Sergei Lavrov also disclosed that Russian Federation has suspicions that the USA may have also violated a landmark arms control treaty.

But he said relations are suffering because former president Barack Obama's administration "put this time bomb in U.S".

"There is still hope for peace and we must not give up".

"We have to calm down the hotheads and understand that we need pauses, we need contacts, " Lavrov said when discussing the North Korean issue in NY.

China's foreign minister on Thursday called on North Korea not to go further in a "dangerous direction" with its nuclear program and said negotiations were the only way out of the crisis over Pyongyang's weapons development.

But the US military has "a ban on cooperating with Russia", Lavrov said.

Earthquake In North Korea Sets Off Alarm And Speculation
An official at South Korea's meteorological agency said they were analysing the tremor, which they put at magnitude 3.0. But South Korea's meteorological agency said the incident appeared to be a natural quake.

But Lavrov, addressing reporters at the UN General Assembly, said such matters are beyond the scope of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action signed between Iran and six world powers, including Moscow and Washington.

Lavrov's comments, made to Russian reporters at the United Nations in NY and published by his ministry on Wednesday, illustrate how deeply Moscow and Washington are at odds over an array of issues and suggest any attempts to improve already battered relations face an uphill struggle.

Lavrov said Russian Federation would welcome any efforts at mediation, saying "the mediators could be one of the neutral European countries".

The Russian minister said he had no new initiatives to bring the two sides together, explaining that he believes "the potential" for the Russian-Chinese freeze-for-freeze proposal "is not yet exhausted". "They threaten the implementation of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action", he added, referring to the 2015 global accord between Iran and six world powers.

The threat from North Korea's nuclear and missile tests has dominated this year's gathering of world leaders, but divisions remain over how to confront Pyongyang.

If the Iran nuclear deal falls apart, he said, "then North Korea would say, 'why do I need to negotiate with you if you do not carry out your promises?'"
