Russian Senator Alexey Pushkov commented on the words of US Ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley about the possible destruction of the DPRK.

The American diplomat said that the United States has exhausted the opportunity to solve the North Korean problem in the UN. The American Ambassador also added that if Pyongyang will threaten the security of the United States and its allies, it will be destroyed.

«Hayley tantrum in the UN, threats to start a war against North Korea without thinking of the consequences is a sign of the impasse into which went the United States. On the cost of the war there think?» — Pushkov wrote on Twitter.

«The farce continues»

In the words of the American diplomat about the possibility of complete destruction of the DPRK responded and the first Deputy Chairman of the Federation Council Committee for security and defense Franz Klintsevich, who called farce of the threat of the U.S. against North Korea.

«War is not child’s play and no reason to practice barbs. The U.S. continues to provoke North Korea and thus can create very serious difficulties», — said the Senator.

He also stressed that us intelligence «works well», so the U.S. knows that North Korea has no weapons to harm the United States.

«Hence, such militant rhetoric,» — said Klintsevich.
The Senator also said that such a way of building international relations is invalid.

«Because this farce continues, and in the process it has North Korea violated international laws the nuclear non-proliferation, thus trying to protect themselves», — concluded the MP.

«The cry of the soul»

The head of the Duma Committee on defense Vladimir Shamanov commented on the words of the American diplomat, calling the statement irresponsible Hayley.

«I think it’s a cry of the soul», — said the MP.
He also added that the United States really have the ability to destroy North Korea, but for this, according to Shamanov, you need the consent of the world community.

«They’re not going to live on another planet. So I think that this is tantamount to the irresponsible statement of a superpower, which has positioned itself as a leader in the world community,» he concluded.

Senator Eugene Serebrennikov, in turn, pointed to the differing positions of the head of the state Department’s Rex Tillerson and the U.S. permanent representative to the UN. Statement of Haley, as the pieces of silver, contrary to the words of the head of the us diplomatic corps, who had previously stated that Washington does not seek to unseat the leadership of the DPRK and acts only for the increased pressure.
This situation, according to the Senator, is an indicator of the lack of a unified line of conduct U.S. foreign policy.

Sanctions against the DPRK

Japanese and South Korean military assumed power tested charge amounted to 160 kilotons, which is ten times more powerful than the atomic bombs that were dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945.
