Russia, N Korea to discuss nuclear crisis in Moscow

Graphic setup of Kim Jong Un and Donald Trump

The report added that the North Korean diplomat met with Russia's Vice Foreign Minister Igor Morgulov.

Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has already promised Australia would stand with the U.S. in the event of a North Korean attack. Moscow said it is willing to work with Pyongyang towards a peaceful resolution of the nuclear tensions after a meeting between Russian and North Korean officials in Moscow on September 29, 2017.

South Korea should try to persuade the United States not to take military action against North Korea because it would to lead to full-scale war on the Korean Peninsula, a ruling party lawmaker said Wednesday. "If Russia can be successful in getting North Korea to move in a better direction, we would certainly welcome that", she told journalists on Thursday.

Choe didn't give any further explanation about her visit, but North Korea's state-run Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) earlier reported that she was invited by Oleg Burmistrov, Russia's ambassador at large, who's also the Kremlin's deputy nuclear negotiator.

The Pentagon said the squadron's flypast was the farthest north of the Korean Demilitarized Zone that any US fighter jet or bomber has flown in the 21st century. A senior official from South Korea's Unification Ministry, which handles inter-Korean relations, admitted that Pyongyang was seeking stronger ties with Moscow, but said the government hadn't detected any signs yet that the ultimate goal was to reach out to Washington. RIA news service said Ulyanov described a war on the Korean Peninsula as having 'catastrophic consequences, ' and that the sanctions tool had been likely exhausted.

Nauert said Friday's talks would follow a visit to Moscow by the USA special envoy for North Korea, Joseph Yun, about two weeks ago.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders called the suggestion "absurd" but North Korea has responded to Mr Trump's comments by boosting defences on its east coast.
