US Asks China To Cut Off Oil Supply To North Korea

"We perceived this negatively", Lavrov told journalists in the Belarusian capital, Minsk, commenting on Washington's statement on the need to cut ties with North Korea. Mr Lavrov said Ms Haley's call for the world to isolate North Korea was wrong.

Russia's top diplomat ripped into the US on Friday for its "bloodthirsty tirade" against North Korea in the wake of the reclusive nation's latest ballistic missile test on Tuesday and warned any military action would be a "big mistake".

Speaking at the UNSC on Wednesday, Haley warned that North Korea's government will be "utterly destroyed" if a war breaks out.

The Russians - who, according to Armstrong, "realize that the U.S.is increasingly isolated on the North Korean issue" - are also strengthening their alignment with China, North Korea's top trading partner. "We have already said many times that sanctions pressure has exhausted itself".

Russian Federation is setting the stage for sidelining the United States in the North Korean nuclear crisis that has been escalating for roughly four months, during which the administration of President Donald Trump has relied primarily on threats of total annihilation, sanctions, and name-calling.

"China can do this on its own or we can take the oil situation into our own hands", she added.

Strong quake off New Caledonia
At the time of agency said small tsunami waves were observed in New Caledonia perhaps, the danger had largely passed away. Although the Australia and New Zealand authorities said there were no tsunami threats to any of these countries.

He said they are ready to 'sit down with the Americans at a negotiating table and solve everything peacefully'.

"It's as if the recent actions of the U.S. are consciously directed to provoke Pyongyang towards other radical actions".

China could control North Korea's regime but doesn't see the need to do so - at least not yet, says a USA senator.

He urged the acceptance of a proposal made jointly by China and Russian Federation that would require North Korea to suspend nuclear activity and the US and South Korea to halt joint military exercises in order to pave the way for talks. China's Deputy Permanent Representative Wu Haitao in effect rejected any new sanctions suggested by Haley, saying that Beijing was committed to finding a diplomatic solution.

He also complained that the United States was "totally ignoring" a U.N. demand for talks with North Korea.
