Russian Federation condemns North Korean latest missile launch

The country's state media made the announcement Wednesday, hours after leader Kim Jong Un ordered the 3 a.m. local time launch of the Hwasong-15 missile, which reached the highest altitude ever recorded by a North Korean missile.

He called Haley's speech on North Korea, which she made at an emergency U.N. Security Council meeting, "a really bloodthirsty tirade".

U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson urged China Thursday to curb its oil supply to North Korea in the wake of its latest missile launch.

In a tit-for-tat war of words with Korean leader Kim Jong-un, the USA president called Kim a "madman" while the Korea leader dubbed him a "mentally deranged U.S. dotard". "Let them say it directly. then we can take a decision about how to react", said Mr Lavrov. "We do not see any reasonable alternative to it", it said.

Also today, Russian lawmakers who visited Pyongyang said North Korea was not prepared to disarm. However, under pressure from the United States, China in September has agreed to reduce shipments of refined petroleum products to North Korea under 2 million barrels per day. 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.

Meanwhile, Trump's Principal Deputy Press Secretary Raj Shah said: "We'll see future actions by the USA 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". "That's why we are interested in a political and diplomatic solution". "Let them say it directly... then we can take a decision about how to react", said Lavrov, who also rejected calls by Nikki Haley, the USA ambassador to the United Nations, for Russian Federation to cut ties with Pyongyang, stopping the sale of oil products and deporting North Korean workers.

North Korea's state-run Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) claimed the Hwasong-15 was "tipped with super-large heavy warhead which is capable of striking the whole mainland of the US".
