Kremlin Speaks Out After North Korea Rhetoric Heats Up

Troops of the Ministry of People’s Security show their support for North Korea’s stance against the US in Pyongyang. A state newspaper warned that the US could be reduced “to ashes any moment”

Ba Dianjun, director of the Center for Northeast Asia at Jilin University, underscored that despite the mutual aid and cooperation friendship treaty between China and North Korea, Beijing will not come to help if Pyongyang attacks first.

"China should also make clear that if North Korea launches missiles that threaten U.S. soil first and the USA retaliates, China will stay neutral", it wrote. At the same time, Beijing will respond if the US and South Korea strike first and try to overthrow the North Korean regime.

The case of American student Otto Warmbier, who died following his release from North Korea, was included in those talks. "At the same time, China will respond if the USA decides to attack North Korea", Asmolov said.

It is hard to imagine anything more injurious to USA credibility, after insisting that a nuclear-armed North Korea can not stand for over 20 years, to now surrender in the face of North Korean ICBMs.

Last year, a Chinese businesswoman was accused of using "layers of shell and front companies" to conduct activities on behalf of North Korea.

With a backing from the two mighty powers, China and Russia, North Korea's threat seems to be getting more real than ever.

"What I would say here ladies and gentleman, my portfolio, my mission, my responsibility is to have military options should they be needed", he said.

Commenting on the war of words between the USA and North Korea, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said that the risks of a full-fledged war between the U.S. and North Korea are "very high". This way leads to global nuclear war, or to global surrender by the West, and a new world order dominated by Russia, China, North Korea and Iran.

If the USA learns to live with a nuclear-armed North Korea, will we also learn to live with a nuclear-armed Iran? In the current situation a little spark can ignite a fire in the region.

The US and North Korea have exchanged a series of warmongering statements over the recent week.

Tensions around the Korean Peninsula started to rise in light of the implementation of the North Korean missile program. North Korea's threat on July 8 to make a nuclear strike on Guam indicates they understand the concept of limited nuclear operations and surgical strikes.

On the other hand, Russian Federation is also seen criticising Washington's handling of North Korea. Nevertheless, both Russian Federation and China voted for new United Nations sanctions against North Korea last weekend, winning praise from the White House.
