Russia does not accept a North Korea that possesses nuclear weapons

Russia does not accept a North Korea that possesses nuclear weapons, Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said.

Lavrov added that there was an overwhelming amount of belligerent rhetoric on North Korea’s nuclear and rocket programs from Washington and Pyongyang, and that Russia hopes that ultimately common sense will prevail.

Lavrov noted that North Korea had once signed the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) but then withdrew from it.

“Now [North Korea] claims that it has legal rights to make nuclear weapons and has already [done so],” he said. “But you know our position: we don’t accept the fact that North Korea could possess nuclear weapons.”

A similar position was voiced earlier on Friday by German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who said Berlin would support “any non-military solutions” regarding North Korea but deemed an escalation of rhetoric “the wrong answer.”

“I don't see a military solution to this conflict,” Merkel told reporters in Berlin. “I see the need for enduring work at the UN Security Council ... as well as tight cooperation between the countries involved, especially the US and China.”
