Russian President Vladimir Putin has weighed into the North Korea crisis, warning the United States and others against going down a "dead-end road" and calling for talks to resolve the issue.

In an article published on the Kremlin's website on September 1, Putin obliquely criticized USA warnings of potential military action and said stepping up the pressure on Pyongyang won't solve the problem.

Putin penned a statement published on the Kremlin's website on Friday, ahead of a summit of BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa) nations in China next week.

"The region's problems should only be settled through a direct dialogue of all the parties concerned without any preconditions".

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain's Tweets Reveal a lot Regarding His Move to Chelsea
Oxlade-Chamberlain is out of contract at the end of the season, along with Arsenal team-mates Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil . What's more hard for Arsenal to justify, however, is the manner in which they have allowed the situation to play out.

Russia and China have created a roadmap for a settlement on the Korean Peninsula that is designed to promote the gradual easing of tensions and the creation of a mechanism for lasting peace and security, the Russian leader added.

The warning prompted a threat from North Korea to launch a missile strike on the US Pacific territory of Guam.

Russian Federation voted along with the rest of the U.N. Security Council in imposing stricter sanctions on North Korea following the two missile test launches in July, even though Moscow reject the claims, made by both North Korea and the us, that the rocket tested was a intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM).

Trump said last month Pyongyang would "be met with fire and fury" if it continued to threaten the U.S.

However, "the Bangladeshi authorities need to provide protection - they have a legal obligation not to send people back", he said. ARSA has also taken responsibility for the coordinated attacks on 30 police outposts and an army base that took place on Friday.

This year alone, North Korea has launched at least 13 missiles and some analysts believe it could have viable long-range nuclear missiles before the end of Trump's first term in early 2021.

The U.S. has been talking to North Korea, and paying them extortion money, for 25 years.

September 9 is the anniversary of North Korea's founding and government.

According to the USA military, American Marine Corps F-35B fighter jets based in Japan joined Air Force B-1B bombers from Guam on Wednesday for the first time, flying over parts of South Korea and practicing attack capabilities with South Korean aircraft.
