North Korea is United States problem but China's 'leverage'

USA ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley, on Wednesday called on all countries to sever relations with Pyongyang, including cutting trade links and expelling North Korean workers.

Haley sternly warned North Korea's leadership saying it would be "utterly destroyed" if war were to break out.

RUSSIAN Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov has rejected the USA call to cut ties with North Korea after Pyongyang launched ballistic missiles on Wednesday.

"The latest USA actions look created to deliberately provoke Pyongyang into taking new extreme action", Mr Lavrov told reporters in Belarus, according to a Russian Foreign Ministry transcript. Haley accused Kim Jong Un of bringing the world "closer to war" with its recent missile test. "We basically share the border with them". Haley said that President Donald Trump had called Xi and asked him to cut off oil supplies to North Korea.

Talks between Russian and North Korean officials came after the launch of the rogue state's longest-range missile this week.

"We regard this negatively", Lavrov said. 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.


He urged the acceptance of a proposal made jointly by China and Russian Federation that would require North Korea to suspend nuclear activity and the US and South Korea to halt joint military exercises in order to pave the way for talks.

-South Korea military exercises planned for December, which he said "look created to deliberately provoke Pyongyang into taking new extreme action".

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.

In its response to the U.S. request for an embargo, the Chinese Foreign Ministry said the country had "always implemented full, comprehensive, serious and strict resolutions".

While speaking at an emergency U.N. Security Council meeting, Haley said; "We have never sought war with North Korea, and still today we do not seek it".
