Putin called for dialogue on the crisis and warned against other actions that could cause the situation to escalate.

Drawing a parallel between USA interventions against Saddam Hussein and Muammar Gaddafi and the current North Korean situation, Putin suggested that Pyongyang would abandon its nuclear weapons if the safety of the regime were guaranteed.

Putin refused to discuss calls in the U.S.to impeach Trump, and when he was asked for a personal assessment of his American counterpart's performance as president, the Russian leader said he was anything but let down.

Putin was speaking after South Korea said an agreement with the United States to scrap a weight limit on its warheads would help it respond to the North Korea threat after Pyongyang conducted its sixth and largest nuclear test two days ago.

Activists and analysts have insisted that this is far from the case, and that diplomacy is the only way to avoid a "nuclear nightmare". One issue Putin underlined as being particularly insulting is the suggestion that Russian Federation poses a threat like that of the world's rogue regimes. "Clearly bloviating and sanctions are failing".

New sanctions could also seek to curb tourism to the country.

Western capitals have been paying closer attention to Russian economic ties with North Korea since a series of missile and nuclear tests carried out by Pyongyang prompted warnings that a military conflict could break out on the Korean peninsula.

South Korean officials have also reported signs of another missile test in the works, possibly a long-range launch set for this weekend.

The American plan to close the three diplomatic facilities followed Moscow's order for nearly half of U.S. personnel to leave their positions in Russian Federation and the seizure of two USA diplomatic properties in response to expanded sanctions passed by Congress.

U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley told an emergency Security Council meeting called in response to North Korea's Sunday nuclear test that the U.S. wants a new United Nations resolution with tougher sanctions adopted by next Monday.

"He [Trump] is not my bride and I'm not his groom".

The conversation between the two leaders came one day after the communist North staged its latest and possibly the most powerful nuclear test so far.
