On the fringes of the world meeting, North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong-ho told reporters that Pyongyang might now consider detonating a hydrogen bomb outside its territory.

"There is a saying that marching goes on even when dogs bark", he said as he entered his hotel on Wednesday.

Lavrov added this about discussions with Secretary of State Tillerson, "What I feel, talking to Rex Tillerson, is that this is the position of the administration, that they are not happy with the current state of relations, and we are not happy at all". "That was mentioned by all the European countries that participated in the negotiations", he said.

KELEMEN: Abe is praising Trump for standing tough on North Korea.

The threat of a North Korean nuclear attack is continuously growing after the country launched another missile on September 15.

"If North Korea keeps on with this reckless behavior, if the United States has to defend itself, or defend its allies in any way, North Korea will be destroyed", she told CNN.

Lavrov also tied the situation in North Korea to threats by the United States to pull out of the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, saying withdrawal "would send the wrong message" to Pyongyang. When the pair of presidents met at the Group of 20 summit in Germany this summer, Trump claimed he directly asked Putin twice if Russian Federation meddled in the election-the longstanding assertion of the USA intelligence community-and said Putin denied it. Trump later said he believed Putin.

In his address to the United Nations assembly, Moon struck a different tone after Trump's fiery speech, saying the crisis needs to be "managed" to prevent an accidental outbreak of war. If North Korea makes a decision even now to stand on the right side of history, we are ready to assist North Korea together with the worldwide community.

Lavrov asserted that U.N. Security Council resolutions reached unanimously contain not only sanctions provisions, but obligations to engage in a political process.

The United States has separately imposed unilateral sanctions, some of which target firms from China which is the primary economic partner of North Korea.

Top officials in the United States reportedly warned North Korea that it is running out of time.

The BRICS nations are an important force for safeguarding world peace and development and should be committed to solving the nuclear issue on the Korean Peninsula, as well as other hot spot issues in Syria and Afghanistan, he added.

PRESIDENT MOON JAE-IN: (Through interpreter) We do not desire collapse of North Korea.
