Putin called for dialogue on the crisis and warned against other actions that could cause the situation to escalate.

Putin explains that this is the only way to deal with the crisis, adding that increasing "military hysteria" during such a situation would be "senseless".

Indeed, given the regime now had nuclear weapons, a confrontation could lead to a "global catastrophe and a huge number of casualties", Putin said, according to Interfax.

The underground launch set of an natural disaster with a magnitude of 6.3. "But we are not going to do this now". For once, #vladimir putin might be talking reasonable sense.

Putin's comments came while speaking to reporters at a summit meeting in China. "I am also not his bride, nor his groom".

While Mr Putin condemned the North's nuclear test as "provocative", he stopped short of expressing willingness to impose more sanctions on North Korea, saying Moscow views them as "useless and ineffective".

The bulk of Russia's exports to the Democratic People's Republic of Korea are oil, coal and refined products. On the other hand, China which is North Korea's patron and closest political and economic partner is yet to take a clear stand on the issue.

Moscow and Tokyo have not signed a peace treaty after World War II, when the Southern Kuril Islands became part of the Soviet territory.

"Everybody remembers what happened to Saddam Hussein", he said. He noted that Hussein was hanged, his children were murdered, "I think his grandson was shot", and the entire country was brought to its knees.

Putin then called the question "naive" and said the two men are simply "engaged in state activity".

Pyongyang will not relinquish its military program under pressure of sanctions and military threats, because the examples of Iraq and Libya have convinced it that nuclear deterrence is the only credible way to ensure its security, President Putin told journalists on Tuesday.

North Korea on Sunday carried out its most powerful nuclear test to date, claiming to have developed an advanced hydrogen bomb that could sit atop an intercontinental ballistic missile.

China has consistently called for an easing of tensions and has backed Russia's calls for talks.

Mr Moon had called for Moscow to support stronger sanctions against Pyongyang, which conducted its sixth nuclear test on Sunday in what it claimed was a detonation of a thermonuclear weapon built for intercontinental ballistic missiles capable of reaching the U.S. mainland. But now it looks like they're changing their mind.

Defense Secretary Jim Mattis on Sunday said the USA will answer any threat from the North with a "massive military response".
