He warned Australia could be struck by a North Korean weapon.

The ministry's Mikhail Ulyanov said the country was working "behind the scenes" to find a political solution, but admitted the use of sanctions against North Korea is nearly exhausted.

Choe Son Hui, director of the North Korean foreign ministry's North America department, met with Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Igor Morgulov and Ambassador At Large Oleg Burmistrov.

Attending the U.N. General Assembly in NY last week, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov pushed a proposal by Moscow and Beijing for a dual suspension of North Korean weapons tests and the U.S.

Russian Federation might be trying to get involved in back-channel diplomacy between Pyongyang and Washington, the sources said.




Pyongyang says it will not give up on its nuclear deterrence unless Washington ends its hostile policy toward the country and dissolves the US-led United Nations command in South Korea.

The already heightened tensions on the Korean Peninsula in the wake of the North's sixth nuclear test have risen further since last week as U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un traded bellicose rhetoric. "President Putin could be that person because he's befriended President Trump", said Yang.

It said that her trip was arranged at the invitation of Burmistrov who visited the North in late July.

The North sent a delegation to Russia's Eastern Economic Forum, held from September 6 to 7 in Vladivostok, and diplomats at the Russian Embassy in Pyongyang held a ceremony to celebrate the 15th anniversary of former North Korean leader Kim Jong-il's visit to Russia. It remains to be seen whether this strategy will work or if Moscow or Beijing actually still have leverage over the North Korean junta. China also recently gave a green light to a package of sanctions in the UN Security Council that attemtps to ban over 90 percent of the country's exports. DPRK stands for the North's official name, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.
