No statement from Dhaka as Bangladesh FM meets Russia's Lavrov at UN

In his UN General Assembly speech on Tuesday, Trump called the nuclear accord as a one-sided "embarrassment" to the United States that he said his country may abandon.

Lavrov, who met privately with Tillerson on two occasions this week, also bemoaned the state of US-Russian relations in his news conference, blaming "Russo-phobic hysteria" in the United States for the strain.

Lavrov recalled World War II when the United States and Russian Federation fought as allies against Nazi Germany.

"Right now, North Korea is being told, 'renounce weapons and we'll lift sanctions", Lavrov said.

"[The Russian-US relations] are impacted by the campaign around the legitimacy of [US] President [Donald] Trump's victory [in presidential election] and around the allegations that Russia ensured his victory by the meddling in the US internal affairs, in the election campaign".

"I can't say I've heard statements that the West will stop playing its sanctions games and will stop ignoring the interests of our mutual cooperation, no, I wouldn't say that", Sergei Lavrov said.

Gatilov's comments came after the USA unveiled a sweeping new Executive Order (EO) that looks to force businesses and financial institutions to choose between working with the US and North Korea. He added that U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has talked about mediation and said if he received such a request "he would try to fulfill that".

A group of citizens in a northeastern Chinese city bordering North Korea have taken to the streets protesting the North's latest nuclear test as concerns over radioactive contamination are mounting there, a US broadcaster reported Wednesday. "Opening up this plan for negotiations basically would be disregarding this agreement".
