UN SECURITY COUNCIL: Russia and China call for peace, condemn DPRK nuke test

The Ambassadors of China and Russia have spoken with a joint voice before the United Nations Security Council during a special session devoted to discussing North Korea’s detonation of what is thought to be a hydrogen bomb on the 3rd of September.

Each country has maintained a firm commitment to the so-called ‘double-freeze’ policy which calls for both North Korea and South Korea, along with the US to cease missile and weapons tests. Russia and China also call on the US, South Korea and Japan to cease with provocative military drills in addition to calling for direct talks between Pyongyang and Washington.

Russia’s Ambassador to the UN Vasily Nebenzya has stated,

“We call for the international community not to be ruled by emotion, but to approach the situation in a calm and balanced manner.

Moscow once again emphasises that a comprehensive solution to the nuclear and other problems on the Korean peninsula can only be achieved through political and diplomatic means, including through the mediation by the UN General Secretary”.

China’s Ambassador to the UN, Liu Jieyi stated that his country strongly urges North Korea to “stop taking actions that are wrong, deteriorating the situation and not in line with its own interests either and truly return to the track of resolving the issue through dialogue”.

Liu further called on all members of the UN Security Council to adopt the policies of the Sino-Russian double-freeze.

While Nikki Haley, America’s Ambassador to the UN said that North Korea is “begging for war”, a war which the US refuses to rule out, Julian Assange who has been closely following the events surrounding Korea has suggested that it is in the US interest to provoke North Korea in order to justify putting weapons of mass destruction near to China’s border.

If this is the case, the US is far less interested in peace than in prolonging the conflict which China and Russia have urged all sides to es-escalate immediately.

“US seems determined to prolong tensions”

Well, for a country that has been at war for 230 years of its 247 year existence, peace gives it the shakes.

It likes the status quo. Washington wants to be a permanent
feature in South Korea so it can encircle Russia and China with lethal
missile systems and expand its geopolitical grip bringing the world
closer to nuclear Armageddon.

This makes a warmonger high, and that’s why the crisis on the peninsula will continue to boil.

US warmongers climb down to peace? Ha!
After all, the US is ‘exceptional and indispensable’, so they think.

“begging for war”….what a ridiculous phrase. Even if someone were to really do such a thing – what kind of person gives it to them?

Please correct the last sentence …”…China and Russia have urged all sides to es-escalate”. It should be de-escalate.

Instead of all this “diplo-speak” bullshit, why don’t Putin and Xi Jinping as “Tuakana” (elder brothers) to their “Teina” (younger brother) Kim Jong-un; haul him in and give him a kick up the arse and a clip around the ears? They should be telling him, “the only kids on this block are, the US Regime.” There’s no need to for Kim Jong-un to be playing along with their childish antics.

It’s Kabuki Theatre. …..Kim should get an Oscar. 
All the Nuke tests from 2006 – 2016 are near identical signature.  
It’s possible**…..NK does not even have a working nuke program,  
Yet are lighting off Old* Nukes…. given them by Russia and China. 

South Korea deploy more THAAD…That’s 800 $Million x God knows what …for missile reload contract. 

Trump tells China to not Trade with NK. ..or Else.  
Julian Assange Tweets Trump will be deposed if Trump blocks $650 Million in China/US Trade. 

How do you end up with Trump/Hillary…..and then Black social chaos pull down Southern Civil War statues?
