already strengthening its defences, in part by deploying more US-made Terminal High-Altitude Area Defence (THAAD) missile launchers. "But I can tell you North Korea is behaving badly and it's got to stop", he said.

The bid for the toughest penalties yet against North Korea comes despite renewed warnings against such moves by the leaders of China and Russian Federation, which have veto power in the Security Council.

The Army's 718th Explosive Ordnance Disposal Company (EOD) in South Korea should be taught to be able to identify hazardous materials, "know how to perform basic control, containment and/or confinement operations", as well as to be able implement decontamination procedures, according to the contract proposal which the Army posted on the Federal Business Opportunities website.
