Russian President Vladimir Putin said Thursday April 25th that North Korea needs security guarantees and that denuclearisation could only be achieved through international law, AFP has reported.

North Korea "needs guarantees of its security, the preservation of its sovereignty," Putin said after talks with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

"We need to restore the power of international law, to return to a state where international law, not the law of the strongest, determines the situation in the world."
