China says it will back new measures against N.Korea

North Korea nuclear test provocative – Putin

"It's counterproductive to inflate this military hysteria".

Sep 6 South Korean President Moon Jae-In urged Russian Federation on Wednesday to cooperate over cutting oil supplies to North Korea but President Vladimir Putin appeared to pour cold water on the idea.

South Korea's military is watching North Korea closely for signs of provocations, officials said Saturday, amid concern the regime could undertake a missile launch or even another nuclear test on its founding anniversary.

Their conversation came days after North Korea's latest - and most powerful - nuclear test.

"Given the new developments on the Korean peninsula, China agrees that the UN Security Council should respond further by taking necessary measures", he told a press conference in Beijing.

"Each day, new equipment is delivered; new and handsome equipment, the best in the world - the best anywhere in the world, by far", he said of United States military capacity. "The United States should by all means keep in mind the nuclear status of our country, (which) owns nuclear and hydrogen bombs, and intercontinental ballistic missiles".

North Korea says it needs to develop its weapons to defend itself against what it sees as US aggression. "They count on a specific reaction from the partners and they get it. Have ever you thought about it?"

PRIME Minister Turnbull has urged about 200,000 Australians in China, Japan and South Korea to register on the Department of Foreign Affairs' Smart Traveller website amid mounting tensions on the Korean peninsula.

Putin's warnings haven't stopped the United States from trying to pursue a tough global response to the nuclear test, especially at the United Nations.

A US-drafted resolution obtained by AFP also called for banning textile exports and ending payments made to North Korean labourers sent overseas, further depriving the regime of revenue to pursue its military programs. "We must now adopt the strongest possible measures", Nikki Haley, the USA ambassador to the United Nations, said earlier this week.

Country Music Legend Don Williams Dead at 78
In 2010, he was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame, and continued to tour until his retirement past year . Country music great Don Williams has died after a short illness, his publicist announced Friday afternoon.

Following the conversation with Xi, the USA leader said that a military response was not his first option.

Russian Federation has a land border with North Korea less than 20-km long.

"They [North Korea] believe that owing nuclear weapons and missile technology provides them with the only opportunity to defend themselves", he said.

Moscow exports about 40,000 tons of oil to Pyonyang, a tiny percentage of Russia's overall trade, Putin said, according to Yoon. South Korea's Unification Ministry said on Wednesday it was still expecting more activity from the North. "The other half is dialogue and negotiation", he said.

Dozens of people have been injured in clashes between South Korean protesters and police as the U.S. military added more launchers to the missile-defence system it installed in a southern town to handle North Korean threats.

"The situation is very grave".

South Koreans have taken to the streets in recent months to protest the missile defense system, anxious by the escalation of the current crisis on the Korean peninsula.

Amid the rising tension, South Korea installed the four remaining launchers of a USA anti-missile Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) system on a former golf course south of its capital, Seoul, early on Thursday.

"There is no change in the government's position to make the final decision on whether the THAAD system will be deployed (in South Korea) after carrying out the general environmental impact assessment of the entire site thoroughly and fairly", the ministry said.
