Moscow concerned by concentration of the strike group of the Navy of the United States in northeast Asia and counter the bellicose rhetoric of Pyongyang. On Thursday, April 27, said the official representative of Russian foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova, RIA Novosti reported.
“In the evolving circumstances it is important to prevent the development of events in a crisis scenario, which is fraught with just rolling of open armed confrontation,” — said the diplomat at a meeting in Moscow.
According to Zakharova, the situation on the Korean Peninsula “continues to deteriorate”. “At the heart of this trend is the reluctance of the warring parties to abandon the confrontational approach and bet on the power methods of solving existing problems”, — noted the official representative of the foreign Ministry.
The diplomat added that Russia hopes for a constructive discussion of the situation on the Korean Peninsula during a special UN security Council meeting scheduled for 28 April. It will be attended by Deputy foreign Minister of Russia Gennady Gatilov.
The situation on the Korean Peninsula in recent days is one of the most acute topics of international politics. The U.S. Navy concentrated in the region of the strike group led by the aircraft carrier “Carl Vinson”. It was reported that the Americans are willing to launch a preemptive strike on North Korean military targets if Pyongyang decides for another nuclear test. The DPRK responded by declaring that warned of the American attack its own pre-emptive strike.
