Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has spoken out against the militarization by the United States in northeast Asia.
“It is inadmissible to use this situation as a pretext for the massive militarization of Northeast Asia and deployment of another position area for US global missile defense systems,” he said while addressing the 71st session of the UN General Assembly in New York on Friday.
“All sides must refrain from further escalation of tension and embark on the way toward politico-diplomatic settlement of the nuclear problem of the Korean Peninsula through the resumption of Six-Party talks,” Lavrov added.
The Six-Party talks are a set of discussion that came to a halt when North Korea left the talks after the United States imposed further sanctions on the country.
Lavrov continued by highlighting Washington’s bullying tactics.
“In the enlightened 21st century, it is simply indecent to mentor everyone around, reserving for oneself the right to use doping or launch unilateral adventures bypassing the UN, or conduct geopolitical experiments that cost millions of human lives,” the Russian foreign minister added.
