Russian Diplomat: US Obviously Not to Leave Balkans Alone
TEHRAN (FNA)- Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova stressed that, apparently, the United States will not leave the Balkan countries alone.

"Two pieces of news came within a couple of minutes. [The first says] that Montenegro’s Defense Minister assumed that Russia had refused from exercising influence on the republic and [the second] that Pompeo accused Russia and Turkey of destabilization in the Balkans," she wrote on her Facebook page on Wednesday, TASS reported.

"It’s funny because it’s very indicative," the Spokeswoman said, adding that it is not funny because we feel pity for the Balkans. It is obvious that Washington intends to linger on them".

Russia: Chemical Terrorism May Spread Beyond Middle East Due to Western Connivance
TEHRAN (FNA)- Moscow stressed that the stance that the Western powers take on the issue of chemical weapons in Syria may encourage the chemical terrorism to go beyond the borders of the Middle East.

"Inciting the Syrian armed opposition to provocations of this kind may lead to a situation, in which the phenomenon of ‘chemical’ terrorism, which had emerged in the Middle East with their (West’s) connivance, goes beyond the region’s borders with all due catastrophic consequences," the Russian Foreign Ministry said, commenting on the May 17-18 meeting of the International Partnership against Impunity for the Use of Chemical Weapons, TASS reported.

The Russian side expressed hope that "sooner or later, the truth will prevail" and accusations against Russia and Syria "will backfire".

A number of NGOs, including the White Helmets, stated that chemical weapons were used in Eastern Ghouta on April 7. Representatives from the Russian Reconciliation Center for the Opposing Sides examined Douma on April 9 and found no trace of any use of chemical weapons there. The next day the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) decided to deploy its experts to Syria to check reports of the possible use of chemical weapons there.

The OPCW inspectors arrived in Damascus on April 14. Several hours before the US, the UK and France had conducted a massive strike on Syria, having used reports of the incident as a pretext and without approval of the UN Security Council. According to the Russian Defense Ministry, Syrian air defenses shot down 71 out of 103 missiles launched over Syrian facilities, and three civilians were injured.

Russia: US Claims of Libyan Scenario for North Korea Pose Threat to Entire Region
TEHRAN (FNA)- The Russian Foreign Ministry noted that the situation on the Korean Peninsula is a problem for the whole international agenda, which occasionally becomes "turbulent".

"The fact is, when the US threatens North Korea, Pyongyang, with a 'Libyan scenario,' they threaten not only Pyongyang. They threaten everyone, the whole region. And it is based on the history of the 'Libyan scenario,'" Russian Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Maria Zakharova said, Sputnik reported.

The Spokesperson's comment referred to recent statements made by US President Donald Trump's national security adviser John Bolton who said that Washington considered Libya an example of how to handle possible talks with North Korea over its nuclear program.

The Russian Foreign Ministry's Spokeswoman stated that Moscow had planned a number of actions, aimed at settling the situation on the Korean Peninsula.

"The Korean issue should be solved in an active manner; this is what we are doing. I cannot provide details yet, but I can say that the Russian side has planned a number of actions, including contacts on the line and direction of settling the situation in the region in the context of the situation on the Korean Peninsula," Zakharova added.

In the meantime, the White House continues its preparations for the US President's planned meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un in Singapore on June 12. However, Trump has stated that there was a possibility that the talks wouldn't take place.

The de-escalation prospects for the Korean Peninsula have been put at risk, when the United States and South Korea launched a two-week annual air exercise, dubbed Max Thunder, which caused Pyongyang to cancel ministerial-level talks with Seoul. Despite North Korea's warning, Seoul said that it would continue its joint military exercise with Washington.

Russia: Ultimatums, Pressure Policies in North Korean Situation Destined to Fail
TEHRAN (FNA)- Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Wednesday that he would discuss situation in the region and bilateral relations during his visit to North Korea.

The Russian Foreign Minister will pay an official visit to North Korea on Thursday and will discuss bilateral relations, the situation around the Korean Peninsula and international agenda with his North Korean counterpart Ri Yong-ho, according to the Russian Foreign Ministry on Wednesday, Sputnik reported.

"The purpose of this visit, just like any other, is to discuss bilateral relations with our partners and address the situation in the relevant region of the world," Lavrov said at the Primakov Readings international think tank summit.

Lavrov on Wednesday expressed hope that talks between North Korea and the United States will bear fruit.

"We support the ongoing changes in relations between the two Koreas, in the relations between Pyongyang and Washington. And we very much hope that these negotiations, which were announced, and which are now confirmed as appointed, will not result in ultimatums," Lavrov stressed.

The Minister noted that Russia was involved in the six-party talks on the North Korean issue, pointing out that the settlement of the crisis on the Korean Peninsula would inevitably require the resumption of this multilateral negotiation process with the participation of all six member-countries.

Russian President Vladimir Putin earlier stated that Pyongyang needs more security guarantees if the world hopes to rid the Korean Peninsula of nuclear weapons.

これだけスキャンダルまみれの極東の首相が辞めないのは、この記事の下線部にあるのではないでしょうか。

ホントに不思議ですよね。まだしがみついていますからね。
中高年のネツトウヨは弁護士に懲戒請求をしても、自分の命や生活に最も悪影響のある首相は弾劾も辞任要求もしない。
北朝鮮がリビアと違うのは、北朝鮮には石油はなく、金一族が蓄えたと見られる富も少ないと見られることです。リビアはめちゃくちゃに破壊されて石器時代に戻ったとされましたが、北朝鮮を破壊してみてもカネがかかるだけです。まあ、日本に負担させるという考えはあるのでしょうけど。
でも、北朝鮮のリビアシナリオですと、日本海は極東の地中海になります。
中高年のネツトウヨが、鉈や竹槍や棍棒を持つて日本海側の海岸で難民を殺戮するんでしょうね。その光景を見れば、生きることへの執着もなくなるでしょう。私の冥途の土産にピッタリです。
