North Korea will not be accepted as a nuclear power by US or Russia, say Rex Tillerson and Sergei Lavrov

The US and Russia have insisted they will not accept North Korea as a "nuclear state", amid a series of missile tests by the East Asian nation and increased rhetoric from both Kim Jong-un and Donald Trump.
US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov spoke on the telephone yesterday on a myriad of issues, but both agreed on their stance regarding Pyongyang's continued development of nuclear weapons despite United Nations sanctions. 
State Department Heather Nauert said in a statement that "both sides agreed that they will continue to work toward a diplomatic solution to achieve a denuclearised Korean peninsula." 


  1. Obviously the moment North Korea gives up their nukes, they will be invaded and their leadership murdered and their government overthrown and their country turned into a puppet so their resources can be stolen by the West... So what would their incentive be to just give up their nukes?
