US Conduct Joint Short-range Air Defense Drill

Russian Federation says it is ready to work with North Korea to try to find a peaceful resolution to the missile crisis on the Korean Peninsula.

Burmistrov spoke then with North Korean Vice Foreign Minister Sin Hong Chol, who said Pyongyang would continue to strengthen its nuclear capabilities and would not negotiate on them with the US unless Washington abandoned its hostile policy, the official Korean Central News Agency reported at the time.

Cited by RIA, Mikhail Ulyanov, the head of the non-proliferation and arms controls department at Russia's foreign ministry, also said the USA approach to North Korea was a dead end and the tool of sanctions against the North had nearly been exhausted.

The strategy calls for Pyongyang to stop its tests in exchange for an end to US and South Korean joint military exercises on the peninsula.
