Putin: Trump administration willing to defuse North Korea tensions
11 September, 2017, 15:29
The United States on Wednesday demanded the United Nations slap an oil embargo on Pyongyang and a freeze on the foreign assets of its leader Kim Jong Un in a dramatic bid to force an end to the perilous nuclear stand-off.
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. The plan would see Pyongyang suspend its nuclear and missile tests in exchange for a halt in joint US-South Korean military drills.
South Korea has said the launchers for the US missile defense system known as Thaad would be installed in the face of the growing threat from Pyongyang.
Early on Monday, some 8,000 South Korean police had been deployed to the area to maintain order and to pave the way for the arrival of 10 USA military vehicles carrying equipment for the four remaining THAAD launchers.
Early on Monday, around 8,000 South Korean police gathered in the village of Soseong-ri, along the only road that leads up to the golf course, to break up a blockade of around 300 villagers and civic groups opposed to THAAD. Beijing says the system's powerful radars will be able to monitor flights and missile launches deep inside northeastern China.
While Japan, South Korea and the United States are spearheading efforts to tighten the net around North Korea over its nuclear development program, Russian Federation is refusing to budge from its insistence that dialogue is the only option.
"We will respond to the barbaric plotting around sanctions and pressure by the United States with powerful counter-measures of our own", North Korea said in a statement by its delegation to an economic forum in Vladivostok.
"President Xi would like to do something. We must now adopt the strongest possible measures", Nikki Haley, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, said earlier this week.
On Thursday and Friday, the US and South Korea are set to conduct a joint anti-submarine drill, Yonhap news agency reported.
Speaking at an economic forum in Russia's eastern port of Vladivostok, Mr Putin said he believes the Trump administration is "willing to resolve the situation".
"We believe that sanctions as pressure are only half of the key to resolving the nuclear issue". "It will only severely undermine the strategic balance in the region, jeopardize strategic and security interests of the regional countries, including China, aggravate the tension and confrontation, and further complicate the Peninsular issue".
South Korean President Moon Jae-in says more launchers were added to a contentious high-tech missile defense system because his country faces an unprecedented security threat from North Korea. "It doesn't seem much time is left before North Korea achieves its complete nuclear armament", Lee told a meeting of defense ministers Thursday in Seoul.
The statement says both leaders stressed that the global community has condemned North Korea's "provocations".
Its sixth nuclear test on Sunday prompted the United States to speak about a "military response" and South Korea to conduct major military exercises.
Russian Federation has a land border with North Korea less than 20-km long. In fact, Russian Federation believes it is not North Korea that threatens its security, but the United States' growing military might in Northeast Asia.
