Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov has urged the world community to support the idea contained in the Russian-Chinese roadmap plan for settlement on the Korean Peninsula, TASS reported.
“We are urging all responsible members of the world community to support the idea contained in the Russian-Chinese road map settlement plan,” he told the ongoing Moscow Non-Proliferation Conference,” he said.
“We are certain that its implementation will help ease military activity and tensions on the peninsula and shape a system of equitable and indivisible security in Northeast Asia,” he continued.
“Number one task at the current stage is preventing an armed conflict, which would inevitably result in a humanitarian and ecological disaster,” he said before urging all parties to show restraint.
“Each UN Security Council resolution concerning North Korea’s nuclear problem contains, alongside sanctions, the idea of getting back to the negotiating table,” Lavrov said.
“There is no alternative to a diplomatic settlement of the nuclear issue on the basis of a dialogue.”
