North Korea: Russia offers to mediate US-Pyongyang dispute


Lavrov disagreed with USA threats of military intervention and further sanctions against North Korea, instead pushing for US diplomacy to seek a more peaceful approach to negotiations, the statement said. In response, North Korea strongly condemned the maneuvers. "Russia's readiness to clear the way for de-escalation is obvious", said spokesperson Dmitry Peskov.

He added he has also discussed key issues on the Russia-U.S. agenda with U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson quite regularly, in addition to bilateral consultations held at the level of experts, and contacts between special services.

The immediate change of the implementation of sanctions for a process of dialogue was also called in the conversation, referring to the new package of sanctions recently passed by the UN Security Council and described as unfair by North Korea.

South Korea predicted today that their hostile neighbours would look to open negotiations with the United States next year in an optimistic outlook for 2018.

The Ministry of Defence said it would assign four units to operate under a new official overseeing North Korea policy, aimed to "deter and respond to North Korea's nuclear and missile threat".


The new sanctions include sharply cutting limits on North Korea's imports of refined oil and orders the repatriation of all North Korean nationals working overseas by the end of 2019.

It said Lavrov underscored the need for "the fastest move to the negotiating process from the language of sanctions".

'Countermeasures will be orchestrated to deal with the effects, including cuts in trade volume and foreign currency inflow, lack of supplies, and reduced production in each part of the economy, ' the report said. Pyongyang claimed that this missile was capable of carrying a nuclear warhead and the entire territory of the U.S. was within its range. But then the United States launched an emergency exercise, which North Korea ignored.

Kim Jong-un interprets this as preparations for invasion.
