Russia and China have proposed that North Korea declares a moratorium on nuclear and missile tests while the United States and South Korea refrain from large-scale military exercises.

The call was issued in a joint statement by the Russian and Chinese foreign ministries following talks between Russian President Vladimir Putin and Chinese President Xi Jinping. The statement came after North Korea tested a missile that flew higher and longer than previous ones, sparking concerns around the world.

Moscow and Beijing suggested that if Pyongyang halts nuclear and missile tests while the US and Seoul freeze military manoeuvres, the parties could sit down for talks that should lead to obligations not to use force and to refrain from aggression.
