Vladivostok, September 7: While Russia, China advised tougher sanction on North Korea could be counterproductive, standing firm on the previous position Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and South Korean President Moon Jae-in agreed to pressurize the overactive nuclear nation through tougher UN Sanctions. The leaders met in Russia’s Vladivostok.

As per local news report, the two countries will call on China and Russia for their support for new sanctions against North Korea. Along with that, the two countries will continue bilateral cooperation with their ally, the United States.

Russia and China are two veto-wielding permanent members of United Nations Security Council. Hence to impose a tougher sanction on North Korea, support from the countries is very much needed whereas both the countries seem to be the further sanction.

Japan PM Abe said, “I hope to continue close coordination between Japan and South Korea and among Japan, South Korea, and the United States.” “Through the promotion of exchanges in various areas, I hope we will build a new, future-oriented Japan-South Korea relationship,” Abe added.

As everyone knows North Korea tension is mounting after its 6th nuclear test and the fear of another test is rising, South Korean President Moon said close coordination between the two countries has become “even more critical”. “I want to start concrete talks on ways to cooperate substantively,” he said.
