Moon S. Korea Russia Cooperation Will Draw N. Korea's Change

He stressed a diplomatic solution with Pyongyang was possible.

Moon, in a phone call with Putin before the conference, also called for a ban on overseas North Korean workers, who are a key foreign currency source for the North. Putin told Moon that the North Korean problem should be solved diplomatically, according to Seoul's presidential office.

"Today, as never before, everyone needs to show composure and avoid steps that lead to an escalation of tensions", he said.

World powers are scrambling to respond to the latest advance in North Korea's rogue nuclear weapons programme, which has sent global tensions soaring. "But as South Korean President Moon Jae-in makes his debut on the Russian stage it's his bilateral summits on the margins of the regional forum stealing the limelight especially as his visit comes as worldwide concerns grow over Pyongyang's powerful nuclear test this past weekend".

He said they shared the view that the North's nuclear issue should be resolved quickly to realize the "infinite potentials" of the Korean Peninsula and the Far East region. The missile systems, "Terminal High-Altitude Area Defense (Thaad)" was on the verge of installation at a golf course in the village when the protest began.

Russian Federation won't stop delivering oil products to North Korea, as dialogue, not sanctions, is the only solution to the crisis, said Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov.

Moon said Wednesday that the situation could get out of hand if North Korea's missile and nuclear tests aren't stopped.

North Korean laborers would also be banned from working overseas.

In addition, US President Donald Trump, along with the South Korean Prime Minister, Moon and the Japanese prime minister, Shinzo Abe, are working towards an oil embargo against the North - a move outrightly opposed by China and Russian Federation.

Putin also said he and Abe discussed the prospect of joint economic activities with Japan on the disputed Kurile islands in the Pacific.
