South Korea's Moon says he and Putin share understanding on North Korea

Troy University’s Daniel Pinkston weighs in on North Korea’s nuclear weapon test and what the regime aims to achieve

He is the reigning bad boy of global affairs, a nemesis of American presidents and an antagonist who flouts worldwide borders and diplomatic protocols.

"If we work together, we can come up with a collective solution to the North Korean problem", Moon Chung-in said.

The United States wants the UN Security Council to impose an oil embargo on North Korea, ban its exports of textiles and the hiring of North Korean labourers overseas, and to subject leader Kim Jong Un to an asset freeze and travel ban, according to a draft resolution seen by Reuters on Wednesday. "They would rather eat grass than give up their nuclear programme", he said. Hussein abandoned the production of weapons of mass destruction.

Regarding the two countries recently closing diplomatic properties belonging to the other, Putin said Russia's Foreign Ministry will file a lawsuit against the U.S., the Post said.

Russia has initiated legal action against the United States over Washington's seizure of Russian diplomatic posts on American soil. "Therefore, for a start, I will order the Foreign Ministry to go to court - and let's see just how efficient the much-praised US judiciary is". He is, once again, looking for ways to embarrass the White House.

"As for North Korea, Russia is the least hostile of all the great powers involved in resolving this crisis", he says, insisting that historic ties mean Russia still knows "many people" who matter there. "He's a spoiler, without question".

North Korea announced on Sunday carrying out a successful hydrogen experiment, the thing that caused worldwide denouncement. Therefore, Putin's argument could allow North Korea to warn the worldwide community that even if China were to restrict its oil exports to North Korea, Pyongyang could make up for it with imports from Russian Federation.

U.S. President Donald Trump has said that "now is not the time to talk to North Korea" and that "all options remain open to defend the United States and its allies".

South Korea is closely watching North Korea over the possibility it may launch another intercontinental ballistic missile as soon as Saturday when it celebrates its founding anniversary.


"We shouldn't succumb to emotions and corner North Korea", Putin said.

As it assesses the rest of the world's reluctance to engage in nuclear crossfire, the North could act more aggressively with its conventional forces against South Korea.

A military strike would signal "a very sad day for North Korea", he said. "Is it inevitable? Nothing is inevitable", Trump told reporters. "He sees him as a insane comical despot of a tiny country", he said. But he insisted that military action wouldn't be his first choice.

Mr. Putin, too, has yet to propose anything unique.

South Korea says the US military will begin adding more launchers to a contentious high-tech USA missile defense system in South Korea on Thursday to better cope with North Korean threats. His father-in-law was the North Korean prime minister at the time. The key to this process is held by Russian Federation and China, which are permanent members of the Security Council and have the right of veto.

North Korea may have thermonuclear technology. "The other half is dialogue and negotiation", he said.

Trump is to speak Wednesday with China's president.

"Our whole concept does not allow for the isolation and strangulation of North Korea, and the weakening of the regime", he explains. "An oil embargo, if properly enforced, surely would do the latter", wrote Benjamin Katzeff Silberstein, an associate scholar at the Foreign Policy Research Institute who writes the North Korean Economy Watch. "Certainly, the North Koreans will not forget it. Sanctions of any kind are useless and ineffective in this case".

In his election campaign previous year, Donald Trump chided Japan and South Korea for not contributing enough to their defences.
