The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation expressed concern about another training launch of a ballistic missile by North Korea violating the UN resolution, and called on all involved parties to the conflict not to allow its further escalation.
On the one hand, the DPRK continues its tests within the nuclear program. At the same time, the concentration of US, Japanese and South Korean military forces in the vicinity of the Korean peninsula is increasing. The South Koreans also allow American missile defense.
The Foreign Ministry condemns this practice, which does not contribute to de-escalation, and also declares that Russia and China are not involved in the activities of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un. On the contrary, it was recalled in the diplomatic mission that the two countries have developed a «road map», which allows for the peaceful negotiation process to be started on the move.
Let’s remind, the ballistic missile «Hwaseong-14» was launched from the territory of the DPRK on 28 July. It was announced that this is a US warning. Later, the US and South Korea did the launches.
