North Korea: Russia offers to mediate US-Pyongyang dispute

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov

Peskov's remarks on Tuesday are not unusual for Moscow, as the Kremlin has long held the position that the USA and North Korea should move toward diplomatic talks. You can't strangle North Korea. "Russia's readiness to clear the way for de-escalation is obvious", said spokesperson Dmitry Peskov.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov told state-run media that no one wants to see war on the Korean Peninsula and that he hopes the United States is not planning a military approach to resolving the situation.

Peskov's comments come just days after the UN Security Council unanimously adopted a new set of US-drafted sanctions on North Korea in response to Pyongyang's November 29 ballistic missile test.

'Their plan is to put a satellite equipped with cameras and telecommunication devices into orbit'.

So far, Trump has said he is not willing to negotiate with North Korea until its leaders abandon their nuclear weapons program.




"North Korea will seek negotiation with United States, while continuing to pursue its effort to be recognized as a de facto nuclear-possessing country", according to a report released by South Korea's Unification Ministry, which reportedly did not provide any reasons to support its conclusion. Those sanctions sought to further limit North Korea's access to refined petroleum products and crude oil and its earnings from workers overseas.

The latest round of sanctions was prompted by the November 29 test of what North Korea said was an intercontinental ballistic missile that put the United States mainland within range of its nuclear weapons. Lavrov and Tillerson also discussed bilateral issues, in which tensions increased, particularly after the implementation of various packages of US sanctions against Russian Federation in the recent months.

"It was underlined that it is necessary to move from the language of sanctions to the negotiating process as soon as possible".

Kim Jong-un interprets this as preparations for invasion.
