Russian Federation could seek separate United Nations resolution on North Korea

"So strictly speaking, the number of American diplomats in Moscow should be not 455 but 155 fewer, if we are talking about parity", he said. "We will not do this immediately but will see how things develop".

Russian Federation has veto power as a permanent UN Security Council member along with China, the United States, Britain, and France.

"It's ridiculous to put us on the same list as North Korea and then ask for our help in imposing sanctions against North Korea", said Putin.

The United States has yet to circulate the draft, but diplomats said it will likely propose cutting oil supplies to North Korea, banning tourism and sending back North Korean laborers working overseas.

Putin warned on Thursday that the USA and other like-minded nations which pursued pressure policies against North Korea would not succeed and that the current situation could only be resolved through dialogue without preconditions.

South Korean trade officials couldn't be reached by phone for comment Sunday. South Korea has been accused of dumping and subsidizing steel products.

Putin is in Xiamen, China, for a meeting of leaders from the so-called BRICS group, a quintet of nations - Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa - once hailed as dynamic and fast-growing, but that have fallen, to varying degrees, on hard times.

In addition to the US, South Korea, Japan, France and Britain, have called for stronger measures against North Korea, with several arguing for applying a potentially crippling oil embargo.

North Korea has long maintained it wants nuclear weapons and long-range missiles in order to deter the United States from attempting to overthrow the regime of Kim Jong Un, reported CNN, citing Putin.

U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley told an emergency Security Council meeting called in response to North Korea's Sunday nuclear test that the U.S. wants a new United Nations resolution with tougher sanctions adopted by next Monday.

The White House says both leaders "underscored the grave threat that North Korea's latest provocation poses to the entire world" and agreed "to maximize pressure on North Korea using all means at their disposal".

Kearse was a polarizing figure among fans but one of the most consistent wide receivers during Pete Carroll's tenure in Seattle. While the 27-year-old Kearse is not a true number one receiver, he will now be the best player the Jets have at the position.

In an interview with the Russian news agency Tass on Tuesday, Mr Moon said he believes now is not the time for talks and it is important for the global community to strengthen pressure against Pyongyang.

The most recent measures, imposed last month following Pyongyang's July firing of two intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) that apparently brought much of the United States mainland into range, zeroed in on the economy.

The move came in response to North Korea's missile launches in July.

"China will never allow chaos and war on the (Korean) peninsula", he asserted.

North Korea on Sunday claimed to have tested a hydrogen bomb that can be mounted to an intercontinental ballistic missile.
