Russia's foreign minister Sergey Lavrov said it was "unacceptable to spread military hysteria" as tensions heighten on the Korean peninsula.
Russia's ministry of foreign affairs tweeted:
Lavrov:All the embassies in Pyong Yang have been offered to evacuate; we are hoping to clarify the situation
We believe it is imperative to prevent hostilities on the Korean Peninsula. It is unacceptable to spread military hysteria
We see no alternative to a political, diplomatic resolution to the Korean Peninsula’s nuclear and other problems, based on UNSC resolutions
