MOSCOW, September 17. /TASS/. The Russian Foreign Ministry on Thursday expressed concern over reports of a possible rocket launch in North Korea.
The ministry paid attention to reports about North Korea’s plans to launch a carrier rocket with an Earth satellite, as well as Pyongyang’s confirmation of the resumption of work at the Yongbyon nuclear facility, spokesperson Maria Zakharova said
"We have concerns over the possibility of a new rocket launch and North Korea’s ongoing work to create a nuclear weapon banned under relevant resolutions of the United Nations Security Council," Zakharova said.
"We hope all parties concerned will exercise maximum restraint and responsibility to prevent escalation of the situation in Northeast Asia," Zakharova added.
She stressed that the resolution of the nuclear and other problems of the Korean peninsula by political and diplomatic means had no alternative.
