The DPRK is unlikely to abandon nuclear weapons, yet will feel a direct threat to its security. Because the North Koreans regard the regular large-scale maneuvers and exercises of the US and its allies in the region. This was stated by Deputy Minister of foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation Gennady Gatilov at the meeting of the UN Security Council on the situation on the Korean Peninsula, reports the UN news Center.
Gatilov also said that now the world is “experiencing one of the most acute and dramatic phases of development of the situation on the Korean Peninsula.”
“Bellicose rhetoric, coupled with the rash of “muscle-flexing” has led to the fact that around the world seriously began to wonder, there will be war or not. As you know, in the face of such tension one thoughtless or misinterpreted a step could lead to the most terrible and disastrous consequences,” he said.

Gatilov said that Russia condemns nuclear test by Pyongyang, but added that destabilizing factor in the region is also adopted last year by Washington and Seoul, the decision on placing on the territory of the Republic of Korea, elements of the us missile defense.
Earlier today it was reported that the head of the International atomic energy Agency (IAEA) Yukiya Amano said North Korea is advancing in the development of its nuclear program. U.S. Secretary of state Rex Tillerson, in turn, said at the UN security Council about the need to impose new sanctions against North Korea to strengthen her economic pressure.
