"Our nuclear programme and weapons are aimed at the US", the diplomat said in comments carried by Russian state news agency TASS.

Russian Federation and China have the closest diplomatic relations with the insular communist state of North Korea.

Pompeo says the US ought to behave as if North Korea is on the cusp of having the capability to launch a nuclear attack. "Our ultimate goal is to achieve a balance with the United States to ensure it does not dare to speak about any military actions against the DPRK", she said.

The committee goes on to note that North Korea "has emerged a fully-fledged nuclear power", calling Trump's threat to annihilate it a "big miscalculation" and urging the MPs to reject "heinous and reckless moves" that aim to "drive the world into a terrible nuclear disaster".


The joint US-South Korea drills, dubbed the Maritime Counter Special Operations Forces Exercise (MCSOFEX), are said to "promote communications, interoperability, and partnership" between the militaries of the two countries. "It is the case that they are close enough now in their capabilities that from a USA policy perspective, we ought to behave as if we are on the cusp of them achieving that objective".

"I am not planning such meetings", she said.

U.S. National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster said Thursday at the Foundation for Defense and Democracy the White House finds North Korea's approach to negotiations unacceptable.

South Korea's top nuclear envoy Lee Do-hoon held a meeting with his US counterpart Joseph Yun to discuss how to respond to the issue of North Korea's nuclear program, according to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. This was stated during a Washington Security Forum by CIA Director Mike Pompeo, the Guardian newspaper reported.
