Lavrov: US is provoking North Korea into taking 'extreme measures'”

Speaking moments after Haley made the call, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov while fielding questions from journalists in the Belarusian capital, Minsk, said; "We perceived this negatively".

The US has urged all nations to cut diplomatic and trade ties with North Korea after its latest intercontinental ballistic missile test and warned that if it comes to war, the rogue regime will be "totally destroyed".

Russian Federation yesterday accused the United States of trying to provoke North Korean leader Kim Jong Un into "flying off the handle" over his missile programme to hand Washington a pretext to destroy his country.

"We condemn this launch and hope that all relevant parties will be able to remain calm that is very necessary to avoid worst-case scenario on the Korean Peninsula", Peskov was quoted as saying by Russia's official news agency TASS.

U.S. President Donald Trump said in October he would not certify that Tehran was complying with the 2015 deal and warned he might ultimately terminate it, accusing Iran of "not living up to the spirit" of the accord.

Haley called on all nations to sever all ties with North Korea and continued with the warnings saying if China did not cut off its oil supply to North Korea, the USA would "take the oil situation into our own hands", suggesting further escalation of tensions in the region.

The Russians - who, according to Armstrong, "realize that the U.S.is increasingly isolated on the North Korean issue" - are also strengthening their alignment with China, North Korea's top trading partner.

China provides about 90 percent of North Korea's energy needs and a year ago shipped around 6,000 barrels per day to Pyongyang. The regime has claimed it can now strike the entire US mainland with a "super-large heavy warhead". And then suddenly ... they announced large-scale exercises in December.

Microsoft unveils plan for Redmond HQ expansion
A bridge across WA-520, which will link both sides of its campus, will be for cyclists and walkers only. That transportation emphasis is perhaps the biggest difference from the expansion plan a decade ago.

In September, Lavrov explained, the American colleagues hinted that the next exercises are only expected in the spring, Pyongyang can take a pause and also "not to make any sudden movements", and why in this situation not to try to establish a dialogue.

This willingness to negotiate comes only on the condition North Korea recognised as a nuclear power, something the United States has not been prepared to do.

"In nine months or so I think that the President's plan will have a great effect".

"We have repeatedly stated that the pressure of sanctions has been exhausted". We do think they could do more with the oil.
