The leaders of Russian Federation and South Korea have condemned North Korea over its latest nuclear test, but still appear far apart on the issue of stepping up sanctions against Pyongyang.
In July 2016, Seoul and Washington agreed to deploy the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) system in South Korea's Seongju County amid growing tensions spurred by North Korea's ballistic and nuclear tests.
"We should not give in to emotions and push Pyongyang into a corner", Mr Putin said at a press conference after a meeting on the sidelines of a conference on economic development of Russia's Far East, in the port city of Vladivostok.
The ministry noted that six launchers will give the USA a full THAAD battery, meaning it will have a much better chance of detecting and shooting down missiles from the North.
While North Korea claimed to possess a hydrogen bomb past year, seismologists refuted the claim, suggesting that the subsequent quake from that nuclear test was too small to have been the product of a pure fusion weapon. China has also been strongly against the deployment, arguing that the battery's presence undermines its security interests in the region. Moon also called for a ban on overseas North Korean workers - many of them in China and Russian Federation - who provide foreign currency to the North. Speaking to Russian news agency TASS on Tuesday, Moon said he believes now is not the time for talks and that the worldwide community must increase the pressure on North Korea.
Mr Putin told him the North Korean problem should be solved diplomatically, according to Seoul's presidential office.
Even while approving the new installations-which are likely to irritate neighbors China and Russia-South Korean officials insisted the deployment was "provisional", as the environmental survey Moon demanded had not yet been completed before North Korea's alleged hydrogen bomb test this week.
He said it was important that all parties, including North Korea, should not face "threats of annihilation" and "step on the path of cooperation".
