Lavrov hints US-Russia 'Tit-for-tat' could end

Beijing's appeal came as a war of words between Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un escalated

At a news conference Friday on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov once again hit back on claims his country meddled in the 2016 U.S. election, saying his American counterpart failed to offer any proof of interference. "When I asked (US Secretary of State) Rex Tillerson, 'How can we confirm his words that the interference of Russian Federation into American process is well-documented, ' he said, 'I cannot show you anything because this is confidential information'". "It would have leaked". Lavrov noted that Pyongyang is carefully watching how the United States deals with that pact, now up for recertification.

But he said relations are suffering because former president Barack Obama's administration "put this time bomb in U.S. We have to calm down the hot heads", Lavrov said in comments carried by Reuters.

"I think the White House responded already, and I have nothing to add to that", Lavrov said.

Gatilov's comments came after the USA unveiled a sweeping new Executive Order (EO) that looks to force businesses and financial institutions to choose between working with the US and North Korea.

The U.S. and Russian militaries maintain contact to prevent accidents or confrontations between their forces fighting in Syria, but Lavrov said "in order to eliminate terrorists we need not only de-confliction, we need coordination".

The nuclear accord, signed by Russian Federation, the United States, Germany, China, Iran, and Britain, was originally negotiated during former U.S. President Barack Obama's second term in office. "They did it, and that's the reality we live in".

During the discussion at the United Nations the crisis on Korean Peninsula, Sergei Lavrov lashed out at ex-president Barack Obama for planting a "time bomb" that has deepened the worst rift between the two powers since the Cold War and frustrated cooperation in addressing global crises from Iran to North Korea. "It's simply unacceptable to sit back and look at nuclear military gambles of North Korea", but so, too, is it "unacceptable to start war on the peninsula".

Though both Washington and Pyongyang have rejected the proposal, he said, "we believe that the potential is not yet exhausted".

A group of citizens in a northeastern Chinese city bordering North Korea have taken to the streets protesting the North's latest nuclear test as concerns over radioactive contamination are mounting there, a USA broadcaster reported Wednesday.

"If this agreement on the Iran nuclear deal will fall apart, they will say, 'why do I need to negotiate with you?'"

The agreement was violated in 2006, when North Korea conducted its first nuclear test.
