Moscow and London are ready to increase cooperation on all issues on the UN Security Council’s agenda, including the North Korea crisis, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said following talks with British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson on Friday.

“We have discussed the situation on the Korean Peninsula, particularly in the light of the United Nations Security Council debates,” Lavrov said. “In general, we have agreed that Russia and the United Kingdom, as permanent members of the UN Security Council, should increase cooperation on all the issues included in the agenda of this key body,” the Russian top diplomat added.
