MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Wednesday after holding talks with U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson that Moscow and Washington broadly agreed that the only solution to a brewing crisis over North Korea was via a political solution.

Lavrov said the two countries had some differences on the issue however which he referred to as potentially significant "nuances."
