VLADIVOSTOK, September 6. /TASS/. During talks with South Korean leader Moon Jae-in, Russian President Vladimir Putin reiterated that sanctions on North Korea were useless, emphasizing the need to engage Pyongyang in dialogue, Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov said.
While commenting on media reports, which claim that there was a difference of opinion between Putin and Moon Jae-in on the North Korea oil embargo, Peskov pointed out that the South Korean president had expressed hope that friendly relations could be built on the Korean Peninsula and North Korea could be involved in Russian-South Korean projects. "Russian President has said many times that trade and oil supplies are at a low level, so in this case it seems unreasonable [to block them]," Peskov said.
Besides, according to the Russian presidential spokesman, Putin also said that "he strongly condemns Pyongyang’s provocative actions." "We do not support pressure on Pyongyang. On the contrary, it needs to be engaged in dialogue to find a way out of the situation. This is what Russian pointed to today," Peskov concluded.
