Russian FM slams Nikki Haley, calls her North Korea comments 'bloodlust'

North Korea 'morally ready' for nuclear war

Speaking during a visit to Rome, the Russian foreign minister condemned comments from Ambassador Nikki Haley who said the North Korean regime would be "utterly destroyed" in the event of a conflict.

"If someone really wants to use force to, as the USA representative to the United Nations put it, destroy North Korea.then I think that is playing with fire and a big mistake", the Russian foreign minister warned.

Later, addressing a Rome conference, Lavrov said Russian Federation and the United States both wanted North Korea to disarm, but said Washington would send a bad message if it walked away from a 2015 nuclear deal with Iran.

But Pyongyang's latest ICBM infuriated United States supremo Donald Trump who may push for military action over entering diplomatic talks.

He continued to say that Ms Haley's speech to the UN Security Council meeting was "a really bloodthirsty tirade".

He added: 'We will do everything to ensure that [the use of force] doesn't happen so that the problem is decided only using peaceful and political-diplomatic means'.

He told Yemenis all across the country that if they support him, "to defend the nation, the republic and the revolution".

"It's as if the recent actions of the USA are consciously directed to provoke Pyongyang towards other radical actions".

Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov poured scorn on Washington's call to cut ties with North Korea and introduce new sanctions against it.

"China and Russian Federation have a common stance on the Korean Peninsula issue, maintaining contact with each other".

Lavrov reiterated that in September, the USA made it clear that the next military exercises with South Korea were not to come until spring.

Lavrov also reminded of the roadmap, jointly developed by Russian Federation and China, which implied rejection of any actions that fuel tensions and transition to negotiations.

"We met with Kim Yong Nam, president of the Presidium of the Supreme People's Assembly of North Korea", Pashin said. They said that the North Korean side expressed readiness to engage in talks, but demanded that Moscow play a mediating role.
