Japan's Abe agrees with Putin North Korea nuclear test threatens peace

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

Abe, who will meet later in the day with Putin, said before his departure from Japan that "we must make North Korea understand there is no bright future for the country if it pursues the current path".

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.

The Russian leader has been unusually outspoken about North Korea and how the global community should respond in the wake of the country's North Korea's sixth nuclear test Sunday.

Analysts said the test has made it more urgent for Seoul to deal with Pyongyang, and Seoul is eager to leverage on the Kremlin to break the nuclear impasse.

"I can say for sure that there will be no war on the Korean peninsula again", Moon said.

Mr Trump is believed to have stressed to Mrs May 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". He added that North Korea was a grave and immediate threat.

South Korean Prime Minister Lee Nak-yon said Thursday his country expects their northern neighbors to test-fire the type of long-range missile created to deliver a nuclear warhead to far-off places like the United States on Saturday, an important North Korean holiday.

Seoul also warned that North Korea may launch a new missile as soon as this weekend. The yen strengthened on Lee's remarks.

The North has conducted a series of missile and nuclear tests in the past year despite sanctions, testing two intercontinental ballistic missiles in July and firing a missile over Japan last week.

North Korea to launch ICBM Saturday, South Korea prime minister says

Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has urged all Australians overseas, but especially those in or heading to China, Japan or South Korea, to register with the government's Smart Traveller website.

Trump and British Prime Minister Theresa May agreed in a telephone call on Tuesday that China, the North's main ally and trading partner, must do more to persuade North Korea to cease its missile tests, a spokesman for May said.

Geng says the THAAD system would aggravate tensions on the Korean Peninsula and jeopardize the strategic and security interests of China and other countries.

On coming to power in May, Moon opposed the early installation of the shield.

"Now is the time to apply pressure on North Korea to generate a response, with dialogue only coming after that", Kono told reporters.

The leaders of South Korea and Japan are holding talks with Putin in Vladivostok on the sidelines of a conference on economic development of Russia's Far East. It ordered travel agencies to stop selling tour packages to South Korea and took steps against Lotte Group, one of South Korea's largest family-run conglomerates, which offered up the land that hosts Thaad's missile battery.

In talks with Mr Putin on Monday, Mr Moon brought up the idea of getting the United Nations Security Council to block North Korea's foreign currency income, including banning the export of labour, and cutting off oil supplies.

The U.N. Security Council is now debating imposing tougher sanctions on North Korea, with Japan and the United States pushing for an oil embargo on the reclusive state.

The bid for the toughest penalties yet against North Korea comes despite renewed warnings against such moves by the leaders of China and Russian Federation, which have veto power in the Security Council.
