US asks UN to discuss risk of N.Korea 'provocation'

US asks UN to discuss risk of N.Korea 'provocation'The United States on Monday called a UN Security Council meeting this week on the risk of North Korean “provocation” as Pyongyang demands US concessions by a year-end deadline. The United States, which holds this month’s presidency of the Security Council, is scheduling the session instead of a planned meeting on human rights in North Korea, one of the world’s most authoritarian states. This week’s meeting will provide “a comprehensive update on recent developments on the Korean Peninsula, including recent missile launches and the possibility of an escalatory DPRK provocation,” a State Department spokesperson said, referring to the North by its official name, the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea.

UPDATE 1-Russia, Turkey discuss supply of Russian warplanes - RIARussia and Turkey are discussing the possibility of deliveries of the Russian-made Sukhoi Su-57 stealth fighter jet and Su-35 aircraft to Turkey, the RIA news agency cited a Russian official as saying on Wednesday. Russia began delivering S-400 missile systems to Turkey this year, in a step that strained ties with Ankara’s NATO allies and prompted Washington to begin removing Turkey from its programme for manufacturing F-35 jets, which Turkey also planned to buy. The head of Russia’s Federal Service of Military-Technical Cooperation said he planned to discuss the S-400 missile defence system with a Turkish colleague later on Wednesday as well as “possibly deliveries of the Su-35 or Su-57″.
