Fear that a military conflict may break soon out between North Korea and the USA have heightened tensions, and there is concern that Russian Federation may simply be paying lip service to United Nations sanctions.
It added that the navy said the maneuvers were a show of the country's "resolve to retaliate against North Korea's provocations".
Putin went on to argue that US interventions in Iraq and Libya have convinced Kim Jong-un, the North Korean leader, that nuclear weapons are a necessary deterrent.
Mr Putin's comments came after North Korea was seen moving what appeared to be an intercontinental ballistic missile towards its west coast, a report said. "Everyone knows that and everyone in North Korea knows that". Given the situation and the pace at which it has been deteriorating, President Trump's failure to assure that the USA will NOT respond in kind, by launching an attack, has only served to cause further concerns.
"The escalation of military hysteria will not do any good".
"One should not succumb to emotions and drive North Korea into a corner".
Both Russia and the US have been trading diplomatic volleys, mostly expressed in kicking out some of the other country's envoys and diplomatic staff.
At the news conference on Wednesday, Putin also reiterated Moscow and Beijing's calls for the US and North Korea to avoid escalatory rhetoric, skepticism of the need for further sanctions, and support for a "parallel freeze" of DPRK testing and U.S.
A Defense Ministry senior official said there was a low possibility that the United States would attack North Korea, which is equipped with nuclear arms.
The United States has floated the idea of requiring all countries to cut economic links with North Korea to try to strong-arm Pyongyang into changing its behaviour.
The White House stressed the US and Chinese leaders' joint commitment to ridding the Korean Peninsula of nuclear weapons.
Moon also revealed that the two countries have agreed to establish bodies to aid bilateral trade and investment, saying that the Russian Fareast is a "land of opportunity" should Russian's natural resources and Korea's advanced technologies are brought together.
"I believe that President Xi agrees with me 100%", Trump told reporters after the 45-minute conversation.
Meanwhile, South Korean Defence Minister Song Young Moo and his Japanese counterpart Itsunori Onodera affirmed close bilateral cooperation against the North in a phone call yesterday, agreeing to work with the U.S. to immediately enforce upcoming United Nations resolutions.
