Tokyo hopes that Moscow and Beijing will further contribute to settling the North Korea issue.

Axar.az reports that the role of Russia and China in settling the North Korean nuclear issue is important and cooperation between Japan and these countries will continue in order to put pressure on Pyongyang, Japanese Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga said on Thursday.

"Russia and China are members of the six-party talks [on North Korea] and also members of the UN Security Council, so their role is important. The dialogue with North Korea for the sake of the dialogue is pointless. We will continue to coordinate with Russia and other states and to demand from North Korea to comply with the UNSC resolutions and to refrain from provocations," Suga said at a press conference.

North Korea declared itself a nuclear power in 2005. The United States, Japan and South Korea, as well as Russia and China, took part in talks with North Korea on the denuclearization of the Korean peninsula between 2003 and 2009, when Pyongyang withdrew from the talks.

Tensions around North Korea's activities with both nuclear and non-nuclear weapons have drastically escalated in recent months, after Pyongyang conducted a number of nuclear tests and ballistic missile launches in violation of the UN Security Council's resolutions.
