Russia Says War Of Words Between Trump And Kim Jong-Un Is ‘A Fight Between Two Children’
Russia’s foreign minister, Sergei Lavrov, has compared Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un to nursery children, after the two leaders traded insults and threats.
Lavrov described the leaders as “hotheads” who needed to “calm down”.
“Yes, it’s unacceptable to silently watch North Korea’s nuclear military adventures, but it is also unacceptable to unleash war on the Korean Peninsula,” he said.
Calling for a political solution to the dispute, he said: “Together with China we’ll continue to strive for a reasonable approach and not an emotional one like when children in a kindergarten start fighting and no-one can stop them.”
