MOSCOW, March 6. /TASS/. Russia calls on all parties on the Korean Peninsula to show restraint to prevent further escalation of tension, the Russian foreign ministry said on Monday commenting on North Korea’s missile launch on March 6 and US’ and South Korea’s ongoing drills.
"In the current conditions, we call on all parties concerned to show restraint and ponder over negative impacts of further escalation of tension on security and stability in the region," the ministry said. "We see a way out of the current situation in building up efforts towards political and diplomatic settlement of the entire spectrum of problems of the Korean Peninsula."
North Korea made another, the second in the current year, missile launch early on Monday. According to South Korea’s national defense ministry, North Korea fired four missiles to a distance of about 1,000 kilometers in the easterly direction. Three missiles fell in Japan’s exclusive economic zone.
On March 1, South Korea and the United States kicked off traditional Foal Eagle drills that are to be conducted throughout the current month. Apart from that, the Key Resolve command post exercises are to begin on March 13.
