A day after predicting "global catastrophe" if North Korea's nuclear tests lead to anything other than talks, Russian President Vladimir Putin has said the situation may be "impossible" to resolve. "It could lead to global catastrophe with lots of victims". "The North Korean nuclear issue can not be resolved by pressures and sanctions alone", he said.

The defense comes after President Vladimir Putin said Russia's Foreign Ministry would sue the US over the move.

The South has also said it is deploying four more launchers of the US Thaad (Terminal High-Altitude Area Defence) missile defence system to join two already at a site in Seongju, south of Seoul.

An unidentified intelligence source told South Korea's Asia Business Daily the rocket started moving on Monday, a day after North Korea's sixth nuclear test. It also says it wants nothing short of full normalization of relations with the US and to be treated with respect and as an equal in the global arena.

The call on Tuesday comes amid boiling tensions between the USA and North Korea, which has dramatically escalated its pace of weapons tests in recent months.

"Russia condemns North Korea's exercises, we consider that they are a provocation".

On Monday, at the United Nations in New York, US envoy Nikki Haley argued that only the strongest sanctions would enable the problem to be resolved through diplomacy.

The Ukrainian Foreign Ministry said Kiev, which has long called for the deployment of United Nations peacekeepers in the eastern conflict zone, was "prepared to work on this issue".

North Korea claimed that its nuclear warhead could be mounted onto an intercontinental ballistic missile, which would signal considerable progress in its nuclear programme.

Fear that a military conflict may break soon out between North Korea and the U.S. have heightened tensions, and there is concern that Russian Federation may simply be paying lip service to United Nations sanctions.

Vladimir Putin, speaking at a press conference following a BRICS meeting in Xiamen in China, struck a discord with Washington's approach to the North Korea crisis when he criticized the pursuit of further sanctions as useless and denounced military threats against the regime of Kim Jong-Un as risky, reports Xinhua news agency.

The two world leaders said it was time for the worldwide community to exert maximum diplomatic and economic pressure, both agreeing China has the greatest leverage of the rouge nation.

"From North Korea's perspective its nuclear program is the ultimate tool for regime security", Williams noted.
