Russia says N.Korean attack is 'unacceptable'
MOSCOW Nov 23 (Reuters) - A senior Russian Foreign Ministry official said on Tuesday that North Korea's artillery attack on a South Korean island was unacceptable and called on both sides to show restraint to prevent a wider conflict.
"We think the use of force on the Korean peninsula, and in international relations in general, is a path that is absolutely unacceptable," the official told reporters on condition his name was not published.
"We think any dispute between North and South Korea must be decided exclusively by diplomatic means," the official said. "Now it is important that the situation does not cross over into a military conflict." (Reporting by Alissa de Carbonnel, writing by Guy Faulconbridge, editing by Conor Humphries)
