Speaking at the United Nations headquarters in New York, North Korea's Ambassador to the UN Kim In Ryong said the U.S. airstrike on Syria was meant as a message to North Korea. Dmitry Kiselyov, whose weekly news review show on Russia's state-run broadcaster has served as one of the most widely-watched pro-Kremlin programs in Russian Federation, turned his attention to North Korea last week.
The nominee of the center-left People's Party made the claim in response to a North Korean media report that disparaged him as the "lesser evil" for conservatives in an election shaping up to be a two-way race between Ahn and Moon Jae-in of the liberal Democratic Party.
According to Kiselyov, Trump is "more impulsive and unpredictable" than the North Korean leader because he has "limited worldwide experience, unpredictability, and a readiness to go to war".
The state-run television show went on to suggest that the North Korean dictator, who inherited his post from his father (who inherited the post from his father), was a more principled opponent of nepotism than Trump: After all, Kim hasn't given his daughter a cushy government job, while Trump has provided Ivanka with her own White House office.
"The world is a hair's breadth from nuclear war", said Kiselyov, according to Reuters.
"He (Kim Jong-Un) is after all on his home territory".
Instead, he said the results of Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping's summit at Mar-a-Lago earlier this month "are paying off".
Russian President Vladimir Putin's spokesman Dmitry Peskov did not say if the Kremlin's views matched with Kiselyov.
But is this a shock? North Korea considered Bushes words just short of declaring war. Bloomberg stated that Russian Federation only "maintains close ties" with the communist country, but does not consider Moscow an "ally to the regime like China".
China has even reached out to Russian Federation to "help cool tensions over North Korea".
Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov remained wary that USA military actions in Syria were the last of their kind.
A statement on China's Foreign Ministry website said Mr Wang told the Russian diplomat: "China is ready to coordinate closely with Russia to help cool down as soon as possible the situation on the peninsula and encourage the parties concerned to resume dialogue".
Speaking today he also described the failed missile test as an "unsuccessful military attack" on the US. In 2015, Russian Federation and North Korea announced a "year of friendship" to deepen their ties. Do you remember when he said North Korea would now fully join the world of peaceful nations?
