Japan PM warns N.Korea against continuing nuclear programme

Japan PM warns N.Korea against continuing nuclear programme

US Ambassador Nikki Haley told the UN Security Council that Washington would present a new sanctions resolution to be negotiated in the coming days, but Russian President Vladimir Putin on Tuesday rejected US calls for more sanctions as "useless".

"We will not be putting up with what's happening in North Korea". "Our policies are designed precisely to provoke the outcome we're trying to avoid".

The leaders of South Korea and Japan have repeated their calls for stronger action to punish North Korea over its recent nuclear tests.

Meanwhile, Admiral Scott Swift, the commander of the U.S. Pacific Fleet, claimed this week that America's North Korean strategy of sanctions and diplomacy has worked so far.

Third, and this addresses the pieces of the puzzle that we have not seen, I believe that North Korea has the technical capability and has had the time necessary to make a nuclear weapon small enough to fit on a long-range missile and to ensure that the warhead can survive the vibrations, pressures and heat of reentry. "China will promote denuclearization and the maintenance of stability on the peninsula, and promote solving problems on the peninsula through dialogue and consultation".

The remark was a clear rejection of Moon's requests.

But Putin - whose country enjoys relatively warm relations with Pyongyang rooted in a Soviet-era alliance - insists further sanctions and threats are "useless" against a regime that feels cornered.

Second, in December 2012, North Korea successfully put a satellite in orbit with a rocket that, had it been a missile, could have ranged to at least Alaska and, if more work had been done, could have hit the continental United States. For now, in public opinion, they're supportive of Moon's tougher stance. Abe is due to meet Putin separately later in the day.

"Is it right to say that we want to be protected by U.S. nuclear weapons but we don't want them on our soil?" asked the former minister, while acknowledging it was an "emotional" issue in pacifist Japan, still scarred by the obliteration of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in World War II.

Moscow exports about 40,000 tons of oil to Pyonyang, a tiny percentage of Russia's overall trade, Putin said, according to Yoon.

Russian Federation has played a much more visible role in the North Korea crisis since the nuclear test.

But China is unlikely to completely cut off crude and refined oil supplies to its troublesome ally.

The issue of South Koreans seeking compensation for forced labor during Japan's 1910-1945 colonial rule of the Korean Peninsula also remains a thorny agenda item between the two neighbors.

"Russia believes that the policy of putting pressure on Pyongyang to stop its nuclear missile program is misguided and futile", Putin wrote in a letter published on the Kremlin's website last week. They are generally hired in the logging and mining industries, receiving relatively high incomes. They have not officially ended because of the territorial dispute. While Moon's core base may feel differently, the public in general has shifted toward a more conservative view on pressuring North Korea, he said. He said it is impossible to say at this point how big the test bomb was, or which of many possible bomb designs was used. "I hope for further cooperation".

Trump agreed to support new weapons sales to South Korea and Japan. The 2009 test showed that North Korea could generate a nuclear yield from a device.

USFK officials were guarded about the estimated time of arrival. They continued on for another 90-minutes with officials to wrap up the summit.
