Vladivostok, Russia (CNN) Russian President Vladimir Putin told an economic forum Thursday that the United States could be playing into North Korea's hands by trying to ramp up pressure on Pyongyang.

"It's counterproductive to inflate this military hysteria. This leads nowhere," Putin said, speaking alongside South Korean President Moon Jae-in, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and Mongolian President Khaltmaa Battulga at the Eastern Economic Forum in the far eastern Russian city of Vladivostok.

The Russian leader has been unusually outspoken about North Korea and how the global community should respond in the wake of that country's sixth nuclear test on Sunday.
