Russian and Japanese leaders "decisively condemn" North Korean tests

Russian and Japanese leaders

On Thursday morning, South Korean President Moon Jae-in met with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo in Vladivostok where they are attending the Eastern Economic Forum, hosted by Russian President Vladimir Putin. "Rather, it is time to tighten the screws on North Korea with a view to forcing the regime to change its strategic calculation".

On the danger of war on the Peninsula, the source said that this is considered to be nearly totally unreal in South Korea, by all political factions, as it is clear that Kim Jong-un knows that starting a war would be the end of North Korea as a state.

The prospect of a USA nuclear strike and subsequent chaos and a refugee exodus is even more scary than a democratic country on Russia's doorstep, said another Korea scholar, Alexander Zhebin. During a phone talk with Putin on Monday, Moon revealed a glimpse of the key points to be proposed in upcoming United Nations sanctions and asked for Moscow's support.

"We must make North Korea understand there is no bright future for the country if it pursues the current path". That would include China.

"Worries have begun to appear", he declared of the USA commitments, and said a growing minority of South Koreans want Washington to redeploy short-range nuclear weapons that were withdrawn from the country in the early 1990s. The Chinese leadership does not want to do anything that could bring about the collapse of the North Korean regime and, in the process, provoke its leader to lash out at China. Abe is due to meet Putin separately later in the day. A United Nations human rights investigator said in 2015 that North Korea was forcing more than 50,000 people to work overseas, mainly in Russian Federation and China, earning between $1.2 billion and $2.3 billion a year.

Japan's Defense Minister said Wednesday the explosive device detonated deep under a North Korean mountain Sunday had a yield of up to 160 kilotons.

This marked Tokyo's second revision higher after previously giving estimates of 70 and 120 kilotons. "We estimate this was far bigger than previous nuclear tests". From its nuclear energy program, Japan sits on a stockpile of reprocessed plutonium that could be turned into the material for thousands of bombs.

Administration officials said on Thursday there remains ample room for additional economic pressure on North Korea.

But Sunday's test, the sixth and most powerful North Korea has conducted since its first in 2006, was a stunning advance in its demonstrated ability to build high-yield nuclear weapons.

"The US will receive more gift packages from my country as long as it relies on reckless provocations and futile attempts to put pressure on the DPRK", Han Tae-song said, referring to the acronym for the country's official name, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.

Garrett's question comes after North Korea held a hydrogen bomb test in recent days, while making new provocative statements in spite of global pressure. Those missiles, successfully tested twice in July, have the ability to reach the United States mainland, North Korea says.

"We will not be putting up with what's happening in North Korea". The time has come to exhaust all of our diplomatic means before it's too late.

"Is it right to say that we want to be protected by United States nuclear weapons but we don't want them on our soil?" asked the former minister, while acknowledging it was an "emotional" issue in pacifist Japan, still scarred by the obliteration of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in World War II.
