After South Korean President Moon Jae-in asked for Russia’s help to cut off oil supplies to North Korea, Vladimir Putin warned against backing Pyongyang into a corner.
“We should not act out of emotions and push North Korea into a dead end,” Mr. Putin said, according to dispatches from South Korean reporters. “We must act with calm and avoid steps that could raise tensions.”
Speaking before his meeting with Putin, Moon said that “If we fail to stop North Korea’s provocations now, it could sink into an uncontrollable situation.”
“Stopping oil supply to North Korea is inevitable,” Moon’s spokesman Yoon Young-chan quoted him as saying during the meeting. “I’m asking for Russia’s cooperation.”
Most major Asian indices were down Wednesday as the world fails to reach consensus on how to approach North Korea. The Hang Seng, Kospi and Nikkei were down 0.46%, 0.29% and 0.14%, respectively. The Shanghai Composite was flat with a gain of 0.03%.
Germany’s DAX is leading European gains, up as much as more than 1.00%, with France’s CAC40 gaining as much 0.50%. The S&P is up 0.20% as of 11 am.
Wise words from Mr Putin indeed!
Putin is the only leader who can solve this problems of Korea-a both governments
Let the North Korea be without interference from US and it’s allies. US constant interference
in North Korea’s internal affairs has made what North Korea is now and making it more dangerous. A cornered animal will fight back no matter how big and furicious the predator is.

Каква късопаметност. Амнезия е поразила повечето държавни "лидери"
Толкова ли са малоумни наистина или просто са невъобразимо безпомощни – длъжни да се подчиняват на безумци от анонимни световни властови центрове?
Япония беше принудена да влезе във война въпреки неблаорпятните дългосрочни прогнози на нейните експерти и военните.
