    On Wednesday, The US President Donald Trump said in a televised interview that the decent relations with Russia would likely reduce tensions around the Pyongyang's nuclear issue.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — "I think it would be great if we got along with Russia. I don't think there's anything wrong," Trump told Fox News on Wednesday.

    "I think we could have a good relationship. I think the North Korea situation would be easier settled."

    North Korea has carried out several missile tests in the last few months. In September, Pyongyang tested what it said was a hydrogen bomb, in violation of a UN Security Council resolution.

    The UN Security Council has tightened sanctions against North Korea, but Pyongyang has so far shown no inclination to halt its missile or nuclear programs.
