LONDON, April 10 (Itar-Tass) - Russia and the United States have no disagreements over North Korea, Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Wednesday, April 10.
He said, however, that military manoeuvres should not be used as a form of intimidation.
“Americans and we have no disagreements over North Korea, but military manoeuvres should not be used for intimidation,” Lavrov said at a meeting with U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry.
“There is a probability that things will settle down,” he added, speaking of the situation on the Korean Peninsula.
Lavrov and Kerry are meeting ahead of the upcoming G8 ministerial to be held in London on April 11. Their discussion will focus on the situation on the Korean Peninsula and Syria, as well as the Iranian nuclear programme.
