MOSCOW, April 29 (Itar-Tass) - President Vladimir Putin and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abee vowed to maintain close coordination on the situation on the Korean Peninsula.
At their talks on Monday, April 29, the two leaders paid special attention to the situation on the Korean Peninsula, “which cannot but be a matter of concern” and “agreed to maintain close coordination in the interests of the speediest resolution of the problem,” Putin said at a joint press conference.
The situation on the Korean Peninsula aggravated in February 2013 when North Korea conducted its third nuclear test. In response the U.N. Security Council tightened sanctions against Pyongyang which immediately threatened to deliver a nuclear blow at its neighbours and the United States.
The Republic of Korea and the U.S. stepped up work to build a missile defence system and signed an agreement on mutual assistance in the event of armed hostilities.
After that the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea said it was in a state of war with the Republic of Korea. Foreign diplomatic missions in Pyongyang were advised to leave the country. Due to the growing tensions, China closed its border with North Korea.
