USA sanctions N.Korean missile experts, Russian Federation offers to mediate”

On Tuesday, the Kremlin, which has long called for the two sides to hold negotiations, said it was ready to act as a mediator if the United States and North Korea were willing for it to play such a role.

Moscow calls on U.S. and allies to refrain from provoking tensions and exerting "maximum pressure" on Pyongyang.

This may open the way for the de-escalation of tensions between the United States and North Korea, Peskov added.

Russian Federation and China have the relatively closest diplomatic relations with insular North Korea, which poses a nuclear threat to its neighbor South Korea and that country's allies Japan and the U.S.

"And in the calculation it is not taken at all that the implementation of such a plan will cause a real humanitarian catastrophe".

However, the ministry noted that both Lavrov and Tillerson agreed that North Korea's nuclear and missile programs violate the demands of the UN Security Council.

Bell ringers are needed at the Salvation Army's red kettles
This year's Angel Tree program distributed gifts, including 225 new bicycles, to 859 children from 340 area families, said Capt. Michelle Scroggins, director of community relations, says they haven't been seeing a negative impact on donations locally.

The measures order North Koreans working overseas to return home within two years and ban almost 90 percent of refined petroleum exports to the country.

Russian Federation as well as China supported the new move, despite previously raising concerns that not enough was being done to promote diplomatic resolutions to tensions on the Korean Peninsula.

"North Korea will seek negotiation with United States, while continuing to pursue its effort to be recognized as a de facto nuclear-possessing country", according to a report released by South Korea's Unification Ministry, which reportedly did not provide any reasons to support its conclusion.

Following the vote on Friday, US President Donald Trump endorsed the stricter measures, saying on Twitter "The World wants Peace, not Death!".

North Korea is preparing to launch a satellite, it has been claimed, as outside observers warn that the nuclear-armed regime's space programme is likely to be a cover up for more for weapons tests.

This lack of diplomacy may be the reason behind the rise in North Korean missile tests and contentious rhetoric at the United Nations and other worldwide forums.
