North Korea Nuclear Crisis: Putin Calls Sanctions Useless
Russian President Vladimir Putin has said pursuing further sanctions against North Korea is "useless", saying "they'd rather eat grass than give up their nuclear programme".
The US said on Monday it would table a new UN resolution on tougher sanctions in the wake of the latest test of a nuclear bomb by the North on Sunday. Mr Putin also said that the ramping up of "military hysteria" could lead to global catastrophe.
He said diplomacy was the only answer.
