  • Russian Foreign Ministry we are not supporters of military expansion

The UN resolution seeks to ban almost 90 per cent of refined petroleum exports to North Korea by capping them at 500,000 barrels a year.

In a statement issued by the Russian Foreign Ministry, Lavrov said that the regional tensions with the aggressive policy of the United States against North Korea must halt, as well as the increased presence of war exercises.

Russia's Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has ruled out the deployment of additional military bases overseas, including in Latin America, despite an increase in military campaigns in recent years. The law also calls for a report on the possible impact of imposing restrictions on the purchase of Russian government debt by USA investors.

Russian Federation has reiterated its call for the United States and North Korea to start a negotiations process with the ultimate aim of resolving the nuclear crisis. "As the exchange of confrontational rhetoric is between Pyongyang and Washington, therefore Russia's readiness is rather evident to open the way for de-escalating tensions".


The United Nations Security Council on Friday unanimously voted to slap harsher sanctions on North Korea in response to its latest intercontinental ballistic missile test. Lavrov and Tillerson also discussed bilateral issues, in which tensions increased, particularly after the implementation of various packages of USA sanctions against Russian Federation in the recent months.

US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un have been trading words against each other as the country slowly inches towards achieving nuclear missile capability.

Russian Federation and China on Monday sought for a peaceful resolution to the tensions surrounding North Korea's nuclear and ballistic missile activity.

While Tillerson voiced support for opening diplomatic dialogue between the two states, Trump said he would not take part in any talks with Pyongyang unless the isolated state agreed to give up its pursuit of nuclear weapons.
