MOSCOW (Reuters) - The Russian Foreign Ministry on Thursday said it wanted the United States to immediately halt all military activity on the Korean Peninsula, the RIA news agency reported.

The United States and South Korea this month resume joint military drills.

RIA cited the foreign ministry as saying such war games did not help reduce tensions on the Korean Peninsula.
