Russia's Ryabkov: clumsy steps on North Korea could "lead to an explosion"

ХIAMEN, China, Sept 4 (Reuters) - Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said on Monday any clumsy steps regarding North Korea could make the situation worse and a political resolution was needed for the crisis.

“Those who are stronger and smarter should show restraint,” Ryabkov told reporters at a BRICS summit in China. “Any clumsy step could lead to an explosion.” (Reporting by Denis Pinchuk; Writing by Maria Tsvetkova; Editing by Jack Stubbs)
