North Korea won't disarm, says Russian delegation to Pyongyang: RIA

North Korea won't disarm, says Russian delegation to Pyongyang: RIA

Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov poured scorn on Washington's call to cut ties with North Korea and introduce new sanctions against it.

He rejected a call by the American envoy to the UN Security Council to sever ties with the North after its latest ballistic missile test.

"China can do this on its own or we can take the oil situation into our own hands", she added.

Trump has praised China - a close ally of Pyongyang - for its efforts to put pressure on North Korea.

A delegation of Russian lawmakers visited North Korea with a friendly visit on November 27 - December 1. "Hard to believe his people, and the military, put up with living in such awful conditions".

At the Council meeting convened at the request of the US, Japan and South Korea, Under Secretary-General Jeffrey Feltman said the missile launched on Wednesday had travelled about 950 kilometres before falling into the sea in Japan's exclusive economic zone.

Mr Lavrov said the way the United States was handling the situation was dangerously provocative.

A spokesman for Russia's foreign ministry this month told ABC News that Russian Federation was meeting all of its sanctions obligations, while also working to develop its relationship with North Korea.

Lavrov said he was referring to joint U.S. The escalation in tensions came as a disappointment for Moscow, which is advocating a "double freeze" approach, in which North Korea halts missile and nuclear tests and the U.S. stops its military maneuvers. And then suddenly ... they announced large-scale exercises in December. "We have the impression that it was all done specially to get Kim Jong Un to "fly off the handle" and take another reckless step".

The air forces of the United States and South Korea are scheduled to hold a regular joint drill early next month with six U.S. F-22 Raptor stealth fighters taking part.

China's deputy United Nations ambassador says the top priority on the Korean Peninsula in view of the current "grave situation" is for all parties to exercise restraint, implement United Nations sanctions "and strive for the early resumption of dialogue and negotiations".

Speaking at the UNSC on Wednesday, Haley warned that North Korea's government will be "utterly destroyed" if a war breaks out.

"We regard this negatively", Lavrov said.

Experts say the designation will be largely symbolic as North Korea is already heavily sanctioned by the United States.

TASS cited Lavrov as saying using force against North Korea would be "playing with fire" and "a big mistake" and that Moscow would do everything it could to avoid such a scenario.

Responding to the USA request for an embargo, the Chinese foreign ministry said merely that the country had "always implemented full, comprehensive, serious and strict resolutions".
