Tillerson urges China to curb oil supply to N

In some of his most robust comments on the subject to date, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov also flatly rejected a US call to cut ties with Pyongyang over its nuclear and ballistic missile programme and said USA policy towards North Korea was deeply flawed.

The test-fired missile is a Hwasong-15 that is an updated version of an earlier missile, which suggests North Korea has improved its ability to strike the US mainland with a nuclear-tipped missile, 38 North, a website that monitors and analyzes North Korea, reported after the launch.

On Thursday, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov accused the United States of attempting to provoke North Korea, saying the Washington is trying to make Pyongyang take "extreme measures".

U.S. President Donald Trump said in October he would not certify that Tehran was complying with the 2015 deal and warned he might ultimately terminate it, accusing Iran of "not living up to the spirit" of the accord.

Russia Thursday rejected a United States call to cut ties with Pyongyang, suggesting Washington has been doing everything to prompt North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un to "lose it".

He urged the acceptance of a proposal made jointly by China and Russian Federation that would require North Korea to suspend nuclear activity and the US and South Korea to halt joint military exercises in order to pave the way for talks.

"We are really asking them please restrain more oil, not take it off completely - that was the most effective tool the last time North Korea came to the table was cutting the oil off", Tillerson told reporters.

While Russia condemned North Korea's latest missile test, Lavrov also raised concerns about the large-scale U.S.

"The Chinese envoy, who just returned from North Korea, seems to have had no impact on Little Rocket Man", Mr Trump said.

"The Americans need to explain to us all if they want to find a pretext to destroy North Korea". And then suddenly. they announced large-scale exercises in December. North Korea's leader Kim Jong-Un said this test showed that North Korea had become a full nuclear power.

"So part of [Russia's positioning] is to seem reasonable to South Korea and to ally with China against the USA and I think they are largely seen sympathetically by other countries as well, who are quite concerned with the direction in which the U.S".

"If the United States drops out of this deal, it won't be very credible in the eyes of those who are now requested to drop their (own) nuclear program like North Korea", Lavrov said.

The call by Haley was made a day after defiant North Korea fired it's first missile since September 15 which it claimed could reach mainland USA.
