Despite tensions, U.S. sees value in New START treaty with Russian Federation

AP Interview: Lavrov hints US-Russia 'Tit-for-tat' could end

The Russian foreign minister said earlier on Friday that Moscow had warned Washington that the efforts of US-backed forces to "make it difficult" for Syrian government troops to complete their campaign against Islamic State in a strategic border region "would not be tolerated".

"We do not see any reasonable arguments against our proposals, Lavrov said, adding that he did not see why countries like the U.S". Lavrov noted that Pyongyang is carefully watching how the United States deals with that pact, now up for recertification. "I'll let you know", he said.

Lavrov blamed the Obama administration for the collapse in relations between Moscow and Washington.

"It is unacceptable to simply sit back and to look at the nuclear and military gambles of North Korea, but it is also unacceptable to start the war on the peninsula", Lavrov told reporters at a news conference on the sidelines of the U.N. General Assembly. "If they are trying to shock us with the sound of a dog's bark they are clearly having a dog dream".

He said a lot of USA politicians say "Russia has to do this and that on Syria", and Russian Federation has to solve the North Korea nuclear problem, and other global crises.

Russia's Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has ruled out the idea of reopening negotiations on Iran's nuclear deal amid United States calls for abandoning or reconsidering the agreement.

On Wednesday, French President Emmanuelle Macron said that canceling the deal with Iran "would be a great error".

He condemned the use of threats against North Korea after Trump vowed this week to "totally destroy" the isolated state if it strikes at the USA or an ally.

- Trump claims the nuclear agreement is one sided and bogus.

"The situation surrounding the North Korean nuclear issue needs to be managed stably so that tensions will not become overly intensified or accidental military clashes will not destroy peace", Moon said.

He stressed that all other parties to the deal, including Russian Federation, support the agreement and don't want it reopened.

Turning to the crisis over the Democratic People's Republic of Korea's (DPRK) nuclear programme, Lavrov said Russian Federation resolutely condemns "the nuclear missile adventures of Pyongyang in violation of the UN Security Council resolutions".

Under the deal, Iran undertakes to curb its nuclear activities and place them under total control of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) in exchange of abandonment of the sanctions imposed previously by the United Nations Security Council, the European Union and the United States over its nuclear program.
