South Korea's President Moon Jae-in said he was ready for a dialogue with North Korea despite the "nuclear provocation" of its test-launch earlier this week of what the isolated state said was a nuclear-capable intercontinental missile. This was reported by Reuters.
Speaking after a meeting with Russia's President Vladimir Putin at the G20 summit in Hamburg, Moon also said he saw a role for Putin in helping de-escalate the crisis on the Korean peninsula.
Putin warned the parties involved against losing self-control with regard to North Korea's nuclear ambitions, urging a "pragmatic, accurate" approach to its missile program.
As it was reported earlier South Korea said DPRK’s test missile launch threatened the whole world. North Korea demonstrated the variety of military missiles during the parade on April 15.
