Maria Zakharova: US holds a "rehearsal" for a massive strike on the DPRK
Today there was another briefing by the official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova. Traditionally, the correspondent of The Moscow Post asked his question.
Director of the First Department of Asia Georgy Zinoviev said that the situation on the Korean Peninsula is "degrading." Pyongyang said that it is going to war, moreover, to nuclear.
"What has changed over the past few days?," The journalist asked.
Recently, as Maria Zakharova noted, the situation on the Korean Peninsula has significantly worsened. The reason is obvious - Washington seeks to force Pyongyang to unilateral disarmament with the help of sanctions and force pressure. With the help of provocations, the United States is trying to use all its strategic potential and the strategic potential of allies in the Asia-Pacific region.
Just on Monday, October 31, the US Air Force and the Republic of Korea began an unprecedented exercise in scale, involving about 240 aircraft.
"That is, in fact, the" rehearsal "of a massive strike on the territory of the DPRK," said Maria Zakharova.
For its part, the Russian Foreign Ministry assumes that a lasting peace in northeast Asia can only be achieved through the creation of a system of multilateral indivisible security, with the provision of appropriate guarantees to all states interested in this.
It is to achieve this goal that well-known Russian-Chinese diplomatic initiatives are aimed.
