Russian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Maria Zakharova slammed the militarisation of the Korean Peninsula, noting that Moscow is «disappointed» with North Korea's «apparent disregard for the global non-proliferation regime», at a press briefing in Moscow, Friday.
Zakharova stressed that the North Korean crisis has «deteriorated substantially» following Pyongyang's September 3 announcement of the... Еще sixth nuclear test, adding that Moscow is «disappointed» with the DPRK's «apparent disregard for the global non-proliferation regime and the relevant UN Security Council resolutions».
However, the Russian foreign ministry spokesperson argued that «the policy of maximising pressure on the DPRK, including sanctions, has exhausted itself.» She went on to note that «there is no alternative» to the Russian-Chinese roadmap for the Korean settlement, which she said «is open to new proposals and additions».
Commenting on the recent FBI search conducted at a Russian diplomatic facilities in the US, Zakharova rhetorically asked how such actions could help normalise bilateral relations between the two countries, adding, «Who has sent them there and with what purpose? What are they doing there? Why they are feeling like home there? This is a property of the Russian Federation. What are US citizens doing there?»
Last week, FBI officials inspected the offices of the Russian Consulate General in San Francisco just before its closure along with a chancery annex in Washington DC and a Russian consular annex in New York City, according to the executive order. The move came after Moscow ordered a reduction of US diplomatic staff in Russia in response to additional US sanctions.
On September 3, North Korea ran its sixth nuclear test. Pyongyang reportedly tested an advanced hydrogen bomb for a long-range missile.
