Russian Federation willing to mediate US-North Korea talks

Russian Federation willing to mediate US-North Korea talks

During their phone conversation earlier in December, US President Donald Trump called on Russian President Vladimir Putin to help solve the North Korean nuclear issue. The UN resolution seeks to ban almost 90 per cent of refined petroleum exports to North Korea by capping them at 500,000 barrels a year. Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, a renowned diplomat known for his no-frills attitude, told reporters that the Kremlin's "readiness to clear the way for de-escalation [in the Korean Peninsula] is obvious", and that Russian Federation should be looked upon as a serious arbiter in the region.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov says he is "united in opinion" with his US counterpart Rex Tillerson on the issue of North Korea but that they differ on how to resolve the crisis over Pyongyang's nuclear weapons program.

Peskov's comments come just days after the UN Security Council unanimously adopted a new set of US-drafted sanctions on North Korea in response to Pyongyang's November 29 ballistic missile test.

Seoul's 2018 prediction, however, comes after it has established a specialized military team that will be ready to deal with the North's nuclear threats. Those sanctions sought to further limit North Korea's access to refined petroleum products and crude oil and its earnings from workers overseas.

Trump says he's not planning to fire special counsel Robert Mueller
It should be noted, however, that Carr's statement fails in a number of respects to respond to points made in Langhoffer's letter. He said the agreement was laid out in June before a lawyer at GSA, Richard Beckler, a Trump appointee, who has since died.

The sanctions are aimed at choking off external sources of funding for North Korea's nuclear weapons and ballistic-missile development programs after repeated tests this year have brought the Asian nation to what experts say is the brink of developing devastating weapons that can be delivered halfway around the world.

In a statement carried by the official KCNA news agency, North Korea said the United States was terrified by its nuclear force and was getting "more and more frenzied in the moves to impose the harshest-ever sanctions and pressure on our country".

The latest round of sanctions was prompted by the November 29 test of what North Korea said was an intercontinental ballistic missile that put the U.S. mainland within range of its nuclear weapons.

Diplomatic relations between the US and North Korea are at historic lows.
