new york - Russia has asked North Korea to stop nuclear testing and, in turn, called on the United States and South Korea not to hold any (joint) military exercises in December.
'A very explosive situation could therefore escalate further,' according to UN Ambassador for Russia Vassily Nebenzia at the UN Security Council on the last missile test of North Korea.
Nebenzia: ' We advise all parties involved to stop this negative spiral of tension. It is very important to take a step back now and carefully weigh the consequences of each action. '
On Tuesday, North Korea carried out another missile test after two months. According to Pyongyang, it is the most advanced test to date. The tested ballistic missile is able to reach the US. The US and South Korea often reacted in the past with a military display of power after North Korea fired a missile.
