"We still expect common sense to prevail", he said.
An adviser to US President Donald Trump said on Thursday that Washington would use "any appropriate measures" to protect the United States from threats from North Korea which has said it is developing a plan to fire rockets close to US territory Guam.
"I hope that after all groundless accusations against us that the acuteness of this issue for the USA establishment will make them think twice", Lavrov said at a forum when asked regarding possible foreign interference in presidential elections in 2018. "Especially considering the current rhetoric: direct threats of force are being voiced".
Russian Federation has repeatedly voiced concern over the escalation on the Korean peninsula.
"Unfortunately, rhetoric in Washington and in Pyongyang begins to go off scale".
Russian Federation was anxious about these developments, Lavrov said.
Lavrov issued a similar statement earlier this week when he met with North Korean officials.
Mr Lavrov urged both North Korea and the USA to sign up to a plan put forward jointly by Russian Federation and China, which will force North Korea to freeze its missile tests in return for a suspension of joint military exercises conducted by South Korea and the US.
North Korea said on Wednesday that it was considering a missile attack near the U.S. island of Guam, which hosts several USA military bases after President Donald Trump threatened Pyongyang with "fire and fury" over its recurring missile tests.
"Our friend has informed me that according to the initiative of the prime minister, they want to open here in Thailand a center for cyber security under the aegis of ASEAN", Lavrov said, making a reference to the 10-member Association of Southeast Asian Nations whose recent meeting in the Philippines focused heavily on North Korea's weapons program.
