«We have seen since the beginning of the year voluntary moratorium on DPRK missile and nuclear tests, we see also the voluntary failure of the US military exercises with its allies (in the area of the Korean Peninsula — ed.) is, of course, a positive development, it gives hope that the reduction of military tension now de facto implemented,» said Morgulov, speaking at a panel discussion during the WEF 2018.
