Russian President Vladimir Putin says U.S. security guarantees would probably not be enough to persuade North Korea to shut its nuclear program.

Russian President Vladimir Putin stated this after holding talks with North Korea's leader Kim Jong Un on an island off Pacific city of Vladivostok in Russia today.

Putin said Washington guarantees might need to be supported by the other nations including Russia, China, Japan and South Korea as well as United States and North Korea.

On the occasion, North Korean leader Kim said he and Putin had a fruitful discussion on ways of peaceful settlement of the Korean Peninsula nuclear issue.
