MOSCOW, June 23. /TASS/. Speaker of the Federation Council upper house of Russia’s parliament Valentina Matviyenko said on Tuesday the joint military activity of the United States and South Korea plays a destructive role.
"We are fully aware of the destructive role of the joint military activity of the Republic of Korea and the United States in the region and openly tell our American and South Korean partners about this," the Federation Council speaker said at a meeting with chairman of North Korea’s (DPRK) Supreme People’s Assembly Choe Thae-bok.
According to Matviyenko, "The situation on the Korean Peninsula still gives no grounds for complacency." The Federation Council speaker said that "periodic aggravation of the situation coincides in time with the annual US-South Korean exercises, some aspects of which are often just provocative."
"We have been constantly urging all parties to exercise maximum restraint, avoid any statements or actions that may lead to the further aggravation of the situation on the Korean Peninsula," she said.
