moscow - The Korean Peninsula 'balances on the verge of a large-scale conflict.' With that warning, Russian President Vladimir Putin, who in an article on the Kremlin website, suggested that he be in favor of negotiations with North Korea.
'It is essential to solve the problems in the region through dialogue with all parties without prior conditions,' said Putin, whose country shares a short border with North Korea. He warned that provocations and aggressive rhetoric do not lead to anything.
North Korea provokes regularly by launching missiles. The country recently fired a projectile flying over Japan and sent threatened missiles to the American island of Guam. US President Donald Trump usually reacts to such provocations with firm language. He recently tweeted that consultation with Pyongyang in his eyes is meaningless.
