MOSCOW, May 26 (Sputnik) – All actors, including the United States, admit that attempts to solve the situation around North Korea’s nuclear program by military means are destructive, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said Friday.
“The destructiveness of military scenario attempts is recognized by all. I would like to note in this connection the recent statements by US Defense Secretary [James] Mattis, who directly said that the use of force to resolve the problems of the Korean Peninsula would be destructive and catastrophic,” Lavrov said after talks with Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi.
