Russia Says ‘Concerned’ About North Korea’s Missile Test


Russia said it considers the North Korean missile test, conducted on February 12, another demonstrative act of ignoring the UN Security Council resolutions on this subject.

“In this context, we cannot but express our regret and concern,” the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in a Monday statement.

The Ministry urged all concerned parties to show restraint and refrain from any action that would further escalate tensions.

“We believe that the Korean Peninsula issues, including the nuclear issue, can be resolved only though political and diplomatic means,” the Ministry said, adding, “Peace and stability in the region can be achieved only by rejecting confrontation in favor of efforts to improve the overall military and political situation in Northeast Asia.”
