Putin calls for support of Russian-Chinese plan

  • Putin, after meeting S.Korean leader, calls for talks on N.Korea crisis

NATO ambassadors said after talks in Brussels on Wednesday that "it is now imperative that all nations implement more thoroughly and transparently existing U.N. sanctions" against the North.

Mr Turnbull said the risk of war was the greatest since the end of the Korean War and the government was developing emergency plans for Australians in the area.

Other measures could include preventing North Koreans from working overseas and putting top officials on a blacklist aimed at imposing asset freezes and travel bans.

South Korea on Thursday completed the deployment of the Terminal High Altitude Area Defence (THAAD) anti-missile system, built by the United States, on its territory with the installation of four additional missile interceptors amid overnight clashes between residents and the security forces that left dozens injured.

South Korea's defence ministry, which warned on Monday that North Korea was ready to launch an ICBM at any time, said they were unable to confirm the contents of the report.

Its sixth nuclear test on Sunday prompted the U.S. to speak about a "military response" and South Korea to conduct major military exercises.

"The battery will be operational as soon as the USA finishes its internal procedures", ministry spokesman Moon Sang-gyun told reporters. By comparison, China provides it with about 520,000 tonnes of crude a year, according to industry sources.

Mr Trump repeated his commitment to "defending the homeland, territories, and allies of the United States, using all available diplomatic and military capabilities".




Putin called on all North Korea's neighbors to show restraint, indicating the bellicose rhetoric and the military drills are only "playing into their hands".

The 29-nation US -led alliance expressed full solidarity with Japan and South Korea, North Korea's neighbors.

"I am allowing Japan & South Korea to buy a substantially increased amount of highly sophisticated military equipment from the United States", the American president said on Twitter. Those missiles, successfully tested twice in July, have the ability to reach the U.S. mainland, North Korea says.

Washington and Seoul began deploying THAAD before a conservative South Korean government was ousted in March in a corruption scandal.

China objects to both the military drills and the deployment in South Korea of an advanced US missile defence system that has a radar that can see deep into Chinese territory.

Two THAAD batteries have already been installed.

Kim, a third-generation dictator in his thirties, has conducted four of North Korea's six nuclear tests since taking power in 2011. The test unleashed a powerful 6.3-magnitude tremor which was felt across the border in China. "We estimate this was far bigger than previous nuclear tests".

Tokyo sees the joint activities in the Russian-held, Japanese-claimed islands off Japan's northernmost main island as a pathway to resolving the territorial dispute and signing a post-World War II peace treaty, while Moscow hopes to attract Japanese investments in promoting the underdeveloped regions.
