  • Vladimir Putin takes aim at claims of US election meddling in marathon press conference

The two presidents discussed ways to work together to address North Korea's nuclear and ballistic weapons program, with Mr Putin warning the United States against using force against the rogue nation.

Washington this week said it was ready to talk to North Korea - which has launched several intercontinental ballistic missiles in recent months - "without preconditions".

Nebenzya also returned fire over the US accusation that Russian Federation is not doing enough to resolve the standoff, repeating Moscow's accusation that joint military exercises conducted by the United States and South Korea have contributed to the tensions and should be stopped temporarily while North Korea stops weapons testing to show that both sides are ready to discuss peace.

All-Star Cozart agrees to $38M, 3-year deal with Angels
Andrelton Simmons and Martin Maldonado , both 2017 Gold Glove winners, return to lead the middle of the defense. It would be nice to sign a player such as Cozart who the Reds can rely on as they continue to rebuild.

Former US Ambassador to Russia Michael McFaul said he was shocked by US President Donald Trump's decision to call Russian President Vladimir Putin.

The US political establishment has been wary of any close contacts between the White House and the Kremlin amid the ongoing investigation into alleged Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and allegations that Trump's election team colluded with Moscow. If true, that would contradict Trump's assertion that China is "helping" with the situation. "China's helping, Russia's not helping; we'd like to have Russia's help", Mr Trump said. No, they have another military exercise, and North Korea responded by launching another missile.

Russian Federation shares a border with North Korea and, like China, has an interest in seeing the Korean Peninsula remain divided and US influence in the region contained.

"Continuing to allow North Korean laborers to toil in slave-like conditions inside Russian Federation in exchange for wages used to fund nuclear weapons programs calls into question Russia's dedication as a partner for peace", Tillerson told the United Nations council.

The pair discussed bilateral relations and the situation in the Korean Peninsula during a telephone call, the Kremlin said in a statement this evening.

The Security Council has ratcheted up sanctions on North Korea over its weapons programs since 2006.
