DP members join chorus calling for U.S. nukes

DP members join chorus calling for U.S. nukes

Mr Moon and Mr Abe agreed to co-operate on seeking tougher United Nations sanctions against North Korea and pledged to strengthen efforts to persuade Beijing and Moscow to cut off oil supplies to the North, said Mr Moon's press secretary.

"We have much to offer and much to work on", he added.

He added: "The build-up of some military atmosphere, of hysteria, is counter-productive, in my opinion".

South Korean nuclear experts, checking for contamination, said on Friday they had found minute traces of radioactive xenon gas but that it was too early to link it to Sunday's explosion.

"They [North Korea] believe that owing nuclear weapons and missile technology provides them with the only opportunity to defend themselves", he said. "They think that means the next step for them is an invitation to the cemetery". But we will not be putting up with what's happening in North Korea. Trump, who also once favored talks with Pyongyang, recently said this was "not the answer". The diplomatic and security establishment in the South Korean government needs to stay balanced and take the lead by providing the U.S. with a roadmap for negotiations with North Korea, but it's doubtful whether they're actually doing so. "So why do you play along?"

"We will not be putting up with what's happening in North Korea", Trump told reporters Wednesday after the conversation.

Putin noted his country only shipped about 40,000 tons of oil to North Korea a year but still remained reluctant to give his support, citing possible damage to the ordinary people there.

According to the Russian leader. "And they will never agree with this".

Speaking at the Eastern Economic Forum (EEF) in Vladivostok today, he urged the global community to solve the North Korea nuclear crisis by "diplomatic means".

Even as Trump has insisted that now is not the time to talk, senior members of his administration have made clear that the door to a diplomatic solution is open, especially given the US assessment that any pre-emptive strike would unleash massive North Korean retaliation.

"I am sure that things will not go as far as a large-scale conflict, especially with the use of weapons of mass destruction", Putin told delegates at the forum.

Putin pointed out that he had discussed the North Korean issue with the leaders of Japan and North Korea.

Meanwhile the South Korean president said that "perhaps the time has come for stronger sanctions" on Pyongyang.

Moon and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe agreed to cooperate on seeking tougher United Nations sanctions against North Korea, which conducted its sixth nuclear test on Sunday in what it claimed was a detonation of a thermonuclear weapon built for missiles capable of reaching the us mainland.

Today, North Korea faces similar scrutiny with many doubting its nuclear and missile technology.

Experts believe the isolated regime is close to its goal of developing a powerful nuclear weapon capable of reaching the United States, something U.S. President Donald Trump has vowed to prevent.

In his opinion, "it is a right thing to be alarmed - alarmed one should be when there are such tensions in the region, but there is a need to continue investing because if you stop economic activities in the region, the situation will deteriorate instead of improving".
