Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has said US comments about North Korea amounted to a ‘really bloodthirsty tirade’.

Attacking remarks made by US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley, he also said using force against Pyongyang would be ‘a big mistake’, TASS news agency reported.

Haley earlier this week warned North Korea’s leadership it would be ‘utterly destroyed’ if war were to break out after Pyongyang test fired its most advanced missile, putting the US mainland within range, in violation of UN Security Council resolutions.

TASS reported that Lavrov – who is on a visit to Rome – explained that using force against North Korea would be ‘playing with fire’ and ‘a big mistake’ and that Moscow would do everything it could to avoid such a scenario.

‘If someone really wants to use force to, as the US representative to the United Nations put it, destroy North Korea… then I think that is playing with fire and a big mistake,’ Lavrov said.

He added: ‘We will do everything to ensure that [the use of force] doesn’t happen so that the problem is decided only using peaceful and political-diplomatic means.’

Also today, Russian lawmakers who visited Pyongyang said North Korea was not prepared to disarm.
