Russia, China discuss coordination on North Korea issue

Russia’s Deputy Foreign Minister Gennady Gatilov on Wednesday held talks with China’s ambassador to Russia Li Hui about Moscow and Beijing coordinating action on North Korea at the UN Security Council.

Earlier the same day, Russian Foreign Minister spokesperson Maria Zakharova denounced the US’s recent military displays in South Korea and called on Washington and Pyongyang to negotiate a political solution to the Korean Peninsula issue.

US State Department spokesperson Heather Nauert said it is not the right time for the US to talk with North Korea, which has shown no signs of willingness to denuclearize.
