The call was rejected by Russian Federation on Thursday as it accused Washington of provoking Pyongyang into stepping up its nuclear missile programme.
RUSSIAN Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov has rejected the United States call to cut ties with North Korea after Pyongyang launched ballistic missiles on Wednesday. He advocated negotiations instead.
He said: "North Korea will be risky in about nine months or so because then two things are going to happen at the same time".
Mr Lavrov said the way the USA was handling the situation was dangerously provocative.
"We have never sought war with North Korea, and still today we do not seek it".
"We regard this negatively", Lavrov said.
Russian politician Vitaly Pashin, who attended the meetings, said 'North Korea believes they have achieved their goal of becoming a nuclear power achieving parity with the U.S.'.
Million UK Uber Users Were Compromised In That Hack
Now, after some further digging, it seems that 2.7 million of those affected were Uber customers from the UK. Seven million drivers had their details stolen during the breach, alongside 50 million active Uber users.
The North Korean regime launched an Intercontinental Ballistic Missile (ICBM) on Wednesday with Kim Jong-un declaring they had "finally realised the great historic cause of completing the state nuclear force". "Let them say it directly. then we can take a decision about how to react", said Mr Lavrov. "China must show leadership and follow through". "We will not be taken by surprise".
He said they are ready to 'sit down with the Americans at a negotiating table and solve everything peacefully'.
U.S. President Donald Trump expressed disappointment in an early morning tweet that a Chinese envoy's recent visit to Pyongyang appeared to have had "no impact" on stopping such provocations.
While Russia condemned North Korea's latest missile test, Lavrov also raised concerns about the large-scale U.S.
In its response to the U.S. request for an embargo, the Chinese Foreign Ministry said the country had "always implemented full, comprehensive, serious and strict resolutions".
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 USA and South Korea to halt joint military exercises in order to pave the way for talks.
He also complained that the United States was "totally ignoring" a U.N. demand for talks with North Korea.
