  • Russia Calls US Threat to Destroy N.Korea a 'Bloodthirsty Tirade'

Speaking moments after Haley made the call, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov while fielding questions from journalists in the Belarusian capital, Minsk, said; "We perceived this negatively".

North Korea's Central News Agency (KCNA) said that the Hwasong-15 missile had covered a distance of 950 kilometers during its 53-minute flight, reaching an altitude of 4,475 kilometers.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has said U.S. comments about North Korea amounted to a "really bloodthirsty tirade". If war does come, it will be because of continued acts of aggression like we witnessed yesterday ...

Haley's warning comes on the heels of the third intercontinental missile test launch that North Korea announced earlier this week, claiming now its missiles can hit any location in the United States. DPRK refers to North Korea's official name, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.


'If someone really wants to use force to, as the U.S. representative to the United Nations put it, destroy North Korea. then I think that is playing with fire and a big mistake, ' Lavrov said.

He added: 'We will do everything to ensure that [the use of force] doesn't happen so that the problem is decided only using peaceful and political-diplomatic means'.

Trump has praised China - a close ally of Pyongyang - for its efforts to put pressure on North Korea. The U.S. already imposed unilateral sanctions on Pyongyang, but these seem to have failed to make any difference in the regime's plans for turning into a nuclear power.

The test-fired missile is a Hwasong-15 that is an updated version of an earlier missile, which suggests North Korea has improved its ability to strike the USA mainland with a nuclear-tipped missile, 38 North, a website that monitors and analyzes North Korea, reported after the launch.
