Moscow seeks support for Russia-Chinese roadmap on North Korea


MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov urged world powers on Friday to get behind a joint Russian-Chinese roadmap for settling the crisis over North Korea's weapons program.


Speaking at a conference on non-proliferation in Moscow, Lavrov said that the break-up of a deal on Iran's nuclear program would send an alarming message about international security mechanisms, and could impact the situation on the Korean peninsula.
