Protesters shout slogans during a rally against the deployment of an advanced USA missile defense system called Terminal High-Altitude Area Defense, or THAAD, near the presidential Blue House in Seoul, South Korea, Friday, Sept. 8, 2017.
During an economic summit in Vladivostok, Russia, Mr Moon urged Mr Putin and Chinese President Xi Jinping to play a role in stopping North Korea's nuclear and missile provocations.
"It is far bigger than past (North Korean) nuclear tests", said Onodera.
Putin called for all parties with a stake in the stability of the Korean Peninsula to support the Russian-Chinese road map, which involves resuming talks that would bring North Korea, China, Russia, Japan, South Korea and the U.S.to the negotiating table.
Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, who was also in Vladivostok to discuss North Korea with Moon and Putin, said on Wednesday he wanted the North to understand it has "no bright future" if it continues on its current path. A THAAD battery is known to require at least six rocket launchers, also involving a fire control and communications unit.
South Korea deployed the four additional THAAD launchers to the US Forces Korea (USFK) base in Seongju early Thursday, just four days after Pyongyang launched its sixth and most powerful nuclear test.
Calls have grown in South Korea, including through lawsuits, to demand Japanese companies compensate Korean laborers for their work before and during World War II.
China has been quick to criticize Seoul's decision, raising concerns that it will carry out further economic retribution against South Korean entities operating in the country.
North Korea to launch ICBM Saturday, South Korea prime minister says
China and Russian Federation have strenuously opposed the THAAD deployment, viewing it as aimed at bolstering Washington's military presence in the region and undermining their security interests.
North Korea fired the ICBMs at highly lofted angles in July to reduce ranges and avoid other countries, but South Korean officials said the next launches could be conducted at angles close to operational as the North would test whether the warheads survive the harsh conditions of atmospheric re-entry and detonate properly.
At a joint news conference following his meeting with Mr Moon, Mr Putin condemned North Korea's tests, calling Pyongyang's missile and nuclear programme a "crude violation of UN Security Council resolutions" that "undermines the non-proliferation regime and creates a threat to the security of north-eastern Asia".
Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang reiterated China's opposition to the system, saying it could only "severely damage" regional security and raise "tensions and antagonism".
South Korean officials said they were watching for radioactive fallout from the test and for signs of preparations for more activity. American strategists regard domination of the vast Eurasian land mass as the key to USA global hegemony and China as the chief obstacle to that goal.
After a meeting between Trump and his top military and national security advisers, US Defence Secretary James "Mad Dog" Mattis warned North Korea that it faced "a massive military response" to any threat to the US or its allies.
Putin also called for the re-implementation of global law and dialogue among concerned parties over the North Korea issue.
