North Korea: EU mulling sanctions, South Korea, Japan coordinating more sanctions

North Korea Russian President Putin warns of ‘global catastrophe

Mr Moon, whose May election win ended nine years of conservative rule, had little choice but to shift focus after Mr Kim tested two intercontinental ballistic missiles, fired a rocket over Japan and detonated North Korea's most powerful nuclear device yet.

However Russian President Vladimir Putin said Pyongyang couldn't be intimidated and brushed off a renewed call for tighter sanctions by his South Korean counterpart Moon Jae-In as the three were in the Russian port city of Vladivostok for an economic forum.

North Korea says it detonated a hydrogen bomb in its sixth nuclear test on Sunday.

Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Geng Shuang also reiterated Beijing's opposition to South Korea's deployment of the US Terminal High-Altitude Area Defence System, also known as THAAD, which is meant to protect against North Korean missile attacks.

While in North Korea, which was marking the nation's founding anniversary Saturday, local media issued fresh calls for a nuclear arms buildup, in defiance of the mounting worldwide sanctions. He added, "North Korea is escalating an overt challenge to the peace, prosperity, law and order of the region and indeed the entire world".

"We too, are against North Korea developing its nuclear capabilities and condemn it, but it is worrying cutting the oil pipeline will harm the regular people, like in hospitals", Putin said, according to the South Korean presidential official.

Long-time friend and confidant, retired Archbishop Desmond Tutu, has also condemned Suu Kyi's mishandling of the crisis. He said they were hiding from the Myanmar military in the jungle, but it wasn't safe for them to return to their homes.

Putin and Abe held a bilateral meeting Thursday, after which both leaders reiterated their countries shared a common understanding of the threat that North Korea poses.

Following Pyongyang's test on Sunday, Abe spoke to Putin over the phone, and reminded him of the important role Russian Federation can play as a permanent member of the United Nations Security Council in reigning in North Korea.

North Korea says it needs its weapons to protect itself from USA aggression and regularly threatens to destroy the United States. But Putin also emphasized, "To begin with, it is necessary to. develop a dialogue between the interested parties".

U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley has dismissed the Russian-Chinese roadmap, saying the United States is "done talking about North Korea".

Geng told reporters that China had complained to the USA and South Korea and urged them to "take seriously the security concerns and interests of China and other regional countries".

Abe will meet Putin on Thursday.

China supports UN action on North Korea, also pushes for dialogue
North Korea appeared to carry out its sixth and most powerful test explosion of a nuclear bomb on Sunday. Any threat to the USA or its allies will be met with a massive military response, the official said.

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe called for exerting the highest possible pressure on North Korea to oblige the regime to let go its nuclear and ballistic program. Despite this, Putin stuck firmly to his position.

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

North Korea fired the ICBMs at highly lofted angles in July to reduce ranges and avoid other countries.

Putin said Russian Federation exported a negligible amount of oil to North Korea - about 40,000 tonnes a year, according to Yoon.

The U.S. keeps threatening to use military options.

Since the first nuclear experiment by North Korea, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and South Korea President Moon Jae-in supported the U.S. suggestion to impose an oil-ban. "Apparently, this is the level of political culture within a certain part of the USA establishment". Russian Federation should not stay on the sidelines of the issue.

The display up front is a 5.2-inch HD (720 x1280) IPS panel with quite thin side bezels although the chin and forehead remain. In terms of design , the Honor V9 Play rocks a metal unibody design with rounded edges which feels pretty sturdy.

As worrying as North Korea's nuclear advance is for America, the increasingly realistic threat of an atomic warhead striking a US city might be even more unnerving for South Korea and Japan.
