    Russian President Vladimir Putin and Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe agreed that North Korean nuclear tests are inadmissible, media reported on Friday.

    TOKYO (Sputnik) — According to the Japanese Kyodo News, the sides pledged to cooperate on the issue in the UN Security Council.

    On January 6, Pyongyang claimed it had successfully tested a hydrogen bomb, triggering a wave of condemnation from the international community.

    The United Nations previously imposed sanctions on North Korea for three tests it carried out in 2006, 2009 and 2013.
