South Korea's Moon discusses "unpredictable" North Korea situation with Putin

North Korea nuclear test provocative – Putin

Putin and Moon met on the sidelines of an economic forum in Vladivostok on Russia's Pacific coast.

Moon, who came to power earlier this year advocating a policy of pursuing engagement with Pyongyang, has come under increasing pressure to take a harder line on North Korea.

The United States is now urging new and tougher U.N. sanctions, including a ban on all oil and natural gas exports to North Korea, in response to the nuclear test.

While Washington needs backing from allies, cooperation with traditional adversaries China and Russian Federation is more significant.

"We should not give in to emotions and push Pyongyang into a corner", Putin said after meeting the president of close USA ally, South Korea, in Russian Federation on Wednesday.

Last month, he sought to reassure North Korean leader Kim Jong Un that the United States does not want to oust him or invade his country.

The comments came just hours before the U.S. made a formal request for a UN Security Council vote on tough new sanctions against the repressive regime.

Though Russia is not a major supplier of oil to North Korea, President Putin said that he is opposed to an oil embargo on North Korea after his meeting with Moon Jae-in pointing that such an action would bring tremendous hardship for the ordinary people of North Korea and will hamper basis services including Hospitalization.

Mexico Intensifies Recovery Efforts After Earthquake and Hurricane
Government cargo planes arrived in Juchitan to deliver supplies while the military began distributing boxes of food to residents. The quake occurred near the point of collision between three tectonic plates, the Cocos, the Caribbean and the North American.

The North's nuclear test "flagrantly violates" global law, Putin said, but he urged talks and not more sanctions.

"China will make close communication with relevant parties with an objective, fair and responsible attitude", Wang said without commenting if China would agree to curb oil exports to North Korea.

North Korea's test on Sunday of a hydrogen bomb significantly raised those tensions.

In May, a group of Seongju residents submitted a petition to South Korea's Constitutional Court demanding an immediate halt to any further operations and deployment elements of THAAD in their country. Trump said the U.S.is considering all options to defend itself and allies.

Asian stocks tracked Wall Street's slide overnight to slip on Wednesday, while the dollar was on the defensive with tensions in the Korean peninsula showing few signs of abating.

President Donald Trump says neither he nor China's leader will put up with North Korea's provocative actions.

Japan upgraded its assessment of the North Korean test to 160 kilotons from 120 kilotons after the size of the natural disaster it generated was revised to 6.1.

"I wouldn't read too much into the absence of an assertion" that North Korea must renounce its nuclear weapons, said the official, who requested anonymity to discuss some aspects of the evolving USA policy toward North Korea.

Backed forces, Syrian Army advance on Islamic State territory in Syria
The IS-held corridor is already under considerable pressure from southward-pushing army units led by the Tiger Forces. The coalition said the line runs from Raqqa Province southeast along the Euphrates River towards Deir al-Zour.

South Korean officials said they continued to monitor for radioactive fallout from the test and for signs of preparations for more activity as they pushed for a stronger worldwide response.

But China's defence ministry on Wednesday said a recent Chinese military drill in seas adjacent to the Korean peninsula was a routine exercise that was not targeted at any country.

Kim would be added to a United Nations sanctions blacklist that would subject him to a global travel ban, along with four other senior North Korean officials, according to the draft.

China agreed on Thursday that the United Nations should take more action against North Korea after its latest nuclear test, while also pushing for dialogue to help resolve the stand-off.

However it remained unclear whether Beijing, the North's key ally, would be willing to back, or enforce, new sanctions at the UN Security Council, where it is a veto-wielding permanent member.

"It is not worth giving in to emotions and driving North Korea into a corner".

South Korea and the United States are technically still at war with North Korea after the 1950-53 Korean conflict ended with a truce, not a peace treaty.
