Russia, China: “US – South Korea Drills Must End”

  • Published on Jul 4, 2017
    Russian President Vladimir Putin says Moscow and Beijing are working together to freeze Pyongyang’s military program but believe that Seoul and Washington must also put an end to their joint war games on the Peninsula. Putin made the remarks while hosting his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping. The 2 leaders also said during a press conference on Tuesday that they’re considering different strategies of implementing their proposal. The joint plan was announced shortly after the North announced the successful launch of an intercontinental ballistic missile. The Russian foreign ministry has separately called on Pyongyang to abide by the United Nation’s resolution on missile testing. Moscow says nothing other than multilateral talks can help resolve the issue. Pyongyang stresses its missile program is merely defensive in nature.
