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

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

"We always think that this is going to be a conflict with the United States and South Korea and Japan on one side and North Korea on the other".

"We have never sought war with North Korea, and still today we do not seek it".

Haley said that many countries have made economic sacrifices to enforce strict sanctions against North Korea and put the main task of containing Pyongyang on China's shoulders.

"And I think that they should have a clear understanding", says Gaffney, "that the cost the Chinese will face will rise inexorably, and quite acutely, if they don't take that step".

Russian Federation is setting the stage for sidelining the United States in the North Korean nuclear crisis that has been escalating for roughly four months, during which the administration of President Donald Trump has relied primarily on threats of total annihilation, sanctions, and name-calling.

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. "China can do this on its own, or we can take the oil situation into our own hands". Explaining the importance of an oil embargo, she said that when China cut off oil supplies to that country in 2003, Pyongyang came to the negotiating table. 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.

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.

Mr Chang, the author of Nuclear Showdown, said China and Russian Federation could join the side of North Korea in a potential war. "That's why we are interested in a political and diplomatic solution".

North Korea also published photographs of the new ICBM.
