La Russie condamne la Corée mais rejette les sanctions contre la Corée du Nord et explique, comme nous l’avons fait hier, que les dirigeants coréens ne cesseront pas leurs provocations tant qu’ils ne sentiront pas en sécurité, nous avons expliqué qu’ils ne voulaient pas se faire Saddam Husseiniser!
Putin added that Pyongyang wouldn’t halt its nuclear tests until it « felt secure. » More details:
“Ramping up military hysteria in such conditions is senseless; it’s a dead end,” he added. “It could lead to a global, planetary catastrophe and a huge loss of human life. There is no other way to solve the North Korean nuclear issue, save that of peaceful dialogue.”
His remarks followed similar statement from China, which chafed at the notion that the US would seek to punish all countries that trade with the North, and similarly suggested that it too would veto any further sanctions on North Korea.
“Russia condemns North Korea’s exercises, we consider that they are a provocation … (But) ramping up military hysteria will lead to nothing good. It could lead to a global catastrophe,” he told reporters. “There’s no other path apart from a peaceful one.”
