New US approaches to solving North Korean problems lead to the opposite effect. This view was expressed by the head of the Federation Council Committee on international Affairs Konstantin Kosachev, RIA Novosti reported on Wednesday, April 5.

“To strengthen the bellicose rhetoric from Washington, Pyongyang responds with new launches and accelerating the development of nuclear missile programs,” the Senator said.

According to him, North Korea is expected to respond to a demonstration of force from the United States. “That is why it is extremely important to return the problem from the situation of mutual provocations in the six-party negotiating format,” — said Kosachev.

He drew attention to the fact that Washington is seeking to work in bilateral formats. According to the head of the Committee, should be discussed in the UN security Council not only missile launches in the DPRK, but “sabotage the multilateral track of the individual participants.”

At the same time, Kosachev noted the willingness of States to work with China on the North Korean problem. The Senator called to consider it a positive signal, as the positions of Moscow and Beijing on this issue, “almost coincide”.
