At a news conference Friday on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov once again hit back on claims his country meddled in the 2016 U.S. election, saying his American counterpart failed to offer any proof of interference.

Lavrov blamed Obama for the collapse in relations between Moscow and Washington.

"If the United States withdraws from the deal in this situation and brings back the unilateral sanctions against Iran that it lifted under this deal two years ago, this would be the absolutely wrong message to North Korea", Lavrov said. "We have to calm down the hot heads", Lavrov said in comments carried by Reuters. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov on Thursday called on the US-led coalition not to spare the terrorist group Jabhat al-Nusra (outlawed in Russia).

The phone will have Android Nougat out of the box, but Google has confirmed it'll receive Android 8.0 Oreo before this year ends. Motorola has offered some brilliant build quality on this new smartphone, which now comes with IP68 water and dust resistance.

When he asked U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson how Russian Federation could confirm his words that Moscow interfered in the American election process, Lavrov said Tillerson replied: "I cannot show you anything because this is confidential information'". "However, no fact has been presented", Lavrov said, adding that there was also no presented evidence of the alleged Russian meddling in the elections in France and Germany. "They did it, and that's the reality we live in". He added that U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has talked about mediation and said if he received such a request "he would try to fulfill that". Trump, who has authority for thousands of nuclear warheads, then responded on Twitter Friday, "Kim Jong Un of North Korea, who is obviously a madman who doesn't mind starving or killing his people, will be tested like never before!"

He stressed that all other parties to the deal, including Russian Federation, support the agreement and don't want it reopened.
