    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Pyongyang must abandon its nuclear tests, as its ongoing missile launches pose a real danger of a full-scale military conflict, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said.

    "Continuing launches of missiles and DPRK's nuclear tests are in no way contributing to peace and stability in the region, gradually increasing the intensity and thereby creating a real risk of a full-scale military conflict," Ryabkov wrote in the article with Executive Secretary of the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty Organization Lassina Zerbo, which was published in the Kommersant and Foreign Policy media outlets.

    They added that other world powers must refrain from any actions that can further aggravate the situation on the Korean Peninsula.
