North Korea crisis can be solved with 'common sense', says President Putin

North Korea crisis can be solved with 'common sense', says President Putin

They also agreed to strengthen strategic communication between the two countries to solve the issue of North Korea's nuclear weapons.

"The situation is very grave".

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe called for exerting the highest possible pressure on North Korea to oblige the regime to let go its nuclear and ballistic program.

"A special measure is urgently needed to stop their recklessness".

"There is a need to take steps toward applying pressure (on North Korea) of a different dimension".

Dozens have been injured in clashes between protesters and police in a South Korea farming village where the US military will begin installing additional launchers to a contentious USA missile defense system.

Two launchers have been operational at the site since May, CNN reported.

However Russian President Vladimir Putin said Pyongyang couldn't be intimidated and brushed off a renewed call for tighter sanctions by his South Korean counterpart Moon Jae-In as the three were in the Russian port city of Vladivostok for an economic forum.

The announcement by the Swedish Foreign Affairs Ministry came hours after Mexico's government said it declared North Korean Ambassador Kim Hyong Gil as persona non grata and ordered him to leave the country within 72 hours in response to Sunday's nuclear test. Abe is due to meet Putin separately later today.

Donald ends Rams holdout, won't play in opener
He started his holdout at the beginning of camp, with reports suggesting that Donald was ready to miss regular-season games. Coach Sean McVay said Friday that Donald "won't be a part of this [week's] game".

An agreement revealed Tuesday removes a 500-kilogram warhead limit on South Korea's maximum-range missiles, which would allow the South to potentially target the North's underground facilities and shelters.

As the additional missile launchers arrived in Seongju late Wednesday, they were met by hundreds of protesters, who believe the system's presence could lead to environmental and health problems. If North Korea is open to a peaceful solution, its participation in the economic cooperation of the region will solidify mutual trust between countries in the region.

South Korean President Moon Jae-in said Moscow and Seoul have agreed to develop projects involving North Korea.

South Korean ships including a 2,500-ton frigate, a 1,000-ton patrol ship and 400-ton guided-missile vessels participated in the drills aimed at retaliating against potential North Korean provocations, the Defence Ministry said.

This opened the door for President Putin to negotiate the peace deal between the ROK and DPRK in a move which would deprive President Trump of that coup de main, to the relief also of Beijing, going into the 19th Communist Party Congress, opening in Bejing on October 18, 2017.

Moon arrived earlier in the day for a two-day visit.

His efforts have been hampered by bellicose rhetoric on all sides of the North Korean issue, and worsening relations between Seoul and Washington.

Hours after Sunday's nuclear test, U.S. President Donald Trump logged onto Twitter to denounce North Korea as an embarrassment to China, which he claimed was "trying to help (end the crisis) but with little success". It said Monday that Trump "provided his conceptual approval for the purchase of many billions of dollars' worth of military weapons and equipment from the United States by South Korea".

Meanwhile, regarding a deal that Japan and South Korea reached in late 2015 over the comfort women issue, Abe said, "It's important to implement it steadily".
