MOSCOW, August 21. /TASS/. Pyongyang is not interested in the escalation of tension on the Korean peninsula, North Korea’s Ambassador to Russia Kim Hyun Joon said on Friday.
"We are not interested in the escalation of tension. It is the United States and South Korea that are interested in this. They should behave more reasonably," the ambassador said.
When asked about whether North Korea hoped for Russia’s assistance in the current situation, the diplomat said Moscow and the entire world "will realize the essence of this incident and make their contribution to detente on the Korean peninsula."
The ambassador said North Korea had not shelled the South Korean territory while 36 shells had fallen on the North Korean territory.
"South Korea could not clearly explain which shells were from the North Korean territory and what their type was," the ambassador said.
