US Calls for UN Security Council Vote on North Korea on Monday

U.S. President Donald Trump, trailed by Secretary of State Rex Tillerson arrives to speak to reporters after their meeting at Trump's golf estate in Bedminster New Jersey

Putin denounced North Korea's sixth and largest nuclear bomb test on Sunday, saying Russian Federation did not recognize its nuclear status.

The comments came after a top North Korea's ambassador to the UN, Han Tae Song, warned his country is ready to send "more gift packages" to the US.

"Trade turnover between Russia and the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) is minimal, so it is hardly advisable to talk about the cessation of Russian oil products to it", Russian presidential press secretary Dmitry Peskov said, adding that President Putin has repeatedly stated that the supply of oil and oil products to North Korea is negligible. "I hope the joint actions on the part of Japan and Russian Federation and the entire world community, including a still tougher resolution of the UN Security Council, and utmost pressure on North Korea will bring about changes in its policies".

Moscow, Mr. Putin is signalling, would prefer to live with a new nuclear-armed neighbour than watch chaos erupt in the small, distant corner where Russian Federation shares a border with North Korea. "It doesn't seem much time is left before North Korea achieves its complete nuclear armament", the prime minister told a meeting of defense ministers in Seoul Thursday.

Redeploying the weapons to South Korea wouldn't dramatically change the strategic balance, as the USA has nuclear assets on submarines that can operate off North Korea's coast.

Dozens of people were injured in clashes between South Korean protesters and police Thursday as the USA military added more launchers to the high-tech missile-defense system it installed in a southern town to better cope with North Korean threats. But Putin also emphasized, "To begin with, it is necessary to. develop a dialogue between the interested parties".

"We must now adopt the strongest possible measures", Nikki Haley, the USA ambassador to the United Nations, said earlier this week. It knows the power to reward Russian Federation by lifting sanctions now lies with a hostile US Congress.

Abe will meet Putin on Thursday.

Prime Minister Shinzo Abe failed to convince Russian President Vladimir Putin to share Japan's grave concerns over North Korea's provocative acts as the two leaders met on September 7. Despite this, Putin stuck firmly to his position.

Putin however reiterated that pressure on the Stalinist regime in Pyongyang would not work.

"But the next step, they think, is an invitation to the cemetery".

Kang Myung-do defected from North Korea in the mid-1990s.

"While Moon is not having his way with North Korea, that won't immediately bring his approval rate down", Prof Lee said.

Mattis and South Korean Defense Minister Song Young-moo spoke on Tuesday, and the U.S. Defense Department said in a statement Wednesday that Mattis made clear that any threat to the U.S. and its allies would be met "with a massive, effective and overwhelming military response".

Putin says he believes President Donald Trump's administration is willing to defuse tensions over North Korea's nuclear ambitions.
