  • Russian Federation rejects United States call to cut ties with N Korea

Tensions on the Korean peninsula have flared since North Korea said on Wednesday that it had successfully tested a new intercontinental ballistic missile in a "breakthrough" that puts the USA mainland within range of its nuclear weapons.

The missile was topped with a "super-large heavy warhead" and is capable of striking the USA mainland, according to reports from North Korea's state-run Korean Central News Agency. The U.S. already imposed unilateral sanctions on Pyongyang, but these seem to have failed to make any difference in the regime's plans for turning into a nuclear power.

"We were encouraged by that approach".

Russia Thursday rejected a U.S. call to cut ties with Pyongyang, suggesting Washington has been doing everything to prompt North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un to "lose it".

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

"We need China to do more", she said.

Russia's maneuvering into the North Korea crisis is more than just a single-serving of humiliation for the United States - it's indicative, said Armstrong, of a larger trend.




According to him, it is said in the last steps of the United States.

The secretary stressed that Russian Federation will not allow military action against North Korea, after the U.S. diplomat at the United Nations threatened Pyongyang with destruction.

"We have got to take them at their word, so this could be a global conflict".

"First thing, President Donald Trump's strangulation campaign, to cut off money flows to North Korea will actually have a great effect on the regime".

Haley said that many countries have made economic sacrifices to enforce strict sanctions against North Korea and put the main task of containing Pyongyang on China's shoulders.

China, meanwhile, unveiled its powerful new DF-41 intercontinental ballistic missile, likely ready for deployment in 2018, the timing of which Armstrong said could be meant to "both, dissuade the North Koreans from continuing down this path and to tell the Americans that the Chinese are dealing with it in their own way".

He also complained that the United States was "totally ignoring" a U.N. demand for talks with North Korea.
