Moscow calls on USA and allies to refrain from provoking tensions and exerting "maximum pressure" on Pyongyang.

Russia's Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov pressed U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson during telephone talks on Tuesday to move from the language of sanctions to the negotiating process as quickly as possible.

This may open the way for the de-escalation of tensions between the U.S. and North Korea, Peskov added.

"And in the calculation it is not taken at all that the implementation of such a plan will cause a real humanitarian catastrophe".

The new sanctions include sharply cutting limits on North Korea's imports of refined oil and orders the repatriation of all North Korean nationals working overseas by the end of 2019.

In a statement issued by the Russian Foreign Ministry, Lavrov said that the regional tensions with the aggressive policy of the United States against North Korea must halt, as well as the increased presence of war exercises.

According to TASS, tensions on the Korean Peninsula again flared up in late November when Pyongyang carried out a new missile launch after a 75-day pause.

'Russia's readiness to clear the way for de-escalation is obvious, ' Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said in a phone call with reporters, suggesting President Vladimir Putin could be called in as an unlikely peacekeeper between Kim Jong-un and Donald Trump.

Tillerson and Trump have given mixed messages regarding the administration's stance toward North Korea after Pyongyang launched an intercontinental ballistic missile late last month.

Despite a series of sanctions imposed against North Korea for its weapons program, the country has continued to pursue its nuclear and missile programs.

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un's government has conducted several missile tests this year, which have drawn condemnation from the global community.
