Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said in an exclusive interview to TASS First Deputy Director General Mikhail Gusman and AP Vice President John Daniszewski that Russia does not doubt that the United States could “do something very destructive” to North Korea.

“We heard the statements from President Trump about North Korea in the same vein for many times. We don’t doubt that the United States has capacity to do something very destructive,” he said.
“But I paid attention to another part of the president’s speech,” Lavrov continued. “He said he respects sovereignty and equality in international relations, that the United States wants to live by example and not otherwise, and that the US would not impose its way of life on others and will accept the plurality of the nations, cultures and civilizations.
“I think it’s a very welcomed statement which we haven’t heard from an American leader for a very long time,” he added.
