U.S. diplomats come to Moscow as situation on Korean Peninsula escalates

U.S. representative for North Korean policy, Glyn Davies, will come to Moscow on March 19-20.

The U.S. diplomat "will meet Russian high-ranking officials, including Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Igor Morgulov," the press office of the U.S. State Department said.

Clifford Hart, U.S. special envoy for the six-party talks, which have been frozen, will accompany Davies.

The U.S. delegation will go from Moscow to Berlin.

The situation on Korean Peninsula has escalated after North Korea had held a testing of a ballistic missile and a nuclear test. The international community considered these actions of Pyongyang as violation of the UN Security Council resolution.

The UN Security Council has passed a resolution to tighten sanctions against North Korea. In response, Pyongyang has annulled the armistice agreement with South Korea and has said it would not comply with the resolution.
