Russian Federation calls USA threat to destroy North Korea a 'bloodthirsty tirade'

12_01_Putin_Patrushev

U.S. President Donald Trump expressed disappointment in an early morning tweet that a Chinese envoy's recent visit to Pyongyang appeared to have had "no impact" on stopping such provocations.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has said USA comments about North Korea amounted to a "really bloodthirsty tirade".

Last night, the United States warned the UN Security Council that North Korea's latest missile test has brought "the world closer to war".

"A lot of Chinese-North Korean trading companies have already closed shop", said one Chinese businessman in Shenyang who used to trade North Korean coal until it was sanctioned by the United Nations.

U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said he still had confidence in diplomatic efforts on North Korea and that the United States would be "unrelenting" in working through the United Nations.

Evans noted that, ultimately, for China it was important to secure its strategic interests, and that meant stopping USA influence spreading in the region.

North Korea said on Wednesday it had successfully tested a powerful new intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) that put the entire USA mainland within range of its nuclear weapons. According to North Korea's Central News Agency (KCNA), a Hwasong-15 missile covered a distance of 950 kilometers in 53 minutes, reaching an altitude of 4,475 kilometers.

"This administration is focused on one big thing when it comes to North Korea, and that's denuclearization of the Korean peninsula", White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders told a regular White House briefing. "We're really asking them to please restrain more of the oil, not cut it off completely", Tillerson said in remarks at the State Department. China must show leadership and follow through.

Mr Xi said China would like to keep up communications with the USA and all other related parties and "jointly push the nuclear issue toward the direction of peaceful settlement via dialogues and negotiations", according to Xinhua.

Mr Trump has vowed to prevent North Korea from having that capability - using military force if necessary.

"Now we're extremely restricted by the types of trade we can do with North Korea. Condemnations from the U.N. Security Council and the new sanctions that may follow will solve nothing", the article said.
