Putin warns Washington provocative rhetoric could spark 'large-scale conflict' with North Korea

"It is essential to resolve the region's problems through direct dialogue involving all sides without advancing any preconditions (for such talks)..." As well, Vladimir Putin warned the USA government that imposing stricter sanctions on North Korea could be "counterproductive and risky".

According to Putin, thinking and pressuring North Korea exclusively to make it stop its missile program is "misguided and futile".

Speaking to students during a national "open lesson" from the city of Yaroslavl, northeast of Moscow, Russian President Vladimir Putin said the country that takes the lead in the sphere of computer-based artificial intelligence (AI) will rule. "[This is] a nation that, despite agreements with the United States, has said they are not going to develop nuclear weapons, yet they continue to". As well, the president considered that further sanctions on North Korea over its nuclear program could be counterproductive and that President Donald Trump should put an end to his belligerent rhetoric.

North Korea, which has already been slapped with numerous sanctions due to its nuclear programme and missile tests, perceives the USA and South Korea's equation and its military exercises as a potential threat.




"Despite the anger of the Chinese public toward North Korea's new nuclear test, we should avoid resorting to rash and extreme means by imposing a full embargo on North Korea", it said in an editorial.

Taking offense, early on Tuesday, North Korea raised the stakes in its standoff with the United States and its allies and fired an intermediate-range missile over Japan.

Instead, she called on related parties to engage in unconditional talks based on the Korean Peninsula peace roadmap proposed by Russian Federation and China. Reuters added that Trump, who often criticized the United Nations, will seek worldwide support for reforming the world organization at this meeting.

Following Trump's remarks, Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull said his country would join the USA and go to war with North Korea if asked.
