Protests in South Korea as nations wrestle with North missile threat

"One should not give in to emotions and drive North Korea into a corner", said Putin after a meeting with South Korean President Moon Jae-in at the Eastern Economic Forum.

Chinese foreign minister Wang Yi said Beijing supports further United Nations action against North Korea but also wants to see renewed efforts to begin dialogue involving all sides.

This Russian leader has come out as rather outspoken especially regarding the way the global community should respond to North Korea's nuclear threats.

South Korea deployed four remaining USA anti-missile THAAD system launchers on Thursday created to protect against mounting threats from North Korea while protesters clashed with thousands of police in Seongju City, the deployment site.

While criticizing the North's sixth nuclear test, allegedly of a hydrogen bomb, on Sunday, the Russian leader maintained a lukewarm position, saying that pressure and sanctions alone can not solve the problem.

Police sent thousands of officers to remove several hundred protesters who were blocking a road to a former golf course where the Terminal High-Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) System has been set up.

Putin reiterated his opposition to further sanctions against North Korea, saying that "the problems of the Korean Peninsula can not be resolved with sanctions and pressure alone".

Russian and Japanese leaders "decisively condemn" North Korean tests
Administration officials said on Thursday there remains ample room for additional economic pressure on North Korea. Abe is due to meet Putin separately later in the day.

Beijing says the system's powerful radars will be able to monitor flights and missile launches deep inside north-eastern China.

Several U.S. military vehicles, including trucks carrying payloads covered in black sheets that appeared to be launchers, had been seen heading toward the site.

Both leaders "condemned North Korea's continued reckless and unsafe behavior" and reaffirmed the importance of close coordination at the United Nations.

The full deployment of the THAAD, which consists of at least six launchers, comes 14 months after Washington and Seoul in July 2016 agreed to install it on South Korean territory to counteract the North Korean threat. Moon temporarily halted the installation after taking office to conduct more environmental reviews and ease residents' concerns.

In another phone call with Abe, the two leaders condemned North Korea's continued destabilising and provocative actions.

"Any new actions taken by the worldwide community against the DPRK should serve the objective of curbing the DPRK's nuclear and missile programmes, while at the same time be conducive to restarting dialogue and consultation", he said.
