Lavrov: The situation on the Korean Peninsula has been brought to a degree of extreme tension

15
The Russian Foreign Minister spoke on the situation on the Korean Peninsula. According to Sergey Lavrov, this situation has reached a degree of extreme tension. Sergey Lavrov notes that the parties are using unacceptable rhetoric and are not ready to take the path of political compromise. At the same time, the Russian Foreign Ministry recalls that earlier Moscow and Beijing proposed a joint option to de-escalate tensions on the Korean Peninsula. A proposal is made in Pyongyang’s simultaneous freezing of nuclear missile tests and the refusal of Washington and Seoul to conduct joint exercises on the peninsula and at its maritime borders. The United States immediately rejected the proposal (more than a month ago). During this time, Pyongyang conducted missile tests and announced the completion of the formation of nuclear missile forces.


Sergey Lavrov quotes RIA News:
The situation on the Korean Peninsula can only be resolved through diplomacy.


Against this background, the United States announced that it would continue sanctions pressure measures against North Korea. One of the measures is the sea blockade of the peninsula.
In the DPRK itself, we recall, the United States calls such a move a frank declaration of war.

Lavrov: The situation on the Korean Peninsula has been brought to a degree of extreme tension


The main Russian Foreign Ministry notes that the sanctions pressure against the DPRK can only lead to a negative security effect. "Stuck into a corner" North Korea can decide on an open military conflict, also taking into account the fact that at its borders there is a build-up of a group of troops whose command does not hide its intentions.

Recall that in February 2018 of the year in South Korea is scheduled for the Olympic Games.

      Exactly, the Americans themselves do not seem to go, and ours trample, although they have removed the team. But this is their own business.

      If you enter into a military alliance with the DPRK, then the United States will not attack! And the Koreans will not need nuclear weapons ... But this is so complicated. It is easier to support sanctions and express concern ...

        Sasha, hello! Unfortunately, our diplomats, alas, are not one of those who were near the "Mr." NO "(A.A. Gromyko)

    US Permanent Representative to the UN Nikki Haley said that the country's team will go to the Olympics in Pyeongchang in full force. I don’t think that the states don’t give a damn about their athletes and they won’t start a massacre on the Korean peninsula, though ... The states can provoke the DPRK in such a way that North Korea responds to the provocation and start a war under the death of its Olympians. Rave? Maybe, but you can expect everything from amers, these do not shun anything.

      Mattresses do not need a reason. We would be sure of our impunity - we would have long ironed North Korea along and across! But the proud Fat Man has argument against the arrogant and unceremonious invasion of the aglovyrodeks, there are no villains and are furious - and you want to and are pricked and a point is not iron. Surprising, as usual, is the slobbery and spineless position of the Russian authorities - almost at our border geeks start a nuclear slaughter, and these malacholny chewing gum in their mouths and mutter something under their breath, instead of: "Well, scat from our borders, jackals, while we didn’t drown all the boats for you and didn’t infect the entire coast with radiation! Look what you’ve thought of, bastards - go here, crap on someone else’s territory. A march to your continent, barges, before it starts! "

    there between the lines "sea blockade" is mentioned ..... I have doubts about the legality, or the "right of the strong" in action !!! .... this is an inflection ............... ...... they are a "de facto" nuclear power. and blocking the sea lanes is the shortest way to verify this.

    Actually, you should know (as someone writes) that until 2001-2002 there was an article in the agreement on mutual assistance between the DPRK and Russia, according to which Russia MANDATORY was to help the North Koreans. However, Russia decided that it was not profitable for her, did not correspond to the interests of Russia.

    But what can you do if Contrary to the opinion of sofas STRATEGS At the Russian leadership, it was decided that IT IS NOT FAVORABLE TO RUSSIA. Yes, how is it, the leadership of Russia DARE AGAINST OPINION OF STRATEGIES of the VO resource do not renew this agreement .....

    Americans themselves fucking the Olympics, dump everything on the DPRK. The invasion and war will immediately begin, the rest of the sheep will follow them (their athletes will also suffer). So the legitimacy of their actions is visualized. What are they waiting for. It would not hurt ours to introduce a fleet with China and India to create a demilitarization zone on the outskirts of the DPRK and lift all sanctions. Fighting a terrorist state (USA) must be done together.
