Doubts about Washington hinder North Korea deal: Lavrov
"In Washington, a U.S. State Department spokeswoman said the Trump administration still wanted a peaceful, diplomatic solution to the nuclear and missile threat from Pyongyang but said: "(North Korea) has shown through its actions that it is not interested in talks.
UNITED NATIONS-The United Nations says its political chief and North Korea's foreign minister agree that the current situation on the Korean peninsula is the most unsafe security issue in the world.
Mr Lavrov, speaking in Vienna at the OSCE (Organisation for Security and Co-operation in Europe) summit, said it would now be more hard to launch dialogue with the North following the drills.
With both sides escalating the conflict this year through a series of missile and nuclear tests by both North Korea and a joint military drill of the United States and South Korea, Lavrov said, "Now, of course, it will be more hard to create conditions for the resumption of dialogue".
The move by Seoul, its second set of unilateral sanctions in a month, was created to cut off global sources of funding for North Korea's nuclear missile programme, a foreign ministry official in Seoul said.
Mr. Feltman, the UN's under-secretary-general for political affairs, visited the country just after the United States and South Korea launched their biggest-ever joint air exercise.
Early on Saturday Feltman flew to Beijing, a key transit point with the North.
South Korea and the USA have meanwhile been carrying out large-scale military drills in a show of force.
A senior United Nations official left Pyongyang on Saturday after four days of talks with the North Korean Foreign Ministry.
