Japan, Russia discuss fish farming on N. islands

Japan, Russia discuss fish farming on N. islands

South Korea and Russian Federation have called for more to be done to urgently rein in North Korea, but Moscow also warned that sanctions and pressure alone would not work.

Putin's comments, following an global summit in China, came after the United States called for the "strongest possible measures" against North Korea for detonating what it called a hydrogen bomb on Sunday.

Antonio Guterres says it's "absolutely crucial" that the U.N. Security Council is united in dealing with North Korea's nuclear and missile tests and that the U.S., Russia, China, Japan and South Korea use one strategy.

"We can and must achieve positive results", Putin said, speaking at the Eastern Economic Forum on Thursday. "We ultimately need talks with North Korea, but it is not the time right now to speak of a dialogue with North Korea". Moon also said in July that the final decision on the THAAD deployment would be made after a general environmental impact assessment was completed, but then reversed himself on this message by immediately ordering the additional deployment after North Korea began test-launching intercontinental ballistic missiles.

Moon and Abe in their meeting agreed to cooperate on seeking tougher United Nations sanctions against North Korea and pledged to strengthen efforts to persuade Beijing and Moscow into cutting off oil supplies to the North, said Yoon Young-chan, Moon's chief press secretary.

The proposed measures, which are set to be discussed on Monday, also include a ban on the country exporting textiles and the hiring of North Korean workers overseas.

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe described as "historic" recent talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

North Korea held a mass celebration for the scientists involved in carrying out its largest nuclear blast to date, with fireworks and a huge rally in Pyongyang.

"We have chose to temporarily deploy the remaining launchers along with United States construction equipment and materials (...) to prepare for the heightened security situation in North Korea due to North Korea's nuclear and missile threats", the South Korean Defence Ministry said in a statement.

Abe quickly steered the discussion toward Pyongyang, saying at the outset that he hoped to discuss such regional issues as the North Korea problem "for the sake of regional peace and stability". By comparison, China provides it with about 520,000 tonnes of crude a year, according to industry sources.

China is by far North Korea's biggest trading partner, accounting for 92 percent of two-way trade past year.

Donald Trump also urged China to do more to rein in its neighbor.

U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said Monday the Trump administration would seek the strongest possible sanctions against Kim Jong Un's regime.

A day later, Trump tweeted, "I am allowing Japan & South Korea to buy a substantially increased amount of highly sophisticated military equipment from the United States".

Correction: a previous version story wrongly attributed the headline quote to the South Korean defense minister, not the prime minister.

The clash was ignited by the deployment of a U.S. missile defense system aimed at countering possible attacks from North Korea.

Earlier Thursday, the final parts of a controversial U.S. missile defense system arrived at a base in South Korea as hundreds of protesters thronged the area amid a huge police presence.

A part of a Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) system travels as it heads for Seongju, near the Osan Air Base in Pyeongtaek, South Korea, on Wednesday. He warns South Korea about "appeasement", but who's appeasing whom?

Asian stocks fell on Wednesday after a slide on Wall Street overnight while the dollar was on the defensive with Korean tension showing few signs of abating. But cooperation is extremely hard given the ongoing investigations into Trump's ties to Russian Federation and the USA sanctions for Russia's interference in the 2016 election, which have triggered a tit-for-tat diplomatic battle.

Japan upgraded its assessment of the North Korean test to 160 kilotons from 120 kilotons after the size of the quake it generated was revised to magnitude 6.1.

In response to the latest tests, the South Korean Navy announced Tuesday it conducted live-fire drills off the east coast of the Korean Peninsula to check its "immediate operational readiness" after the country's Air Force and Army conducted their own joint drills.

The NATO military alliance is calling for worldwide pressure to be ratcheted up against North Korea following its latest nuclear test.

"It's impossible to scare them", said Putin.
