Lavrov Claims US Trying To Provoke North Korean Leadership

Share

China and Russian Federation are among the few states with which North Korea still has good relations.

The Russian minister said in Minsk that the United States and South Korea should refrain from holding joint military exercises planned for December.

Meanwhile, Trump's Principal Deputy Press Secretary Raj Shah said: "We'll see future actions by the United States and others and we're looking forward to applying as much pressure as we can to get to our ultimate goal, which is a denuclearised Korean Peninsula".

North Korea said the new missile soared to an altitude of about 4,475 km (2,780 miles) - more than 10 times the height of the International Space Station - and flew 950 km (590 miles) during its 53-minute flight. Haley said that President Donald Trump had called Xi and asked him to cut off oil supplies to North Korea.

China is a historic ally and North Korea's most important trading partner, and Pyongyang is thought to depend on China for much of its oil supplies.

Tillerson's call came after the USA ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, issued a stark warning to the UN Security Council.

Disheartening to hear that the nomination made by me was initially accepted & later when I left, has been announced as invalid. He did not respond to further questions. "No, it (Vishal's representation challenging the rejection) is under process".

"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.

In a speech in Missouri about taxes, Trump, who has traded insults with the North in the past, referred to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un with a derisive nickname.

Tillerson's remarks echo those made on Wednesday by US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley, who stressed that the nations of the world "have it within our power to further isolate, diminish and, God willing, reverse the risky course of the North Korean regime".

But her call for nations to "cut off all ties with North Korea" was rejected by Moscow, with Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov saying Russian Federation saw the proposal "negatively".

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".

If they seek a pretext to destroy North Korea, they should openly say so and the US leadership should confirm it.

Kim said the test of the Hwasong-15 weapons system had helped his country achieve the goal of becoming a full nuclear power, sparking global condemnation.

"And I think that they should have a clear understanding", says Gaffney, "that the cost the Chinese will face will rise inexorably, and quite acutely, if they don't take that step".

Beijing has backed a slew of sanctions that include bans on imports of North Korean coal, iron ore and seafood. Lavrov also accused the USA military of staging war games to incite the North.

"We are already seeing signs of problems, of cashflow problems in North Korea". The current South Korean government, eager for an opportunity to engage with the North, is also likely to climb on board.

One of the problems is that once rates reach rock bottom (which is pretty well where they are right now) the only way is up. This could be a good time for more young Americans to take out a Roth Individual Retirement Account or IRA for short.
