“Maria Zakharova, a spokeswoman for the Russian Foreign Ministry, issued the appeal at a news briefing in Moscow.

“Any attempt to resolve the problem over the Korean Peninsula by force will lead to a massive tragedy and enormous loss of life,” said Zakharova.

North Korea had said it was considering plans to fire missiles toward the US Pacific territory of Guam, but North Korean media on Tuesday said leader Kim Jong Un had delayed the decision while waiting for the next US move.
