Russia's Lavrov warns against haste over North Korea

MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov urged countries not to jump to conclusions about North Korea’s weekend rocket launch, according to Russia’s Interfax news agency on Tuesday.

“We must avoid any hasty conclusions. Clearly this situation does not cause joy, it causes our concern. We would like to have a clear understanding of all details,” Lavrov was quoted as saying at a Moscow press conference.
