On Wednesday, The US President Donald Trump said in a televised interview that the decent relations with Russia would likely reduce tensions around the Pyongyang’s nuclear issue.
“I think it would be great if we got along with Russia. I don’t think there’s anything wrong,” Trump told Fox News on Wednesday.
“I think we could have a good relationship. I think the North Korea situation would be easier settled.”
North Korea has carried out several missile tests in the last few months. In September, Pyongyang tested what it said was a hydrogen bomb, in violation of a UN Security Council resolution.
The UN Security Council has tightened sanctions against North Korea, but Pyongyang has so far shown no inclination to halt its missile or nuclear programs.US passes ‘harshest ever’ sanctions against N Korea
