The use of military force to solve the North Korean issue is absolutely unacceptable as it is fraught with disastrous consequences, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Gennady Gatilov said at a meeting of the UN Security Council.

According to him, North Korea has been acting inappropriately, ignoring the United Nations Security Council’s resolutions which ban it from developing nuclear weapons and their means of delivery. “At the same time, the use of military force is absolutely unacceptable as it is fraught with disastrous consequences for the Korean Peninsula and the entire Northeast Asia,” the Russian diplomat added.

“The maximum use of diplomatic tools is preferable,” Gatilov stressed. He warned against taking thoughtless steps concerning the North Korean issue as they may lead “to the most terrible consequences.”
