The Kremlin with concern the escalation of the situation on the Korean Peninsula in Moscow warned against provocative actions in the region, said the press Secretary of the President Dmitry Peskov.

“In Moscow with great concern observe the escalation of tensions on the Korean Peninsula, we call on all countries to show restraint, preventing the country from taking any action that could mean some kind of provocative steps,” — said Peskov told reporters.

So he responded to a request to comment on the worsening situation between the United States and the DPRK and the mutual exchange of threats between the two countries and the question of whether in Moscow that Russia needed to intervene at the diplomatic level.

“Of course, Russia has a fairly consistent position on the non-proliferation dossier continues to hold this position continues to be a supporter of political-diplomatic methods of resolving all crises, including North Korea”, — said Peskov.

Earlier, the TV channel NBC, citing intelligence sources reported that the US can pre-emptive strike on North Korea to prevent another nuclear weapons test. The United States also sent to the shores of the Korean Peninsula a carrier battle group led by the aircraft carrier “Carl Vinson”. North Korea, as in many cases previously, threatened the United States with a nuclear strike.

Last week the United States conducted a missile attack on an air base in Syria, releasing her 59 missiles “Tomahawk”, citing the fact that from this base the alleged bombing was carried out with the use of chemical weapons, the USA does not provide any evidence. This gave rise to discussion about the possibility of a preemptive U.S. strike on North Korea.
