The US deliberately provoke North Korea for a new adventure - Lavrov

China should cut off North Korea's access to crude oil following the latest missile launch from Pyongyang, and Washington has asked it to do just that, the US ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley said, adding that "if war comes, make no mistake, the North Korean regime will be utterly destroyed".

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.

Meanwhile, Russian Foreign Ministry also raised "serious" concern about North Korea's new missile launch that violated the relevant resolutions of the UN Security Council.

North Korea carried out its new missile test early on Wednesday after a 75-day pause.

But Russia, which is masterfully edging the US out of relevance in Syria, is now making more muscular statements on Trump's diplomatic shortcomings with North Korea, including his calls to further isolate the regime.

"The recent US actions seemed to be deliberately aimed at provoking Pyongyang to take new sharp actions", Lavrov said, according to a Russian Foreign Ministry statement.

The administration has suspended Internet services in the district to prevent spreading of rumours. He said that a teenager was injured when a mob clashed with the army in Pakherpora Chowk.

"We perceived this negatively", Lavrov told journalists in the Belarusian capital, Minsk, commenting on Washington's statement on the need to cut ties with North Korea. "We have the impression that it was all done specially to get Kim Jong Un to "fly off the handle" and 'take another reckless step, '" he said, according to Reuters.

"We were encouraged by that approach, but suddenly they are conducting surprise military exercise in October, then November, now we announced in December", - said the Minister.

While saying "our hopes are that China will show leadership and follow through", Ms Haley also issued a warning: "China can do this on its own, or we can take the oil situation into our own hands".

Pyongyang has vowed to build a nuclear-tipped missile capable of hitting the U.S.to deter what it sees as Washington's hostility. Mr Lavrov said Ms Haley's call for the world to isolate North Korea was wrong.

The missile firing comes a week after United States President Donald Trump said North Korea fell under the list of countries that backs terrorism.

North Korea also published photographs of the new ICBM.
