US Asks China To Cut Off Oil Supply To North Korea

US Asks China To Cut Off Oil Supply To North Korea

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov says that America's threat to destroy North Korea should war break out is "a bloodthirsty tirade" and a big mistake.

'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, ' Lavrov said.

"We condemn this launch and hope that all relevant parties will be able to remain calm that is very necessary to avoid worst-case scenario on the Korean Peninsula", Peskov was quoted as saying by Russia's official news agency TASS.

Meanwhile, Trump's Principal Deputy Press Secretary Raj Shah said: "We'll see future actions by the United States and others and we're looking forward to applying as much pressure as we can to get to our ultimate goal, which is a denuclearised Korean Peninsula".

Russia Thursday rejected a U.S. call to cut ties with Pyongyang, suggesting Washington has been doing everything to prompt North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un to "lose it". 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.

"Americans must first of all explain to us what they are trying to achieve", Lavrov added.

The Russians - who, according to Armstrong, "realize that the U.S.is increasingly isolated on the North Korean issue" - are also strengthening their alignment with China, North Korea's top trading partner.

"We were encouraged by that approach".

"China can do this on its own", Haley said in a speech at the United Nations, "or we can take the oil situation into our own hands".

Tillerson's remarks echo those made on Wednesday by US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley, who stressed that the nations of the world "have it within our power to further isolate, diminish and, God willing, reverse the risky course of the North Korean regime".

Mr Lavrov said the way the USA was handling the situation was dangerously provocative.

"That was the most effective tool the last time the North Koreans came to the table, was cutting the oil off", Tillerson said, referring to the denuclearization talks that began after China suspended its oil supply in 2003. "That's why we are interested in a political and diplomatic solution".

North Korea claimed the new Hwasong-15 missile soared to an altitude of about 2,780 miles (4,475 km) and flew 590 miles (950km) during its 53-minute flight before landing in the sea new Japan.
