Russia helps North Korea to find a ‘peaceful resolution’ to nuclear missile crisis

Moscow is prepared to work with Pyongyang to try to find a peaceful resolution to the North Korean missile crisis, the Russian Foreign ministry said on Friday.

The Russian Foreign Ministry made the announcement in a statement after a meeting between Russian ambassador-at-large Oleg Burmistrov and Choe Son-hui, director-general of the North American department of North Korea’s Foreign Ministry.

Choe also met with Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Igor Morgulov, the ministry said.

“The Russian side confirmed its readiness to combine efforts in the interests of finding ways to solve the problems in the region by peaceful, political and diplomatic means,” it said.

Earlier in the day it was reported that any attempt by North Korea to fire a missile at the United States may force the US military to destroy a nuclear warhead over Russian territory, as this would be the likeliest trajectory of a missile.

Tensions have recently significantly risen between North Korea and the US. The latter flew bombers over waters east of North Korea on September 23, and Pyongyang said afterwards that it had every right to shoot down those planes.
