After President Trump spoke before the UN assembly on Tuesday, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov told reporters that Russia is "extremely concerned" about the President's statements regarding the Iran nuclear deal, North Korea and accused the United States of trying to force its influence on other nations. "We will defend this document, this consensus, which was met with relief by the entire global community and genuinely strengthened both regional and worldwide security".

"It's extremely worrying", said Lavrov, whose country is a signatory to the deal besides the U.S., the UK, France, China and Germany.

Speaking at a press conference in NY a day after his address to the UN General Assembly, Russia's top diplomat once again reiterated the "suspension for suspension" proposal, a joint- initiative with Beijing that would halt joint U.S. - ROK military exercises in exchange for a moratorium on DPRK weapon testing.

Tehran rebuked Trump's rhetoric, with Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif describing it as an "ignorant hate speech" that was "unworthy of a reply".

While Lavrov said that despite tensions in bilateral relations, the dialogue between Moscow and Washington never stopped.

Speaking at a press briefing at the U.N. General Assembly on Friday, Lavrov likened the war of words between President Donald Trump and North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un to "a kindergarten fight between children".

Mnuchin noted that the sanctions will be "forward looking" and will not apply to previous behavior. Mnuchin added "we will call on Russian Federation to do more", declining to be more specific.

The threat from North Korea's nuclear and missile tests has dominated this year's gathering of world leaders, but divisions remain over how to confront Pyongyang. "When I asked (US Secretary of State) Rex Tillerson, 'How can we confirm his words that the interference of Russian Federation into American process is well-documented, ' he said, 'I cannot show you anything because this is confidential information'".

Elsewhere in his speech, Lavorv rejected United States claims that his country was in breach of the 1987 Intermediate-range Nuclear Forces (INF) treaty, which bans ground-launched Russian and American intermediate-range missiles.
