Putin: Trump is not my bride

В Южной Корее разместят четырельные системы ПРО

'Donald Trump's making some noises about China and the danger here is that he uses this as an opportunity to do what he said we would do during the election campaign and start to impose sanctions with China - that's very unsafe, ' Mr Di Natale told Sky News.

"All of this can lead to a global planetary catastrophe and a great number of victims", he said, implying that Washington´s stance is as much to blame for the tension as Kim´s nuclear brinksmanship.

"China strongly urges the United States and South Korea to pay attention to China and other regional nations' security interests and concerns, immediately halt the progress of the relevant deployment, and remove the relevant equipment", he said. He said more than 600 South Korean companies are working in Russia, while South Korean investments in the Russian economy exceed $2bln.

Trump and British Prime Minister Theresa May agreed in a telephone call on Tuesday that China, the North's main ally and trading partner, must do more to persuade North Korea to cease its missile tests, a spokesman for May said.

Putin said North Korea's neighbors should engage with it, not whip up "military hysteria".

Putin said the United States had a right to close consulates but "it was done in such a rude way".

Washington´s tough-talking ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, is expected to unveil yet another new UN sanctions package targeting Kim Jong-Un´s regime this week.

South Korean President Moon Jae-in and Russian President Vladimir Putin called for efforts to stop North Korea from making any further provocations Wednesday, calling it the most urgent challenge facing their countries and the rest of the world.


An unidentified intelligence source told South Korea's Asia Business Daily the rocket started moving on Monday, a day after North Korea's sixth nuclear test.

Meanwhile, Japanese Defense Minister Itsunori Onodera said the explosive device detonated deep under a North Korean mountain Sunday had a yield of up to 160 kilotons.

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.

"Russia condemns this action from North Korea".

Such measures should include completely cutting off the oil supply to the impoverished North, Moon has said. South Korea has claimed that the North is making preparations for another ICBM test.

Mr. Trump spoke separately with Prime Minister Theresa May of the United Kingdom and Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull of Australia, according to the White House, with all agreeing to work closely and build global support to curb North Korea's aggressive behavior.

And, while China may be concerned about a threat to the military balance in the region, the North Korean regime itself remained undaunted, vowing to send Washington "more gift packages".
