Russian FM: Haley's North Korea statement 'bloodthirsty'

"By doing this, North Korea has caused China to lose face and it just shows that North Korea is not behaving in a way that keeps its allies in mind", she said.

Washington called on nations to cut relations with Pyongyang and warned that North Korea's leadership will be "utterly destroyed" if war breaks out.

"We see this negatively", he told journalists in the Belarusian capital Minsk.

Tensions have been on the rise on the Korean Peninsula in recent months as Pyongyang keeps pursuing its nuclear program and missile testing despite worldwide sanctions and condemnation, while the USA and its allies intensify drills near the North Korean borders.

United States military action against North Korea would be a big mistake, Sergey Lavrov, Russian Foreign Minister, warned, adding that Washington is itself provoking Pyongyang to make new reckless moves by drills with South Korea and aggressive rhetoric.

Lavrov's remarks come on the same day as a Russian delegation returning from Pyongyang said North Korea would not give up its nuclear weapons.

"According to North Korean representatives, they were forced to demonstrate the ability to adequately respond to any aggression from the US, the ability to strike at any territory of America".

Also today, Russian lawmakers who visited Pyongyang said North Korea was not prepared to disarm.

US President Donald Trump derided Kim as a "sick puppy" and threatened "major" new sanctions. A group of Russian MPs, who visited Pyongyang earlier this week, said that the North Korean side expressed readiness to engage in talks, but demanded that Moscow play a mediating role.

According to the minister, Pyongyang has refrained from launching missiles for over two months prior to the latest launch on Wednesday. "No one can doubt that this threat is growing".

During the subsequent, combative session of the UNSC, Haley called on North Korea's neighbors to do more to enforce sanctions, while Russia's representative Vasily Nebenzia criticised Washington's use of sanctions and military exercises in the region.
