Foreign minister Sergey Lavrov made the demand as he admitted the US Global Anti-Missile Shield being built by Washington on foreign soil remains a key problem for both Russia and China.

Speaking at a conference on non-proliferation in Moscow, he called for world powers to support a Russian-Chinese roadmap on settling the crisis in North Korea which has escalated this year following a war of words between President Trump and despot leader Kim Jong-un.

Mr Lavrov warned there is no alternative to political dialogue where North Korean nuclear ambitions are concerned in a ramping up of Russian concerns over a growing number of military drills being carried out by the US and ally South Korea in the Korean peninsula.

He also said breaking up the Iran nuclear deal, which Mr Trump this week refused to re-certify, would send an “alarming signal” about international security mechanisms and could impact the situation on the Korean peninsula.

The Russian’s warnings came just hours after former US Secretary of State John Kerry said Mr Trump risks driving Iran towards nuclear proliferation and worsening a standoff with North Korea if Washington ends a nuclear deal with Tehran.
