The North Korea nuclear crisis could lead to a global planetary catastrophe, Vladimir Putin warned today.

Speaking after a summit in China, the Russian president condemned the rogue state’s detonation of a hydrogen bomb on Sunday as ‘provocative’.

But he warned against ‘useless and inefficient’ sanctions, saying they could escalate tensions.

‘All of this can lead to a global planetary catastrophe and a great number of victims,’ he said.

His comments at a BRICS summit in Xiamen came after North Korea reportedly moved an intercontinental ballistic missile to its coast amid warnings from the US that Kim Jong-un is ‘begging for war’.

Mr Putin called for talks with North Korea, and warned against ‘military hysteria’.

He said it was important that all parties, including North Korea, should not face ‘threats of annihilation’ and ‘step on the path of cooperation’.

The Russian leader added: ‘Whipping up military hysteria makes absolutely no sense in this situation. This is a road to nowhere.’

This morning, South Korean media claimed Pyongyang had started moving a rocket towards the country’s west coast on Monday, using the cover of darkness to avoid surveillance.

The US is pushing for the ‘strongest possible measures’ on the rogue nation following its sixth and most powerful nuclear test – but China and Russia are likely to oppose UN sanctions.
