  • Protesters upset with THAAD system in South Korea

South Korea says the US military will begin adding more launchers to a contentious high-tech USA missile defense system in South Korea on Thursday to better cope with North Korean threats.

"At the same time, it is clear that it is impossible to resolve the problem of the Korean peninsula only by sanctions and pressure", he said on Wednesday.

His plea came after North Korea carried out its largest nuclear test to date on Sunday, and amid fears the rogue state is planning a long-range missile launch ahead of a key anniversary this weekend.

The clashes came as South Korean President Moon Jae-in and Japanese Prime Minster Shinzo Abe met in eastern Russian Federation and repeated their calls for stronger punishment of North Korea over its nuclear ambitions, including denying the country oil supplies.

"We should not give in to emotions and push Pyongyang into a corner", Putin said in a news conference after meeting with Moon.

China and Russian Federation, which also have denounced the nuclear test, are calling for more dialogue.

The demand contradicted the stance of their host, Russian President Vladimir Putin, who has dismissed sanctions as a solution. Why are you playing along with it?

Abe, who will meet later in the day with Putin, said before his departure from Japan that "we must make North Korea understand there is no bright future for the country if it pursues the current path". "We estimate this was far bigger than previous nuclear tests".

Diplomats say the UN Security Council could consider banning North Korean textile exports, barring its airline or stopping supplies of oil to the government and military.

"The time for half measures in the Security Council is over".

Myanmar's security forces have reportedly been attacking the Rohingya Muslims in a bid to push them out of the state of Rakhine. Raoul Wallenberg, Nelson Mandela, the Dalai Lama, the Aga Khan, and Malala Yousafzai are among its list of recipients.

The U.N. Security Council is now debating imposing tougher sanctions on North Korea, with Japan and the United States pushing for an oil embargo on the reclusive state.

Haley may have trouble getting other Security Council members - especially Russian Federation and China, who each hold veto power - to sign onto the draft sanctions as they're now written.

Abe and Putin also agreed in talks on the sidelines of the Eastern Economic Forum in the Russian Far East city of Vladivostok to conduct joint economic activities on disputed islands off Hokkaido in five areas: aquaculture, greenhouse farming, tourism, wind power and waste reduction.

Putin said he had invited Abe to attend the St Petersburg International Economic Forum (SPIEF) in 2018, "and Shinzo accepted our invitation".

But Putin praised the recent expansion in Japan-Russia trade and business ties.

South Korean officials say THAAD will strengthen the country's missile defences, which now rely on Patriot-based systems, and will deter North Korea, which has missiles that can be fired from road-mobile launchers or submarines.

"The situation is very grave".

Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has urged all Australians overseas, but especially those in or heading to China, Japan or South Korea, to register with the government's Smart Traveller website.

'Having said that, I remain confident the global community will put more economic pressure on North Korea and that will bring. the regime to its senses'.

Geng told reporters that China had complained to the USA and South Korea and urged them to "take seriously the security concerns and interests of China and other regional countries". It believes the system's radar could be used to look deeply into its territory and will upset the regional security balance.
