Putin says intimidation of North Korea must end

Russian President Vladimir Putin said that North Korea’s latest missile test was ‘dangerous’, but he warned that Pyongyang was being intimidated and called for a peaceful solution to regional tensions.

“We are categorically against the expansion of the club of nuclear powers,” Putin told after an international forum in Beijing.

“We consider (the missile test) counter-productive, harmful and dangerous,” Putin said.

But, he added: “We must stop intimidating North Korea and find a peaceful solution to this problem.”

North Korea celebrated Sunday’s launch of what appeared to be its longest-range ballistic missile yet tested in a bid to bring the US mainland within reach, saying it was capable of carrying a ‘heavy nuclear warhead’.
