    Hot Button Issue: Latest Launches, Nuclear Tests Escalate Korean Crisis (97)

    Amid Pyongyang’s recent nuclear test, Washington has to develop a joint strategy between the United States, China and Russia to defend their security interests, US Senator Ben Cardin said in an interview on Tuesday.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — Pyongyang’s recent nuclear test requires from the US to develop a common strategy with China and Russia to prevent possible reciprocal US military attack against North Korea, US Senator Ben Cardin said in an interview on Tuesday.

    "We’ve got to find a common agenda working with China and maybe Russia that can tone down this crisis," Cardin told MSNBC. "What we want to do — and I think China and Russia probably agree with this… to find, at least explore, a common agenda on diplomacy."

    Earlier this week, Pyongyang successfully tested a hydrogen bomb that could be loaded on the warhead of an intercontinental ballistic missile, prompting global condemnation.
