Russian Federation rejects USA call to cut North Korea ties

Russian Federation rejects USA call to cut North Korea ties

China has proposed that the North stop missile and nuclear tests in exchange for a freeze of U.S. military exercises - a suggestion Washington has repeatedly rejected.

The US has been consciously provoking North Korea to take action, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov alleged after Pyongyang's latest ballistic missile test. Moscow suspects the US wants a pretext to attack North Korea, he said. He advocated negotiations instead. The Americans, he said, "should explain to us all what they're after". If they are really looking for an excuse to destroy North Korea, as the United States envoy to the UN said at a Security Council meeting, let them spell it out clearly and let the USA leadership confirm it.

Haley called on all nations to sever all ties with North Korea and continued with the warnings saying if China did not cut off its oil supply to North Korea, the US would "take the oil situation into our own hands", suggesting further escalation of tensions in the region.

"But the Americans completely ignore this requirement and I consider this a big mistake".

Haley sternly warned North Korea's leadership saying it would be "utterly destroyed" if war were to break out. Haley accused Kim Jong Un of bringing the world "closer to war" with its recent missile test. "And if war comes, make no mistake, the North Korean regime will be utterly destroyed".




"We now turn to (China's) President Xi (Jinping) to also take that stand", she said.

Mr Trump, in a tweet, said yesterday that China appeared to have had little impact on the North Korean leader, expressing wonder that his people and military "put up" with conditions there.

Last month President Donald Trump said that Russian Federation was hurting USA efforts to disarm the North Korea of its nuclear weapons. Gen. Shao Yuanming and the US Defense Department's Lt. Gen Richard Clarke discussed ways to improve communication channels regarding the situation on the Korean Peninsula, the South China Morning Post reports.

"The U.S. role is diminishing at the expense of China's expansion, and the more that the U.S.is seen as an unreliable ally, a unsafe provocateur, the more China looks like a reasonable grownup in the region, even though there's a great deal of distrust of China by many Asian countries", said Armstrong.

Kim said the test of the Hwasong-15 weapons system had helped his country achieve the goal of becoming a full nuclear power, sparking global condemnation.
