Putin went on to say Pyongyang's course "will not change no matter how much influence we bring to bear on North Korea", adding that sanctions would "only create far greater suffering for millions of North Koreans". "Without political and diplomatic tools, it is absolutely impossible to make headway in the current North Korea situation".

"China holds the key, the oil to North Korea flows from China ..." Many are now watching to see what conclusion is reached on potential North Korea sanctions - including those related to crude oil supplies - at a South Korea-Russia summit scheduled to take place in Vladivostok on September 6.

They are also considering increasing supplies of Russia's liquefied natural gas (LNG) to South Korea, according to President Putin.

But on Thursday, after days of talks with regional leaders and officials, Putin struck a more optimistic note, saying Russian Federation could see that the administration of U.S. President Donald Trump wanted to defuse tensions around North Korea.

A day after North Korea claimed that it tested a hydrogen bomb, U.S. Ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley, said at an emergency UN Security Council Briefing on North Korea that the freeze-for-freeze plan was "insulting". "It cuts off the revenue that allows them to build ballistic missiles", she continued.
