Russian FM: Haley's North Korea statement 'bloodthirsty'

04 December, 2017, 02:00 | Author: Diane Mills
  • A man looks at a TV screen broadcasting news of North Korea's missile launch in Tokyo Wednesday Nov. 29 2017. After 2 months of relative peace North Korea launched its most powerful weapon yet early Wednesday a presumed intercontinental ballist

Haley earlier this week warned North Korea's leadership it would be "utterly destroyed" if war were to break out after Pyongyang test fired its most advanced missile, putting the U.S. mainland within range, in violation of UN Security Council resolutions.

Later, addressing a Rome conference, Lavrov said Russian Federation and the United States both wanted North Korea to disarm, but said Washington would send a bad message if it walked away from a 2015 nuclear deal with Iran.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov slammed on Friday US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley's recent remarks regarding North Korea.

Addressing an emergency meeting of the UN Security Council late on November 29, Haley called on other nations to cut diplomatic and trade ties with Pyongyang.

"While condemning Pyongyang's nuclear missile adventurism, we can not but condemn the provocative behavior of our American colleagues", Lavrov said in an interview with Belarusian broadcaster STV.

Lavrov pointed to Washington's plans to conduct a large- scale air force drill with South Korea in December, a new show of force aimed at the Kim regime, saying the U.S. would be better off if it tried to hold negotiations instead.

"Unfortunately, in the last couple of months there has been an impression that there are people in Washington who are trying to provoke Pyongyang to make new reckless moves at any cost", the minister said. "In October, they announced large-scale unscheduled exercises [between US and South Korean forces], new drills are also announced in December - although in the regular context they shouldn't have been conducted until spring", he added.

Russian Federation and China have proposed a roadmap for settling the Korean crisis through a transition to negotiations, which implies rejection of any actions that fuel tensions. They said that the North Korean side expressed readiness to engage in talks, but demanded that Moscow play a mediating role.

"We met with Kim Yong Nam, president of the Presidium of the Supreme People's Assembly of North Korea", Pashin said.
