Mr Moon had called for Moscow to support stronger sanctions against Pyongyang, which conducted its sixth nuclear test on Sunday in what it claimed was a detonation of a thermonuclear weapon built for intercontinental ballistic missiles capable of reaching the USA mainland.

Seoul's Defense Ministry said Wednesday that four launchers and construction equipment will be moved to the former golf course where the Terminal High-Altitude Area Defense system has been set up.

President Moon ordered officials to consult with the US on the temporary deployment of the four additional THAAD launchers, following the North's launch of a Hwasong-14 intercontinental ballistic missile on July 28th.

South Korea said on Monday it will temporarily deploy four remaining launchers for a U.S. THAAD missile defence system after the completion of an environmental assessment by the government. The police tried to disperse the protesters, but some of them attempted to entry the building, which prompted the clashes.

The four remaining launchers have been on standby at an unidentified US base in South Korea, pending the alliance's decision. There are now two THAAD launchers in operation at the Seongju base.

Ahead of the meeting with Mr Putin, he said the situation could get out of hand if North Korea's missile and nuclear tests are not stopped.

In Beijing, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang expressed grave concerns over the planned additional installation as he urged South Korea and the U.S.to withdraw the THAAD system.

In a flurry of phone calls with world leaders, President Donald Trump took a tough line against negotiating with North Korea as the communist country's latest nuclear test exposed stark differences among global leaders for containing the threat.

Putin made the remarks Wednesday after meeting with South Korean President Moon Jae-in in Vladivostok, Russia.

Japanese prime minister Shinzo Abe, who will meet Mr Putin in Vladivostok on Thursday, said before his departure from Japan: "We must make North Korea understand there is no bright future for the country if it pursues the current path".

Tensions between the USA and North Korea threaten to have devastating consequences for South Korea. He said it "offers a genuine way to defuse the tensions and a step-by-step settlement".
